Re: Central Queensland - Who is interested?




Ray, as a new Xtrail owner, this is exactly what the wife and I were looking for, Some more expereienced travellers that could we could share some good times with and learn a few things on the way.

Cheers,

Steve

Great stuff. We are just getting into Kayaking our selves Scareyann. We are planning on going for a paddle up there in the next few weeks.

This quarry you are telling me about? Where abouts? I have been past the resort and headed up to Sandy point along that rough as guts road.

Re:


Hey ray, we are a potential as well!

Do you know how long the trip would be? Just thinking about leave requirements.

Also, not sure if youve thought this far but are you planning a trip where you get to a base camp and do day trips from there or is it going to be a continual trip from point A to point E, with different overnight stops at B, C, & D?

Re:


Just an update.

I have been pretty busy of late with my work load but I have had enough time to explore the region and I have found some interesting tracks within the forestry not far from rocky with a great camp spot. Any locals would know of Stoney Creek, clear blue freshwater swimming hole and good appointed camp sites.

Fingers cross I will have a maps and locations that can also be loaded into Google Maps too.

Cheers and Beers
Stickman

Re:


Ahh, you mean 5 Rocks and Upper Stoney north of Byfield. A very nice area to play in.
I wish I had low range to go play on the beach.

I hope to go wandering around there again soon. But my next weekday break is over the xmas period when everyone else is there. I will be taking my kayak along to any of these parts.

Additional information about the main area of 5 Rocks.
It's at the lower end of the military area. Great Camping there in the past and now its restricted onto the northern end beach at 3 rivers, 9 mile and freshwater are still open but not for beach camping. The orange bowl is completely closed. Entry to the 9 mile beach is easy at least, but you may need someone with a bigger 4WD to exit the beach in many parts.

Re:


Gday everyone. Sorry for the long departure. I was in the process of organising a trip for around CQ but family comes first and I had to take care of them first.

I still have maps etc of the proposed route and camp sites so I will dig them out and try to organise soemthing for later in the year or pass them onto someone else to take over.

Sorry everyone.
Ray
