Day trip around Brisbane

Postby Chippy76 » Sun Mar 25, 2007 10:07 am

Hey folks!
Id love to organise a day trip around brisbane for members, possibly with a view to organising a few camping trips. Does any one have any suggestions where they would like to go ?All ideas are appreciated, it doesnt have to be a 4wd trip, tho if we all have 4bys then maybe we will organise one. I dont want to shut out those with cars tho. Let me know what dates suit you guys as well. I look forward to meeting you all!

hi chippy you should have asked 2 weeks ago i did a small recon down past boonah & met up with rainbow gypsy. but i still wouldnt mind going somewhere & meeting more new friends.
treehouse if you go to the introductions section & look at rainbow gypsys intro she gives a great direction of a place just outside of boonah & also have a look at park reviews i did a recon of a few places & put some picks in too. :grin:

Hi guys

While I am not there now Brisbane used to be my home base. Have a suggestion for a good day out.

Brisbane to Kilcoy through Woodford. - Morning tea there with a great bakery.
Kilcoy to Jimna - visit Peach Trees State Forest Park - lunch
Peach Trees to Charlie Mooreland State Forest Park via Sunday Creek.
Charlie Mooreland to Booloumba Creek State Forest Park.
Booloumba to Bruce Highway via Maleny and Landsborough
Landsborough to Coochin Creek State Forest Park - afternoon tea
Cooching back to Brisbane via Highway.

I have done this trip and while it is a full day you get to see four really good State Forest Park camping areas.

Cheers


Derek

Derek's suggestion is not a bad one. You are looking at about 350km (off the top of head). Nearly all bitumen except for Sunday Creek Rd is dirt but good for 2WD and the road into Booloumba is dirt with some creek crossings (again 2WD ok).

There are some good day areas at Peach Trees, Charlie Moreland and Booloumba for lunch.

Willing to give it a go.

meet up half way

Postby gypsy rainbow » Sat May 19, 2007 12:10 am

just a suggestion maybe we can meet up half way,so many places to visit around brissy,,i guess it all depends weather we want to vegi out or adventure out somewhere on the day, flanagan reserve has bbq areas and maybe you might want to put a line in ,as thier is a creek thier,cant promise you will catch a fish lol,and its only a 1 hour and half from brissy ,in that same area,thier is many other areas to explore ,you have boonah, lake moogerah,you have also have pointro camping at the maroon dam,allthough you have to pay permit to fish thier,wyamalong camping ground and gorge camping,as stated from rocketman,so yes it all depends on how long ppl are willing to travel on the day i guess,ok i gave my opinion,next, :grin:

Another option is travel to Beaudesert, head along the Lions Rd towards Kyogle. There is Andrew Drynan Park, and then Border Ranges NP with a good lookout at the Pinnacle. Some dirt road but can be traversed in a 2WD. Even though its roach country (ah yes state of origin time) there are 2 campgrounds at sheep station creek and the forest tops. You can come back through Kyogle and Rathdowney and visit flanagans, bigriggen, mt may etc.

Wow there's lots to think about here for sure. Day trippin would be good, but for overnight camping i must find places where i can take hellhound, (he's a good boy really) but he can't be left home alone cos i'd miss him.
I'm free in a few weeks time to stickybeak about the place cos this weekend i'm gutter crawling the curbside cleanup area nearby for freebies.
thanks for the tips and links, i'll start thinking about an action plan.

Treehouse,
As i have mentioned somewhere in another post, Flanagans Reserve at Rathdowney accepts Dogs (controlled on a lead) and is a pretty nice place to chill out for a weekend.

Im considering a day trip up to Queen mary's falls via the condamine gorge road, and a few wineries. If anyone is inerested in a trip like this le me know! Ill be dragging along the 2 kids and the preg wife. So it wont be anything too long or adventurous!

Cheers!
