Hi, does anyone know of a good 4wdriving place to goto which isn't too far from Brisbane for a day trip ( with children). Must also have a creek or some water to swim in. Thanks, Troys Wife.

Beach north end of Bribie Island - permit required. Check tides.
Forrest tracks around Jimna. Check out Peach Tree, good camping spot to check out but maybe not much water at the moment. Landcruser park close by.

RegardsThis 4WD stuff is addictive,
time consuming & expensive.

Condamine Gorge. Not sure on water level at moment but there's heaps of crossings. Easy driving. Scenic area. You can find it on a RACQ map. Look for Killarney - it's in that area.

Sundown nat'l park - Red Rock George & Girraween out back of Stanthorpe It's not called the Granite Belt for nothing! Loads of tracks at all levels, plenty of creeks/water holes/waterfalls/lakes/rivers and kids love it. Old mines, spectacular views, wildlife, brilliant trip. Go for a weekend and do wineries as well. If you don't want to camp in national park, there are plenty of camp grounds with facilities in the area. Straddie is also a great trip, but not much of a challenge, since they closed the trig station track. Beautiful place though and worth a weekend. See if you can find a public dunny with a view. Fresh water in land at one of the lakes (blue lake-4wd, brown lake 2wd). there is also a turn in about 5k down from Main beach entry that lets you into a nice little lake and desert area, generated by the overflow of the sand mines. (shh, its a secret) Good fishing gutter out front too and bait on beach.
