Pilgrimage

History

It all started when a group of bushwalkers from the Brisbane Bushwalkers Club went on a walk up Mt Barney sometime before 1970. They then decided to hold another “pilgrimage” up Barney the following year. As the numbers grew they decided to hold the Pilgrimage at another site, as there was some concern of so many people going up Mt Barney.

The representatives of Bushwalking Queensland Inc. (then called Queensland Federation Of Bushwalking Clubs – QFBWC) took on the task and organised the first official Pilgrimage to Girraween in 1971. Since then, various affiliated clubs have organised the pilgrimage on behalf of the Federation.
