Event description

Description

Where the Queen meets the King is a swirling discordance of colour, chemistry and history. A guided walk.

Join geologist Dr Keith Corbett for a walk through a special rainforest, with a history related to a huge bushfire, to see the extraordinary meeting of two very different rivers. The orange-coloured Queen River, carrying its 100-year-old legacy of mine waste, meets the mighty dark-grey King River, hurtling down the gorge after creating power at a power station just upstream. Hear the stories of the rivers, the forest, the old myrtle survivors, and the glaciers which once filled the valleys.
