Tribute to Bill Goebel
“I was pretty happy to get EPA's 2007 Excellence Award for Volunteering last year. Working there wasn't just a job, I did it because I love Girraween - the big granite rocks, the lyrebirds and wombats, the flowers and all the other inhabitants of this beaut place.” Extract From NPAQ article - Go Bill! One man make a difference.
His association with NPAQ began in 1947 when he would use his timber truck for carting people and their gear into the park from the train at Wallangarra. He also helped them with campsites and took them to interesting places to walk and climb, and to great wildflower areas in spring. He loved the walking and the friendships, whilst members learnt about the area from Bill.
Bill was a man who was completely connected to the landscape he called home. We will remember him fondly and will always be grateful for his efforts in protecting this special place, and for sharing his passion and knowledge. Girraween is a place that will forever hold the legacy of Bill Goebel.
