Australian folk musicians Penny Davies and Roger Ilott have written a song about Girraween National Park.
Penny Davies about the song:
We moved to Stanthorpe in 1987 and immediately started visiting Girraween National Park, loving it from the start. Roger had written the tune for this song while we were still in Sydney but the words had never really been right - until we met Girraween. I liked the idea of a verse for each of the four different and glorious seasons in the park. I have to explain to people that "where the Bald Rock flows" refers to the creek - Bald Rock Creek - there are no volcanic eruptions occurring any more in that area!
I love a sense of "circularity" in song lyrics and so the seasonal subject was a perfect vehicle to tell the story of this magical place with its many faces - the name means "place of flowers" and it is particularly lovely in spring when there are thousands of flowers there. However, each day of the year holds different treasures and vistas in beautiful Girraween.
