Flinders Peak scenic flight
Flinders Peak is part of the Teviot range and is the highest mountain in the greater Brisbane area. It is clearly visible from Mt Coot-tha and many other places around southeast Queensland.
The local Ugarapul people call Flinder’s Peak, Booroong’pah or Booroongapah. It is a sacred site because they believe that the powerful spirit, “Yurrangpul”, lives there, and guards their traditions and sacred places. His name is similar to the local word for green tree frog: “Yurrang”. The green tree frog is the totem of the Ugarapul people.
Flinders Peak was originally named High Peak in July 1799 by Lieutenant Matthew Flinders RN (1774–1814) navigator, hydrographer and scientist, HM Colonial Sloop Norfolk. The name Flinders Peak was first used by John Oxley (1785?-1828) Surveyor General during his explorations in 1824, as a change from High Peak of Flinders
