Hot spots in QLD
 
Is there no hot spots in QLD? Daybro is the only place I've been so far. What are other places worth while visiting?

Hi,

How long have you got? :D

Heaps of top spots up here!..........

Fraser Island, Moreton Island, North Straddie for starters - good beach driving.

Mt Mee NP. - tracks near Neurum Creek Bush Retreat. Some challenging bush tracks.

Killarney area. Near Queen Mary Falls CP. Condamine River, with 14 or so creek crossings. Form mild to wild depending if you go after rain!

Landcruiser Mountain Park - good fun - don't go in holiday season though!

Tracks near Esk/Somerset Dam are very nice.

Border Ranges tracks, near O'Reilly's (Duck Creek Rd), Binna Burra , Woodenbong - some good tracks here - we lost a sidestep here once! There's also a VERY steep disused quarry - good fun in an auto going down here! :)

Heaps of other National Parks, etc....

Others will have more ideas too. :)

Cheers,
Sally

Go and get the Dirty Weekends of the South East Queensland book or visit the web site
http://www.dirtyweekends.com.au/
We used this when we first started and now give them as gives to friends just starting out.
As Sally has put, how long do you have? :)
I have just come back from a week at Morton Island (Blue Lagoon Camping Area), then four days at Girraween National Park Near Stanthorpe. While down that way we visited the Boonoo Boonoo National park and Basket Swamp National Park.
Did Sundown National park last year and Murphy Creek Camp park.
So many places to visit, so little time.
Cheers

Sal, I thought Fortitude Valley was the only hot spot in QLD:dunno[1]:

The valley :lol9[1]: Tracks through the mall hey? That'd be fun.

Bellthorpe National Park is one place not to be missed. Here's some good information about the place:

Good on you Sally. Another great track goes from north of Monto thru farms, creeks and up a steep long climb to Kroombit Tops National Park and down the other side to Calliope. On top of the mountain you will see the wreakage of a B-24D Liberator bomber from the 380 Bomber Group that crashed in Feb 1945. Take a tent and camp on top to see a spectacular sunrise over the ocean. Worth the effort. Cheers.

Hi MTN-KAT,

Thanks for the info...sounds wonderful!

Do you have any other details of that trip? What is the track over the mountain like? Is the creek crossing reasonable? (We've got a snorkel).

Monto's near Cania Gorge, isn't it? Can you camp anywhere on the mountain? I suppose QLD National Parks would be the people to contact re info?

Do you have to arrange anything with the farm owners beforehand to cross their property?

How'd you find the trip? Need anything "special" on your Paj? (We don't have a winch).

Thanks in advance for the info!

Cheers,
Sally :)
