  20170708 Simpson Desert + 3 Corners
Posted by: troopiepete - 10-02-2017, 11:18 PM - Forum: Club Trips - Replies (2)


I am looking at possibly running a trip to the 3 Corners of Queensland, The Dig Tree and The Simpson Desert - just under 5000km round trip

I have a starting date and a fairly detailed day by day plan but nothing is or will be set in stone!
Also looking at do we extend the trip by up to a week and spend more time smelling the roses.

I have also posted the idea of this trip in Troop Carriers of Australia

More details to come but the Number 1 restriction is no Towing is permitted - Full STOP!
If you must tow then run your own trip!

  2017 April 9th Sunday Toonumbar Forest Day Trip
Posted by: sirlezz - 12-01-2017, 08:48 AM - Forum: Club Trips - Replies (1)

Hi guys

Sunday day tour Big Grin

Planning on a day trip to Toonumbar Forest and the dam for lunch "Bells Bay Camp ground" Tongue
Then onto the Condamine and Boonah via Geiger Rd on the way home

This is an easy drive for most of the way with some great views of the mountains lunch by the water followed by some creek crossings and finishing with a technical drive before heading for home

We travel from Beaudesert up the Lions Rd and into NSW, traverse the Toonumbar Forest Rd down to the dam, then return for the climb back up to Coxs rd to go over the mountain down to Woodenbong and off to the Condamine River Rd of 14 river crossings although one of them has been culverted and you can't get your wheels wet, then up the Head Lookout and a down the mountain range run to Boonah,
Finishing with the challenging Geiger Rd run, ( If it is wet we may go in the reverse direction as this is more manageable)

Google Maps took some coaxing to get it right to our itinerary,  but it is mostly accurate Cool


This day tour will take at around 8 hours of driving to complete Angel

Starting meeting point Hungry Jacks to leave by 8am
be there earlier if you want drinks or food before we leave

Lunch at the dam via  Bells Bay picnic grounds day use area

Back track back up the range  to Coxs rd and then over the mountain to Woodenbong and then onto the Condamine river run
Finishing via Geiger Rd run and then home again

you won't be bored Angel
