Getting there

From the park boundary at Forestry Road, Mount Nebo, the campsite is accessed by walking 1.7km along Light Line Road. Forestry Road is a 25-minute drive from Walkabout Creek in The Gap.



Route/Trail notes

The track is good, an old 4WD track, so no problems there. Some small loose rocks here and there but all in all a good track. Easy for beginners to experienced.

Walked in from South boundary road, then onto Township Break.
Stopped for lunch at the creek on Township break and explored the creek. Was a challenging walk along township break. recommend walking poles.
Camp was nice on top of the ridge. Good to have a table and shelter to use.
Walked out the next day along light line road, onto forestry road (paved road), the used taylors break to get onto double break. Nice uphill climb to the mount Nebo waste transfer station.
To do this loop does require a car shuttle. Nice loop walk for a camping weekend away close to Brisbane

Misunderstood the directions so nearly didn’t find the walk. I didn’t realise you could drive along light line road but easy to find once I realised that. Nice easy walk.

Nice Place.
I decided to try a much harder way in VIA TWP break.
see it on my u tube channel gizmos adventures.
Twp break was tough for me.
well worth the effort though

13 Km loop through Taylors Break and up Job 6 to the bush camp. Nice easy walk but not a remote bush camp, only few km from town.

The walk to Lightline bush camp was interesting today. Saw a massive python at the beginning of the track. Then approx 500m down the track was a scrub turkey going about its business before I interrupted it. Numerous lizzards scurring around. Some beautiful parrots just added to the beauty of nature.
When I reached the bush campsite the fire pit has been removed. I'm not sure why? I dug a small hole in the ground and setup my fire. The coffee didn't take long and soon after that I put my noodles on.
What a great afternoon. Eating my lunch and in the distance I cold see F-111's and F/A 18 Hornets flying around. Tried out some new gear, a good walk.
And on the way back the python was still there. I guess if your THAT big you don't have much to worry about ! (At the widest approx 20cms)

As always a good track. I always enjoy the campsite there with a great fire pit and storm shelter and water if you need it.

Did this walk and great to get to the shelter there and have some lunch. There is a water tank there. Use a last resort and boil water before drinking.

A great walk to the shelter.
