Default 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?

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

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

Jacki Chan did it in a Pajero in McWhirters in the Valley years ago... it's in one of his movies

On a more serious note , Just got back last week from Cooloola->Leisha track->Rainbow beach then back through the western firetrail. Sand was firm & easy from the rain , but the firetrail got an inexperienced victim bogged to his guts in mud. I ended up pulling him out only to find he had highway pressures in his tyres. He was stuck for 2 hrs with no phone reception.

2 Weeks before that I tried Caballo rd up to Tamborine mtn. Got to within 400m of the end but it was raining & the track was really chewed up (red clay). It's a 60m-400m altitude climb in about 6k's of track with some tricky sections and some awesome hill climbs(luckily I dropped my runners the week before , or I would have bent them for sure). Don't try this track alone, its pretty remote,and best of all , it's a gazetted public road !

Talking about gazetted public road, we just got back from driving and camping the Alpine tracks in Vic High Country and drove the stock NL up to the top of Mt Pinnibar. This is the highest public road in Aus at 1770m. Cheers.

LOL Al....that one is usually too hot to touch!

There are a few others, but will leave that for another time!
