This is a lovely place at Cunninghams Gap. Horse riding, billy tea, damper, etc. here is a first draft of an orienteering map which I made a few years ago. I’ve not yet had a chance to go there and fieldcheck it so it’s incomplete and out of date. This is of course private land.
One part of this place really is called The Bedroom. This is an orienteering map for schoolkids on school camp riding in tinnies. Yes really!
This is a 4-6 hour scramble so don’t take it lightly, equip yourself properly and leave with plenty of daylight remaining:
Here is a tough and unrelenting track we did not put in the Family Bushwalks book because it’s a little too remote, dangerous and exposed.
Apparently it’s also possible to travel west along the Border Track from Mt Cougal to Springbrook, and NE then SE from Boyds Butte to the Cascades.
The last of the new town maps. Like Blackbutt and Yarraman, this needs more work for accuracy and detail. I’m dependent on the kindness of locals to achieve that and would appreciate any feedback.
Another town map for the next edition of the BVRT Guide:
A street map of Yarraman in the far north of the Toowoomba Region and at the northern end of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. This is intended for the next edition of our BVRT Guide booklet.
My sons’ school, we live round the corner:
These are primarily horse / mountain bike routes which are signed and maintained. The section of Allery Trail passing through private land leaves me wondering whether this is a legit; it does not follow the road reserve. Strava tells me it’s well used.
The nice folk at Yarraman Caravan Park asked me to make a map of the walk / horse / cycle trails which are signposted around the town.
