Mountain range hilltop plateau. A quiet bush camp with multiple near flat sites to pitch your tent or park the camper. Glimpses through the gum trees of long views down through the Widgee valley. 

The district has some crystal clear swimming holes (seasonal), mountain lookouts and fun 4WD treks. Very close to Wratterns National Park. Also close to "The Chimneys", "Kinbombi Falls", Goomeri bakery and many miles of quiet bush tracks and rural countryside.  

Bring your horses (and temp fencing) for direct access to the "National Horse Trial" which runs through the property. Many quiet trails to ride. Ask for a mud map from Host.

Coming from Gympie way? Come up the back way (4WD only) through Widgee and reduce 35km off the highway (via Kilkivan) trip . 

 

You will need to be quite a competent off roader to take the steep (sometimes rough) hill. Here are the directions ,

* Head out to Widgee

* Turn onto "Upper Widgee Road" going past the showgrounds.

*A few K's out you will take "Thornside Road" on the right.

* Approx 6-8ks you will a Y-intersection. Take the left fork onto "Upper Thornside Road".

* Continue on the main track , up the steep pinches and through a gate'.

* Continue to a T-intersection turn left through the 2nd gate and continue up up and up until the last gate. 

*Continue main track (don't take the track on left) and it starts to get even tighter and overgrownish. Don't worry you are as good as there. You will see an old diesel fuel bowser on your right , just follow the Hip camp website directions from there.

If you decide on this "up the back way adventure" please let us know. Peter will keep his phone close by in case you need some assistance.

Great out of the way place. Watch out for the widow maker above the toilet, hopefully Peter will cut it down soon.
