The Motorama 4x4xMORE Club is organising a trip with a difference. We're going to explore some new areas around Mt Barney in the Scenic Rim. This is not a 4x4 trip, but a vehicle with high clearance is required.
Departing Bigriggen Park, the team head to Mt May, where we have access to an exclusive park, a stop for morning tea & will head out to the lookout over Mt Barney.
Guaranteed, you'll want to come back to this place again!
Where: Bigriggen Park
When: Saturday 12 December, 2020
Cost: $45 per vehicle (incl. occupants). Trip includes access to 4X4 instructors and all QPWS/4x4 permits.
We'll be running two tag-along tours on Saturday 12 December, the first between 8.30am - 12pm and the second, between 1.30pm - 5pm. Each tour is limited to 20 vehicles. Due to COVID restrictions we won't be able to provide lunch, but there are many options around Mt Barney to enjoy and explore before or after your tag-along.
The Scenic Rim is one of South East Queensland's hidden gems. A couple of suggestions to extend your time:
Bigriggen Park- Stay and take the kids for a dip in the creek. Cool, flowing water, small rapids - there are hours of fun for the kids (and big kids). Tip: pack an inflatable floating ring or blow up boat to maximise the fun.
Bookings are required directly with Bigriggen, and 4x4xMORE Members will get a 10% booking (not available for online bookings, payment required on arrival)
Rathdowney - It's hard to beat a counter meal in Rathdowney at the 'Rathy Pub. 4.2* from hundreds of reviews... they can't be wrong!
Rathy Pub: 4287/73 Collins St, Rathdowney QLD 4287
Boonah - Take the scenic road back via Boonah. Some great local cafe's, country butchers and produce stores worth checking out.
Mount Maroon - Head out to Lake Maroon for an afternoon swim / walk or picnic lunch. Go for a hike up Mt Maroon.
Mount Barney - Follow your nose out along Upper Logan Road, or the aptly named Barney View Road for some spectacular views of Mount Barney. This is the road right outside the turn off to Bigriggen Park,
