Ginger Factory, Yandina

Yandina

Conondale National Park

Conondale

Queensland

Conondale, like many rural towns in South East Queensland, is pretty. The town might be a great spot for a chance to catch your breath during what is a very scenic drive but there is something about Conondale that is as subtle as it is magic. When travelling from Maleny, Conondale is the first opportunity to take a close-up and easy look at the river that gives its name to the valley through which it passes - the Mary River. Just near where the Maleny-Kenilworth Road crosses the Mary River, Fritz Park offers the chance for a picnic and time to contemplate exactly why this little village is so special. Conondale is distinctive because of its proximity to the rugged beauty of the range to its west called the Conondale Range. Within the Range a national park called Conondale National Park is an unspoilt and undeveloped park of harsh beauty. Conondale National Park protects important remnants of grassy open Eucalypt forest, tall wet sclerophyll forest and subtropical rainforest that once covered large areas of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. The park is the central undisturbed core of an extensive area of forest reserves in the Conondale Range and an important refuge for many rare and threatened animals, including the Mary River Turtle, which, until recently, had not been discovered. It is important to remember that this park is suited to very experienced walkers only. The turn off to the national park is about 15 kilometres north of Conondale at Sunday Creek Road. The turn is marked by a pretty park called Keith and Ivy Boon Memorial Park.

Hot Air Ballooning at Nerang

Nerang

Queensland

Many travellers use the entry to Nerang as the benchmark that they have arrived at the Gold Coast. Indeed, it's like a golden gateway with the beaches to the east and the hinterland to the west. Punctuated by the beautiful Nerang River, this suburb has come a long way since its waterway was named "little" by its original Indigenous inhabitants. The river itself is a popular place for picnics, boating and fishing with a platform at Arthur Earle Park allowing easy access to catch the bream, flathead, whiting and trevally which inhabit these waters. Despite being inland, water seems to be the theme of Nerang, which is also home to Hinze Dam and its recreational facilities with state-of-the-art interpretative centre; lakeside parks; walking, bike and horse trails; and barbecue areas. A historic river mill built in 1910, with a café along the banks of the river, is also a highlight of a visit here. The river may be little, but Nerang's heart is big.

Chinaman Creek, Cloncurry

Cloncurry

Queensland

The township of Cloncurry in North West Queensland occupies a key hub point in the Outback. Known as 'the friendly heart of the Great North West'. Cloncurry was founded in 1867 by Ernest Henry. It was built upon copper mines in the surrounding district, which quickly led to it being one of the most prosperous towns in the Outback. Today, Cloncurry's core industries include grazing, copper and gold mining, transport and mining services. Qantas was conceived in Cloncurry and their aircraft hangar still stands at Cloncurry Shire Airport. The Royal Flying Doctors Service was launched Cloncurry with the first flight on 17 May 1928. The John Flynn Place Museum pay homage to this crucial part of Outback life. Visit a working open-cut mine with the Ernest Henry Mine Tours, departing from Mary Kathleen Park every Wednesday and Friday from May to September. There is too much to see in just one day, so spend a couple of days in 'The Curry' and don't miss out on seeing some of the area's most popular attractions. Mary Kathleen Memorial Park and Museum houses history and memorabilia on Cloncurry, Mary Kathleen and surrounding districts. A 'must see' is the Burke and Wills history display, including Burke's water bottle in the Explorers Corner. The mineral and gem collection is ranked by experts as one of the most comprehensive in Australia. Also on display are Aboriginal artefacts and a portrait and breastplate of George, King of Friezland. Cloncurry now services the sheep and cattle properties in the surrounding district and is an important sales centre for livestock.

Tidal Flats, Burketown

Burketown

Queensland

The Gulf Savannah is an interesting region to visit all year. However during the monsoon season, transportation methods must be carefully considered, as some parts of the Gulf Savannah region suffer from a lack of road infrastructure. Burketown sits on the Albert River and on the east-west dividing line between the wetlands to the north and the beginning of the savannah grass plains (Plains of Promise) to the south, some 25 kilometres from the coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria. The Albert River is tidal and the Gulf is accessible from Burketown by boat. Surrounding environs include flat, grassy plains to the south and immense salt flats and wetlands to the north. The Nicholson River is some 17 kilometres to the west and is fresh water and perennial. The wetlands are breeding grounds for crocodiles, barramundi and prawns and a vast amount of bird species which are prolific during the summer months. The grasslands to the south are the habitat of a great array of wildlife including emus, kangaroos and birdlife. Burketown is 425 kilometres north of Mt Isa.

Spring Bluff

Spring Bluff

Queensland

Spring Bluff is a beautiful valley tucked in the ranges north of Toowoomba and best known for its picturesque Railway Station. Spring Bluff Railway Station is a favourite day trip for visitors and locals alike. Its gardens are magnificent during Spring and Summer and steam train rides are a feature of September during Toowoomba's Carnival of Flowers. The Railway Station features a coffee shop in the station master's cottage. It's worth visiting Spring Bluff just for the interesting drive down the range off the New England Highway through to Murphy's Creek. The road meanders through lush bushland, following the path of the creek.

Yuleba

Yuleba

Queensland

To look at it on a map, Yuleba looks like a little town on the Warrego Highway about mid-way between Roma and Miles. Sure, it is a well-equipped little town offering many services for travellers, but it's also a place with a rich and important history and more than a thing or two to entice you to stay awhile. Yuleba features in the story of the Cobb & Co era, as it was between Surat and Yuleba that Cobb & Co scheduled its very last horse-drawn coach mail run on 16 August 1924. You can retrace that last run and visit sites of local significance such as the Cobb & Co Mural, Aboriginal native wells (also a pleasant picnic spot) and Cobb & Co Corduroys - where cypress pines were laid to make roads passable in the horse-drawn era. Keen fossickers can hunt for opalised and petrified wood and agates at The Maryanne, and there's plenty of room for bush camping beside the dam. Yuleba's scenic Judd's Lagoon and Wetlands is abundant in flora and fauna, providing a tranquil natural backdrop for bush camping and the perfect spot to relax and connect with nature.

Gregory Downs Hotel

Gregory Downs

Queensland

The old Gregory Downs Hotel holds court as the centre of town society. Originally built to serve passengers on the coach run from Burketown, the hotel is in the historic village of Gregory Downs which accesses the perennially-flowing Gregory River. At one time it was a Mounted Police post. In World War II, officers at this station won fame when they searched with Doomadgee Aboriginal trackers for the crew of the ditched plane Little Eva. The crew flew out of Iron Range Airport for a bombing run to then-New Guinea and they became disoriented in a tropical storm. Gregory Downs Station was one of the first cattle runs in the Gulf Savannah. It was one of a range of properties established on Lort Stokes' Plains of Promise, a vast monsoonal savannah stretching from Gregory to the Leichhardt Rivers. The peaceful waters of The Gregory remain a natural attraction. Here you can canoe year-round the site hosts thousands for the annual May Labour Day weekend canoe race. While camping has traditionally been in the riverbed, public hygiene has prompted discussions to move away from the river's edge. Rent a canoe or time your visit to coincide with Gregory's racing and rodeo calendar. The Gregory Ball is a not-to-be missed social event. It may take a while to get here, but you will be guaranteed a load of fun.
