South Kobble bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park Bush Camps)
2 Feb, 2020
Very Hard
10km
6 hrs
a more direct return is to go up the creek for about 10 min from the camp. just after a big flat left creek branch, go up the long spur heading SW. there's a path on either side of a ditch that runs the whole way up the spur. gradually heading more west you reach a knoll, height not marked on the map but 675m. from here there's a good path west that comes out 50m past the lepidozamia locked gate. this knoll is a common marker point for walks in the 1990s people's guide to SE qld bushwalks. eg. a path south from the knoll comes to a cairn where there's a path left to the piper comanche wreck. to avoid lantana when approaching the 675m knoll from south kobble, try to intercept an old cut logging track that runs just north of the knoll. but even if you get distracted by pig tracks and end up in some lantana it's not too bad. just head for the 675m knoll. i've done this route a few times. it makes south kobble bush camp into a nice circuit walk.

The path NE from the 560 knoll is definitely better. After the saddle head east. Follow the ridge that gradually bends south, to meet the creek directly at the bushcamp. Stay on the crest of this spur all the way down. If you head south too early you end up in lantana. The correct (if you want an easy day) more easterly ridge is fairly open. If you end up in lantana, the feeder creek running SE to meet S kobbold creek at the bushcamp is also an OK route if it’s dry. The camp is on the north bank of S kobbold creek, just east of a small cliff. It’s a nice spot. About 2h each way.
As these are all old logging paths, look out for old sawn tree stumps as indicators that you’re going the right way. The pink tape is less useful - more like annoying litter. The path is easy to follow for most of the way.

If you go in via the north loop, note that AS0372 is wrongly marked on the topographic map. It is just before the north kobble break turnoff, not afterwards. Otherwise well maintained paths and easy to navigate with the map from the walkabout creek information centre.

There is now a bulldozed track all the way that is easy to follow.
England Creek bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park Bush Camps)

The cross-country route described in South-East Queensland walks (with a variation on this site) was overgrown with lantana and lawyer vine. Similarly rock-hopping up the creek, it was tricky at the waterfalls and a way out of the creek was very hard to find due to thick undergrowth. It was better to stick to the Joyner's ridge / England creek / Lawton road circuit - a bit tedious but well-maintained.
