Probably go west to avoid the maddening crowds

Darryl had one idea of a Murphy Creek tour to Crows nest, but could we make a two day event

we have 3 days to play with

Where would you like to go Bunya Mountains, Toowoomba, somerset dam, Imbil State Forest Condamine/Queen Mary Falls, Koreelah Park, Border Ranges, Mt Barney Natural Bridge, Mt Warning etc.

write down some suggestions and we will decide at the January Meeting  Big Grin
Wanted your inspirations

Nothing definite came up at the meeting so if you have a suggestion please lodge it here and some of us are keen to go somewhere even overnight but need your inspirations

don't hold back you here  Big Grin
Okay I got two day drivers for a day out over the weekend

No 1 - Mt Mee 

As you can see it is north of Brisbane 
we run to Dayboro and then go into the forest via Lacey Creek Rd and then experience the park

it has some lookouts sightseeing with some mild 4wding involved a really good day out and will take you all day too

can stop for lunch and the Gantry very nice and finish off with a drive to the Rocky water holes before heading for home


this is the parks trails and they are good to drive for the fun of it

No 2 - Border Ranges

Meet at Beaudesert and head south to the border via Lions Rd

then up the mountains to the park this one costs $8 per car so bring change to fill the enevelope and take your registration with you

Have lunch looking at the Qld border from NSW Big Grin

excellent days run with plenty to see along the way and a great view of Mt Warning to and maybe a visit to Natural Arch on the way home

mild dirt roads and easy driving all the way with no change of tyre pressure

Which one to pick? cause I wanna go both but want to test out the new truck too!  Huh 

Any interest let me know

Not sure what day but could be flexible from Sat to Mon but I got to get someone to stay with Mum

and don't forget the Lamb too  Tongue
Thanks Les, some good day strips you have offered up and Hope someone takes you up so you can take the new truck put for a test run.

As we got No interest from members on the night Wendy has booked us in with some of her friends on a friends property some where near Stanthrope so I'm out for the Aussie Weekend.

Okay I am going to Border Rangers on the Sunday for a day trip  Cool

No replies to my options from anyone so I am picking my own this time  Big Grin  

out to Beaudesert up the Lions Rd then up to the Border Rangers for a look around the Park 

campsites lookouts to Mt Warning and Qld and a picnic ground too then driving down the mountain and then onto Murwillumbah for some refreshments before heading back to Qld via Natural Arch Wink

depending on time whether  I stop there for another look at water and holes etc.

then homeward bound via Hinze dam rd

Leaving home around 9am after my mothers carer arrives and travel straight to Border Range

Brisbane forecast partly cloudy, but who knows what is up at the mountains

Any followers please let me know and we make plans

bring food and drink

there is about six hours driving and then some time 2 hrs to see everything

So a good day out of the house  Big Grin Cool Wink Rolleyes Smile Angel
