Information

A plane crash which lay hidden in the Australian bush wasn't discovered for nearly 50 years is the short backstory to the Beautiful Betsy walk in Kroombit Tops National Park.

It sounds like something out of a film but it's true - Beautiful Betsy is the remains of a World War II Liberator Bomber aircraft which lay hidden and lost in the Kroombit Tops underbrush until a ranger saw a glint of silver after a backburn and discovered it in 1994.

This walk enables you to learn about the bomber, its occupants who lost their lives and it's tragic end and view the wreckage which has been a permanent fixture in the landscape since its' tragic collision in 1945.

Most of this park is unsealed road suitable only for four-wheel drives so make sure you check out the National Park map before setting off.
