Jules,

There's also a lodge or resort there which offers various grades of accomodation from luxury to camping. Try a Mt Barney search.

Hi,
It's the second highest mountain in Qld, tried to climb it about 5 years ago took a wrong track & nearly fell of a thousand foot cliff, don't try to climb it in summer as you can't carry enough water & there is not any at the summit. It was first scaled in about 1836 by Captain Logan.

Jules,

Mt. Barney (and neighbouring Mt. Lindsey) are places to be avoided (if bushwalking) in the summer heat. Mt. Barney is the second highest peak in SE Qld - and has many routes to the top. The 'easiest' - sometimes called Peasants Ridge by locals due to its ease of access - is the Southern Ridge. This is a 12 hour walk for most average walkers! There is no water available on either of these summits - and both have climbing routes on them (the summit of Mt. Lindsey can only be reached via a climb - ropes and climbing gear required for most climbing parties).

There is a great swimming area at lower portals - but this is far from the summit. If walking in summer - take at least 3 litres of water with you. If not familiar with the area - don't attempt the summit in the summer heat.

Other than that - its a nice enough spot - part of the ranges that radiate out from the Mt. Warning shield volcano area (and part of the scenic rim). Pretty country.

Cheers,
Prado Boy
