As campers set up their tents on Stinson Park, some may recall the heroic actions of Bernard O'Reilly and other locals in 1937 when a small commercial passenger plane crashed in thick rainforest. The campsite in Christmas Creek Rd was the base of operations for the rescue party, who trekked 10km through the bush to save two men, still alive 10 days after their Stinson airliner "City of Brisbane" disappeared on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney.
