Hi Guys, I am up on the Gold Coast at me mum's,
I am looking for a day or two's trip west of here, somewhere around Roma or Dalby maybe, anyone know of something to do that would entertain my 15yo son as well as me in those areas.
I hadn't planned a trip but we are getting a bit bored here, we've done the parks; seaworld , warner bros etc B4, so i thought a little exploroz would be in order.

any suggestions TONIGHT would be appreciated, otherwise we'll catch you all when we get back to hell on earth or bleepney as truckster would have it.

G'day Waynepd,
Do you (and your son) fish ?? Got yer camping gear ??
If so, there is a really nice (free) camping area on Oakey Creek, just a few K's south of the Bowenville turn-off approx. midway between Toowoomba & Dalby (on the Warrego H'way)...
Good sized waterhole is home to shrimp, yabbies, catfish (jew), & yellowbelly (to name a few).. I believe the odd (Murray) cod has been known to have been caught there as well....
Also a popular swimming hole for the young-uns... (probably ruin the fishing, though)...
Being school hol's, there will undoubtedly be other campers there, but highly unlikely to be crowdwd out....
Definitely worth a look if you decide to head out that way...

Regards, Ed. C.

Thanks Ed,
Unfortunately I am not equipped for camping, fishing etc this trip , but i will keep it in mind for next time, don't mind a pot of yabbies over the fire.

I will be looking to stay in a van or cabin and just touring around a bit taking in the sights.

The Green Mountain? Only a short trip from Gold Coast, nice winding road up to O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat, loads of wildlife up there and treetop walk? Been there three times, really liked it.

Fraser Island is worth a look if you've not done that before.

Jondaryan Woolshed just west of Toowoomba on the road to Roma. Has sheep shearing displays and lots of old gear on display. Has guided tours included in the not too cheap admission price.

Not sure 15yo would take to it but worth a try. need to leave early to get the morning session which I recall is 9:30 am. You can also get lunch there.
