Hi again all,

As some of you may remember a while ago I was seeking advice on travelling with a dog, which I got some very useful ideas.

While I was searching I found a wolf creek camp ground in Queensland, I know it isn't the famous wolf creek crater site from the movies but I am taking my favorite English inlaws camping when they come across next and just want to see their face when they see the sign as we pull in for a camp.

I have searched again for it but for the life of me cant find it again.
Anyone know where it is?

OP is looking for a similar sounding one in QLD, not the WA one we all know

Thanks Frank,

I have found on this forum that it is better to ignore replies that deliberately contradict the original post, just ends up in an all in fued, seems some members enjoy it.

Isn't pointing out it deliberately contradicts the OP just the same?

Thanks for that Peter,

Looks like I am going to have to upgrade my maps, haven't done any travelling since 1992 so none of my surviving maps have global referencing, nor do any of my new camp site books.

Google earth is as useless as tits on a bull.

Nearest town, distance and direction maybe?

The cross hairs cursor at the top left. It's a bit small, sorry.

There are not many maps that have it on. It's a very minor stream.I go looking for names in the Gazetteer of Australia Place Name Search. If you put "wolfe creek" into that you will get a selection of names. Click on the Qld one and you will get a box full of info. Scroll down to the bottom and you will see "Zoom to." Click on that and you will get a map with the stream labelled Wolfe Creek.

That site generally only gives sites that are recognised by the Geographic Names Board. If the site that you remember was known by a colloquial name then best of luck finding it.

The map I used is the Clermont sheet of the Aust Govt 250k Natmap series from long ago. (Is a more up to date set available?)

I used your coordinates, Peter, to manually drive the cursor in Ozi Explorer on a map of Queensland. Once the cursor was reasonably located, it was just a matter of selecting the most useful map and fine-tuning the position.

Not as elegant a method as yours, but able to be done off-line if you ever wanted to do that.

Cheers

Another option is to open Ozi and on the map create a waypoint (this is a dummy waypoint) then open the dummy waypoint and "edit properties" replacing the lat/long that was showing originally, with the lat/long posted above, then "save waypoint" and then click on the newly saved waypoint and click on "show on map"

Whichever you find easiest

Google maps is able to handle Lat/Long info. I never remember the entry format in the address box, so always have to - ahem - google search to find out.

The Wolfe ck near Dysart, Qld becomes Phillips Ck and that is the one the road north of Dysart crosses. I doubt if there would be any campsites on Wolfe Ck itself.

If looking for a river or a creek I always use a site called Bonzle

It may not find every one but will find most of them.
