The new Scenic Rim Trail is a remarkable joint project between the Queensland Government Parks Department and Skroo Turner’s Spicers Retreats. Starting on Spicers land at Thornton and finishing at Cunninghams Gap, the public trail traverses 47km of private and public land stopping at three newly constructed public campsites administered by the state government. This trail is shown on the map below.
Meanwhile the Spicers version of the trail (not shown here) follows a similar route but stops a number of luxurious venues including two private campsites in Main Range National Park and continues south to Spicers Peak. Click for the rather large PDF:
My new book created with Gillian Duncan is now available for purchase at www.familybushwalks.com.au. It’s our third book, following two books of recreational trails for cyclists; this one is aimed at walkers and runners who want to go bush without committing to long distances or lots of climbing.
300 walks are described in detail including of course a brand new fully researched topo map showing all points of entry, resources like water and shelter, and making clear the effort required to complete the walk.
