The first 4km of this road is bitumen and it then becomes a good gravel road. 3.8km after the start of the gravel, take the right hand fork at a junction and travel a further 7km to the assembly area on Forestry Road. Allow 45 mins traveling time from Warwick.
From Stanthorpe, take the New England Highway north to Warwick and at the first set of traffic lights (the intersection with the Cunningham Highway), turn left and follow the directions as above.
