Both Keelbottom Creek and Little Star River flows west off the Paluma Range, through Defence land and then into the Star River. This area is home to Little Star River Gorge (also called South Cascades) and Trident Falls in Keelbottom Creek. The one is one of those highlights that make a great walk.
