Route highlights

  • Be mesmerised by water at Undercliffe Falls, located on the Bookookoorara Creek 27kms east of Stanthorpe via Liston. The falls descend 150m, over a 30m wide rock face into a deep pool ideal for swimming in summer.
  • Divert off Oracles Way, north of Liston and discover Aloomba Lavender Farm — the perfect place to pick up a beautiful gift and learn about the value of lavender. It is also a 4000 acre cattle farm.
  • Bald Rock, located in Bald Rock National Park (NSW) and adjoining Girraween National Park, rises to 1277m above sea level and towers about 200m above of the surrounding bushland. Witness the awesome granite dome, 750m long and 500m wide.
  • Boonoo Boonoo National Park protects one of the region’s few remaining natural river landscapes and is home to the inspiring Boonoo Boonoo Falls, the highest in the region at 210m.
  • Further along Mt Lindesay Road is another hideout of the notorious bushranger Captain Thunderbolt. There is a path to the hideout, about 300m from the parking area. Large granite boulders form two caves. This area is also home to a significant part of World War II history. A cement wall and upright posts are remnants of the Brisbane Line fortifications established as Australia’s second line of defence in case of an invasion from the north. They look simple but were effective tank traps. In the course of the war there were up to 10,000 troops stationed in the area.
