One Tree Hill

One Tree Hill

  • Tabletop Mountain

    Tabletop Mountain or ‘One Tree Hill' as it was originally know, due to the fact that hardly any trees exist on the mountain top itself.

    Tabletop Mountain is located in the suburb of Rangeville, and was the location of the infamous ‘Battle of One Tree Hill’.

    Tabletop Mountain is the remains of a now extinct volcano that last erupted some 20 million years ago. The mountain itself has an elevation of approx. 596 meters above sea level and has a height of 158 meters from the base to the top of the mountain.

    Tabletop is a popular tourist attraction that can be viewed from several locations on the east side of Toowoomba including Picnic Point.

    It is also popular with bush walkers and hikers and takes approximately 20 minutes to scale the mountain and another 20 minutes to descend.

  • The Battle of One Tree Hill

    The Battle of One Tree Hill took place on September 12, 1843 and was fought between the Jaggera Tribe (Multuggerah was the leader of the tribe and his followers) and the white European settlers. The Jaggera tribe fought to protect their sacred land from the settlers making their way inland from Moreton Bay, known now as Brisbane.

    The Jaggera Tribe tried to stop the settlers from trespassing on their land by ambushing sheep and supplies, and the settlers retaliated. Multuggerah and his tribe sought refuge on the top of One Tree Hill, where sadly Multuggerah was killed.
