4WDing with Jono
A great family day out, the Condamine River 4WD track is appealing to amateurs and 4WD enthusiasts alike. Pack a lunch and some cold drinks and start your journey from Boonah.
A picturesque drive up to The Head, if you leave early enough, you may just catch the fog starting to lift from the lush green hills. The drive itself is fairly easy and paved most of the way with a few single lane sections.
You'll make your way towards Killarney, turning off before you reach The Falls. The Condamine Gorge is well signed and you can't miss the turn off called 'Cambanoora Gorge' This is where you will start your journey crossing the Condamine River a total of 14 times.
The Condamine River 4WD track is great for beginners as the crossings aren't too deep (unless there has been heavy rain). With a number of great day spots to stop for lunch, you'll be mesmerised by the sound of flowing water and birds.
Remember to take a rubbish bag with you as there are no rubbish bins along the track.
In summer, remember to pack your togs and towels to cool off in one of the 14 river crossings you'll drive through. Don't forget to keep an eye out for platypus!
Head South West for 14km towards Coochin and turn right at Carneys Creek Road.
Travel for 11km towards The Head. Once you reach The Head, the road merges onto Spring Creek Road.
Continue for 15 km until you cross the Teviot Brook River (for the second time), then turn right onto The Head Road.
Drive for a further 6.5km, then turn right onto Condamine River Road. You will spot the Cambanoora Gorge sign.
