How about deciding on a place to meet for the day (sharps park, Canungra ) . Then you can decide to camp over or a day trip. Kids have a creek to play in , picnic tables , bbqs, fire rings , shelter and toilets . Dogs allowed. Then the weekend , October, friday night 26th . Sat 27th and Sun 28th. Sharps park is only five minutes from Canungra .Derek's Suggestion (17 May)
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.
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. Troy's Suggestion (19 May)
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
