I am going to longreach in a few weeks and would like to see some sites on the way back. I have a 4x4 and have about 3-4 days to get back to brisbane. Fishing spots would also be appreciated. My prefered route is through central QLD.

There is a good free campsite at Lloyd Jones Weir which lies 14km south of Barcaldine. Could even catch a Yella-belly there in the Alice River. Visit the Jackie Howe Museum at Blackall. Drop in to the Teddy Bear Factory at Tambo. Spend a day at Caranarvon Gorge and enjoy some spectacular canyon walks. Or relax at the Hot Springs at Mitchell where the first 2 nights camping are free at the Council Caravan Park. Just some ideas. Happy travellingCheers, Willem

Jericho up from Blackall is something special. Was the end of the Cobb & Co run and has heaps of interesting things. Great feed at the pub and my tour passengers always love Jericho. There is nowhere in Australia like Jericho. You have not travelled if you have not been to Jericho.

The way to go to Jericho would be from Barcaldine to Jericho and then to Blackall.
The Blackall Adavale road is something different as well. Do not do it if it is bucketing rain you will be well bogged. Much of interest along that road and again, a bit off the beaten track without being to adventurous and you will see other traffic on that road. I take the tour bus down that road as long as it is not raining.

Paul,

Some specatular country around Springsure too. Think there is a Nat. Park or two near there. Blackbutt(?) Nat. Park near Bluff would be worth a look, an escarpment like you'd see in Kakadu. Looks good from Capricorn Hwy. Highway from Theodore to Taroom, then Miles has some good scenery. Hooroo...

Thanks everyone - sounds like 4 days isn't enough. Should be a good start though.
