Has any one travelled from Mudgeeraba to Cameron Corner trying to follow the Qld/Nsw border?

Towns I sort of figured out we'd go through would be :

Mudgeeraba - Tamborine the back way through the mountains...
Beaudesert
down the N.E hwy to Warwick
Stanthorpe
Glenlyon - Silverspurs to get to..
Texas
Gundi (Goondiwindi)
Carnarvon hwy to St. George
Balonne hwy up to Cunnamulla
Eulo
turn left go to Terramia (station???)
right to Wanaaring\thurn left 79km to go to reola station (really wanna go to)
then onto Tib and Cameron Corner....

I know the closer we get into corner region lpg is going to be unavailable but how far in does it dwindle....we should be safe at cunnamulla shouldnt we??

and after cunnamulla how many places would have petrol???

any help or other alternatives??

would love to go to texas for the fun of it but not neccessary.....gundi we can miss - been there - but would really like to try to get to Reola Station....

If you're following the border, why not start at Pt Danger, past the airport, through Tugan, along Currumbin Creek Road , Tomewin Road and out that way. You'll be very close to the border, having to cross it several times :))

I think I'm on the same track as the other post...down to Mt Warning NP then to Kyogle up to Wiangaree then Woodenbong link up with the Mt Lindsay Highway which takes you down past Girraween and Bald Rock...these are all great drives...beautiful scenery. Follow the Bruxner Highway to Texas..this follows the border then on Yelarbon to Goondiwindi. If you want to keep following the border go Goondi to Mungindi then up to Thallon, across to Dirranbandi then north west to Bollon and the Balonne Highway. This is a bit meandering but if you want to follow the border it's a great drive..

When you get to Cunnamulla you go out to Eulo, down to Hungerford through Currawinya NP then down (you pass Terramie stn here) to Wanaaring. I've been on these roads a few times and no problems...you have to open the gate at Hungerford to leave Queensland!! I've been on the road past Reola Station and its fine.
Eulo, Hungerford and Wanaaring have petrol as does Tibooburra and the Corner Store

The Mt Lindsay Highway joins Tenterfield to near Killarney which is just south of Warwick
Perhaps I got a little carried away with going all the way down to Kyogle..just that it's so lovely a drive but it probably takes you too low under the border. You could just get to Beaudesert like you said originally then you would go south to Rathdowney and that would take you to Woodenbong and then onto the Mt Lindsay Highway a bit further on. Then you could follow it down through Bald Rock NP etc and hug the border to Texas.
Tenterfield and Goondiwindi would have LPG as they are such big places.
It's about 195-200 from Beaudesert to Tenterfield.
From there onwards I don't know about lpg. An idea might be to find phone numbers for some of these little places...service stations, stores, police stations, shire offices, caravan parks etc...just a contact number...phone them and ask. They live in the towns so they'll know what's available there.

Laura,

I've got a phone number for the Tourist Information place at Cunnamulla. If you would like it I will send a member message, cos don't know if we're supposed to put phone numbers on the forum.

All the best...

With the gate at Hungerford, I've never worked out if they are trying to keep us southerners out or just not letting any Queenslanders escape!! No, really, there's something adventurous about actually having to open the gate to get in/out. It's a bit like crossing grids that are real and not just painted lines on the road!! That thud thud of the grid means "we're really outback"!!

Murwillumbah to Kyogle and Casino is a scenic and relatively easy drive. All fuels at those places. Making your way west you should have no worries but check first. 240Km ...I'm still wriggling my bottom to get comfy at 240K. At around 1240km I start looking for diesel LOL I can remember chasing petrol years ago on the Plenty...thats why I bought a dirty, slow , environmentally unfriendly etc diesel...best tourers I have ever owned.

It really is a lovely part of the world up there. The Lion's Road is another great and interesting drive.. I was surprised to find it all sealed this year. That border loop is amazing!! Would love to be there to see a train go around it.

Im feeling extremelylost now that we are doing the trip backwards!! im all confused and not sure what im doing - oh hang on thats normal!!!LOL

Laura,

You haven't mentioned it but are you taking jerry cans for back up fuel? I've just read that you can get fuel at Tobermorey and Jervois Stations on the Plenty so you should be able to top up at those places. If you have full petrol tank and full jerry cans when you leave Boulia then you should be fine. It's 249km to Tobermorey, 219km to Jervois then about another 350km to Alice if you go in via Arltunga and Ross River.

Hi Laura,

Just double checked and put "fuel Tobermorey" into google and came up with a few sites....they all say that you can get ulp and diesel at Tobermorey, but I think it's cash only.

Nowhere out there can help you with gas though so looks like you'll have to rely on petrol.

Laura,

You can get gas at Bourke...so if you didn't go to St George or Cunnamulla or Eulo but went from Goondiwindi to Walgett then across to Bourke would that help you? From Bourke you could head west to Wanaaring and then to Reola Station and on to Tibooburra. Bourke is still a long way from Alice but it's closer than St George!!

for normal undies:

right way front - winter - needs to be comfy so that you can sit still under the blankets comfortably
right way backwards - spring - your starting to be on the mov again..so you dont notice as much
inside out front ways - summer - hot time of the year so needs to be comfy
inside out backwards- Autumn - same as spring!!

for the female fancy type there are only 2 options!!!
right way front
inside out front

OOOOHHHHHH

Funnyfunny and its not even friday........

no....

hang on......

maybe swap winter and summer around......!!! LOL !!!

Laura,

Changing your undies that way will give you 4 days.

I get 8 days

After the 4th day you swap your undies with a family member or close friend.

I've always had a fondness for those sexy, black, lacy, skimpy, G string types....

But since I put some weight on I just can't get into them any longer.
