Barney gorge junction remote bush camp to Yamahra creek camp

There are two ways to do this walk. The first one is to hike back up to the top of the ridge and follow it along to reach Yamahra creek camp. The second way which is the way we went was to follow the creek and rock hop your way, there are some pros and cons to this as the views are amazing and the scenery spectacular, there are some sections which are a bit challenging as they require some small rock climbing skills and are made more difficult if your carrying a large pack. Before you get to the upper portals you have to break track back up the ridge to your right as you cant get around the portals. From there you follow the track over the ridge and down the other side and descend to the Yamahra creek campsite. this campsite is close to running water in the creek, as you walk towards the creek take the left turn and water is about 200m away.

Mt Clunie

This is one for the "peak-baggers" and those who want to test there fitness. Mt Clunie is one of the high mountains (1158m) on the Qld/NSW border and the walk involves one of the tougher ascents in South-East Qld (described as "incredibly steep" in the Bushpeople's Guide, and they aren't joking). The walk begins at the border gate on the Carneys Creek Rd (this becomes White Swamp Rd once it crosses into NSW) and follows the border fence all the way up to the summit. The first few kilometres of the walk, in a roughly Southerly direction, is through undulating terrain in open eucalypt forest, and although there are some steep sections, it isn't too difficult. However, about an hour into the walk, a steel fence is crossed, the vegetation begins to change to rainforest, and the very steep section commences. At this point is is very handy to wear tough gloves, in order to drag yourself up the fence, and wear long sleeves and pants/gators, to battle through some areas of blackberry. A few hundred metres from the summit, the track levels, and there are some picturesque rock formations on the Qld side of the fence. In some sections, it is best to climb over the fence for easier travel. The summit is marked by a cairn, but there are no views to speak of, apart from occasional glimpses of Wilson's Peak to the North-West. You will make up some time on the return trip, but in parts, it's almost necessary to slide back down!

The area is an important spiritual site to the Aranda Aboriginal people, where several dreaming trails and stories cross.
