  2017 June 4th Sunday Toonumbar Forest Day Trip
Posted by: sirlezz - 12-01-2017, 08:48 AM - Forum: Club Trips - Replies (7)

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

  Corners of Queensland
Posted by: Benjam - 10-01-2017, 11:09 AM - Forum: General chat - Replies (5)

Morning All,

This is a question for the experts.

I am planning a trip to Western Queensland in two vehicles. The first is a Navara D22 decked out for 4WD, with A/T tyres, winch, snap straps and recovery gear, etc.

The second is still undecided. Currently, I drive a Hyundai Santa FE Diesel. It is a good AWD large SUV. So far, it does all I need.

The question is this: Will it go to the 'Corners', particularly if there is a 4WD capable vehicle in company?

I would rather not hire, and purchasing a second 4WD is not an option at present. If my current car is do-able, I would be very happy.

However, I don't want to be the dude on the news getting rescued because of poor planning or stupidity.

Any guidance out there?

Hi everyone.

I'm Ben. Albany Creek.

Just considering getting into 4WD. My son is getting into it and I am doing my research too.

It seems like a fun time and welcoming community.

Kind regards to all.

Well, not new to clubs or 4wding....g'day, I'm doc (Adrian) and partner is Zinta. I've come across from WA where I spent a lot of time in the desert exploring. Previously from Victoria where I cut my teeth 4wding in the high country. I was vice chairman of the WA4WDA and committee member in the western patrol club. Yes I have a patrol. It's a 2005 ST 4.2 which I've owned from new. Extremely modified and now a 4door ute.
Was introduced by troopie pete whom I've known for a while now (originally from the overlander forum). 
More about the truck and us later.

  20170126 Australia Day long weekend
Posted by: White Bush Pig - 15-11-2016, 08:43 PM - Forum: Past trips - Replies (4)

Hi everyone. 
I was advised today by Paul Burgess that he and his family have made a booking to stay at Borumba Dam for the Australia day long weekend. This is the same location as our Xmas party last year - Imbil.
In 2017 Australia day falls on a Thursday so if you are planning on getting away be sure to book in for the Friday off work.
This is a great location with a creek close by for swimming and some fantastic 4wd tracks to go exploring.
If you are interested in going on this trip be sure to book in early as no doubt it might be a popular choice for the long weekend.
