The Condamine River Road in Killarney’s Cambanoora Gorge is perfect for respectful four wheel drivers, hikers, horse riders and mountain bikers.
The ’14 River Crossings’ is appropriately named after the 14 river crossings you have to make exploring this beautiful part of the Gorge.
Once you cross the first cattle grid, adjust to ‘country mode’ – slow down, breathe the fresh air, look for wildlife and stop for a swim at one of the crossings.
Please note, the Gorge is not a 4WD track or adventure park. It is a public road bordered by private property, so please be respectful of the natural environment and abide by the speed limits.
The Cambanoora Gorge runs between “The Head” (bordered by Wilsons Peak and Mt Superbus) and the town of Killarney. To commence the route from Boonah, start opposite the Police Station, travel out from Boonah along Rathdowney Road and turn right at Carney’s Creek Road. Travel out approximately 12km to cross Teviot Brook floodway and then turn right to The Head. The low road is Condamine Gorge.
During normal conditions the crossings of the Condamine River are relatively shallow. However, during wet weather the river will rise rapidly making it impassable. It is advisable to check conditions with the Warwick Visitor Information Centre or Bureau of Meteorology prior to visiting.
Beyond the road reserve is private property all the way along the road. Private properties may or may not be fenced. Keep to the road and creek area, and observe ‘no trespassing’ signs. The Condamine River Alliance is working with residents of Killarney to sustain the river system. Please take care of our environment.
