A FEW DAM GOOD LAKES - PHOTOS

Our view - Lake Wivenhoe

Magic camp spots

Our evening campsite view at Lake Cressbrook

We found this amazing railway tunnel - it cut right through the Great Dividing Range

Broadwater National Park near Dalby

A FEW DAM GOOD LAKES


Our next trip is just a quick jaunt for a few days, taking in some of the great lakes and dams near Brisbane. Our drive takes us over Mt Glorious (quite a climb for Aussie Roamer) to our first camp spot at the Logan Hill campsite on Wivenhoe Dam. What luxury. Each site has its own area and barbecue. There are even hot showers! We continue past more lakes, stopping at Lake Cressbrook. Yet another gorgeous camp spot. The next day we do the walks in Crows Nest National Park. Despite all the rain we have had lately the waterfall is very thin, and the bush very dry.

Our drive takes us on to Broadwater National Park just out of Dalby to another pretty spot with lots of bird life. Finally it is time to start heading home, passing acres and acres of cropped cotton fields. Our last overnight spot is at Yarramalong Weir near Milmeran.

THE START OF OUR AUSSIE ADVENTURES-PHOTOS


We camped right beside this old wooden beidge on our first night out

Going for a hike - this looks serious

But the views are sensational

In Bundie at looking at Bert Hinklers planes
