We have a 19.5 foot off-road Lotus caravan behind a DI Turbo Toyota. Although new to caravanning, we are experienced at driving on dirt roads. We are seeking your advice about whether it is feasible to do the following trip (in May) with a caravan: Burdekin Falls Dam (should the road open) to Strathmore then Collinsville; take the Exmoor Road to Eungella Dam and then the route via Homevale National Park to Nebo.

Done the trip in the reverse order from Eungella. Not a bad road and easy to follow.

Thanks Tony. I hear there is a windy steep section just before Eungella - any problems there for the van?

Hi Claire, you shouldnt have a problem with the hill, just be very aware of what your doing with your brakes on the way down, ie use engine braking and dont overheat them , have a stop on the way down if your worried, enjoy the view,.Road from collinsville to Eungella is a nice drive but can be a bit bumpy, a walk in the park for your set up.
Eungella dam is well worth a few days , strongly suggest you avoid the weekends and you might end up with this whole beautiful place to yourselves.Very peaceful spot. No power there so need good batteries/solar etc.
