......on interesting places to visit in Central Queensland, Central West Queensland, South East Queensland & The top portion of NSW. I am heading out over Christmas school holidays with a group of 4x4's on a 'don't care where we go excursion'. This excursion will be about 4 weeks long.
We will be heading out from Rockhampton (700km Nth of Brisbane) --> heading west to Longreach, (I want to do the QANTAS musium etc...) Then south from there.
After that, I have little to no idea on what we can do or see. Remember that we should be able to access most areas that require 4x4 vehicles.
Any imput would be appreicated, on what we could do to fill in 4 weeks on the road. This time will most likely go faster than we would like.

Thanks

oooopppssss

If this is operating at that time of year???....my suggestion is to book early if wanting to go on the Paddle boat one otherwise you may have to go on the other one (if places are available) which is not a paddle boat.

Give the Limestone Caves (formerly CAMOO Caves) approx 40 k's North of Rocky a try very interesting for the basic tour and challenging for the adventure trip if you are up too the challenge. Enjoy your trip!
