Numinbah Valley, Ships Stern, Best of All Lookout, and Mt. Warning (Wollumbin) – a panorama.

With all the inclement weather we have been experiencing lately, I thought I’d check out the scene near Beechmont in the stunning Gold Coast hinterland.

This is a 3-row, 19-image panorama. Included in this scene is the Numinbah Valley, Ships Stern, Best of All Lookoutand Mt. Warning (Wollumbin) – the remnant plug of the ancient Tweed Shield Volcano.
