We'll be climbing up into the Main Range National Park and then turning onto the Condamine River Road. Yes, the road does really cross the Condamine River 14 times, with easy and shallow well formed rock bottomed crossings.
The trip will then head into the township of Kilarney and out thru to Brown's Falls Picnic Ground. Only recently refurbished, the grounds offers, security off the main road, wide expanses of grassed areas, tables, BBQ's, new loos and a 20 min walking trail to the falls. We'll stop here for a picnic or BBQ lunch, soak up the summer sun and let the kids have a run around and the older kids a chin-wag.
After a leisurely Sunday lunch we'll head on up to Queen Mary Falls, take a peak at the falls and head on back down into Boonah, we'll then head back to the highway for the cruise home.
