Mountain Property, owned by Bernard and Lorraine Mahon, began as a dairy
farm settled in 1862.
and Mary Mahon came to Australia from Ireland on the Maryborough and
settled in Pine Mountain. The dairy farm produced vegetables and eggs
aided by the land army in the second world war and sold produce locally
and throughout Brisbane.

Lorraine Mahon began farming olives. The property now grows three
different varieties of olives with over 1,000 olive trees. In 2006

now produce olive products, lime cordial, chutneys and jams and host an
annual Watercress Creek Olive Festival. The 15th annual Watercress
