Lamington National Park Green Mountains
In 1896, Robert Collins a newly elected Member of Parliment began campaigning for a National park in the Mcpherson Ranges. Having visited the USA some 18 years earlier, he was impressed with the Parks being created there at the time and was determined to push ahead with our own. Romeo Lahey, a timber miller from Canungra joined the lobbying and in 1915 the Lamington National Park was proclaimed, two years after Robert collins death. The 18800 HA park was named after the Queensland Governer Lord Lamington even thou Lahey favoured Woonoongora, the Yugambha name for the mountain.
