Thumb Kilcoy to Hervey Bay via "The Big Chimney"

The scene was set I had to be in the Bay for family stuff on Sunday and the misses had a softball double header Saturday and Sunday morning and Monday was a holiday in this part of the world So I get to head to the hills and she drives up in the work van and we both come back together on Monday. Brilliant

Soooooooo I'm off to Linville then



Time for a break , spose this will do.



Chucked a right to Elgin Vale, Manumbar up towards Jimmy's Scrub





Went right on Coolamar Rd then followed by nose and headed North



It's looking good now



Let's go for a climb and check the view



Nothing to see here



Heading back down to see what's in the valley



Ah yes here it is "The Big Chimney" at Mt Clara. The Chinese built it so they could make all the gold medals........ true story.



Kilkivan for fuel and food done 200k's nice



Back east to opposite Rossmore Rd (Big Chimney) is Cullen Ave followed that and turned right on Running Ck Rd great dirt roads round here with a couple of water crossings just for fun.



Left on Woolooga Rd then 17 k's north right at Akuna Rd and you are here.



Left on Glenbar-Tairo Rd then right towards Aramara. Across the main drag and into the state forest where a change of surface was welcomed .



Apparantly



Think I'll set up camp and lick my wounds. Done about 360 k's .
Wongi Rec area, self registration $5.00 sweeeeet.



Morning has broken . Never get tired of this...!



Threw a surface popper around and hey.......33cm bass...too bad I already had breakfast cooked ....!



yummy yummy



hmmmmm let's check the map Lenthalls dam for a look ? yeah why not.



Pity the lift was out of order ...would have been a great view.





Full as a goog.



that's gunna hurt .



Need to find some more dirt. Crossed the Bruce Hwy and followed railway south towards Maryborough.





hey wait for me......



Blacktopped it from here to Hervey Bay so my adventure was over

or not !



Hit the inlaws for a Sunday family roast



Then loaded up Monday back to Kilcoy.



My job is done ! Can't wait for next weekend
