This was an easy and pleasant walk thru the forest along the river. We saw a wallaby near the camp ground and lots of ants else where.

Nice walk with a good view at the top. Walking trail all the way to the top so good for beginners who are reasonably fit.

We drove across from Chinchilla taking only dirt roads through the Barakula State forest on this day. It was a good drive topped off with some walking and a great swimming hole.
