Here is an extract from one of our locale guides:
Ravensbourne National Park is a lush pocket of rain forest just 800 metres from our front gates with bushwalks vary from very short to longer hikes. The park preserves one of the few examples of rain forest that originally covered much of the local area. This day-use park has short walks through rain forest and open Eucalypt forest, which support an amazing array of native birdlife.
Various walking tracks allow you to view features of the rainforest and open forest. While the walks are short - only one is longer than a kilometre - you can spend a full day exploring the park. You can discover some of the forest's more interesting features on the Cedar-block self-guiding walk.
Facilities are available at the park and two picnic areas are provided. Both have picnic tables, wood barbecues, firewood, water and toilets. The Cedar Block picnic area also has a shelter shed. Enjoy a panoramic view over the range towards Brisbane, the Scenic Rim and the Lockyer Valley from the Gus Beutel Lookout.

You don't have to be an angler or windsurfer to enjoy what Lake Cooby has to offer. Read more...
It has covered and grassy picnic areas, gas barbecues, children's playground, basketball and beach volleyball courts. Fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing are popular activities. There are two boat ramps.(Petrol outboards allowed.) A 5 km walking circuit start at the camping ground, loops around the lake shore, and then back over the lightly wooded ridge. You may see the resident red deer and loads of kangaroos and wallabys
You don't even have to get wet to enjoy what Lake Perseverance has to offer. Just take a drive across the dam wall to the recreation area. What could be better than enjoying a picnic or barbecue in a quiet bushland setting while overlooking the tranquil waters of Lake Perseverance. Unlike Cooby and Cressbrook, Toowoomba's other water supply lakes, fishing, boating and windsurfing are not permitted at Lake Perseverance. But that doesn't mean there is nothing to do
