CONDAMINE RIVER ROAD

Condamine Rive Crossing

Condamine Gorge is around 2 1/2 hours South West of Brisbane. It's not a four-wheel-drive track or adventure park but is a public road bordered by private property, we ask that you please be respectful of the natural environment and abide by the speed limits. The Condamine River Road is perfect for respectful four-wheel drivers, hikers, horse riders, and mountain bikers.


The ’14 River Crossings’ is appropriately named as there are 14 river crossings to traverse when exploring this beautiful part of the Gorge, which runs between “The Head” and the town of Killarney.

During normal conditions, the crossings along the Condamine River are generally shallow. With the change to wet weather, the river could rise rapidly making it impassable. Please ensure you check conditions at Warwick Visitor Information Centre or Bureau of Meteorology before planning your trip.

Main Range National Park extends from Wilsons Peak in northern NSW up to Cunninghams Gap in south-east Queensland. It's one of the lesser-known parks, but well worth a visit, and is popular with hiking and bushwalking groups.

In some sections along the Condamine River, you will spot sections of the old rabbit fence, originally meant as a barrier to separate QLD and NSW. Don your hiking boots and head up the rabbit fence, the fantastic views at the top of Wilsons Peak will not disappoint. Queen Mary Falls, also offers some beautiful walks.

Lake Moogerah

Approximately an hour’s drive from the main track, Lake Moogerah offers picnic areas, BBQs, a small café, and several toilet facilities. Numerous picnic tables and chairs offer outstanding views of the lake or take a walk across the dam wall to take some great photographs of the lake. The other side of the dam wall offers a fabulous view of Mount Edwards and a walking track that leads to a lookout, the path then meanders downhill to another picnic area.

We love Queensland too!
