Took longer than I thought, but you're a local.

Sunday 9.30am there was no snow.
This photo taken around 4.30pm.

Heavy snow on the ground, road all the way to north of Yarrangobilly Caves entrance road.
Snow on ground to the top of Talbingo Mountain.

And I think the weather was getting worse overnight.


The answer is "No". I was in a bus with a bunch of Scouts.

Never been further north than Lower South Burnett, so I've got nothing.

Then down a long slope where it's only about 4-6" deep, then a flat for a few hundred metres, where it sort of reduces in density and depth. Not that it affords any more traction. I suppose I was very fortunate that it was on the flat that the front and rear decided on swapping and I ended up on my side.

In the list it's bridge F.


What's the name of the property, Gra? I've forgotten. Fitzgerald's or similar? Probably not.

Probably get time to do a rr for the ride tonight, then I'm away for 10 days.

And Gra' made a wise choice not to ride his Bonnie down thro' the farm. I couldn't imagine what it would've done to the chrome. Should've smelt it! My garage still reeks of shit.

Anyway.
Property name is Brentwood Park. The bridge is about 3 mile upstream of the junction of Swampy Plains River (from Khancoban), and the Murray River (from up Biggara way).
The cablework in the foreground is the original people/goods trolley xing for when the track-natural riverbed crossing about 300 yards downstream was too deep to ford.

Mr Findlay (I think) is the property owner. He also rides a serious trailbike for more than chasing cows! as there is some steep riding country in that area.

Hmm, back to Scray bridges...

Bridge D
Old Tallangatta?

Bridge G
One of the floodplain bridges of the Tooma River near (east of) a property called Pinegrove, located on a back-road of sorts between your earlier photo of Bringengbrong Bdge and Tooma.

Geez. I thought that was over. What page was it on. I'll have to go back & do some scoring!
Don't hold your breath.

I do now.





The entrance to Mt Woowoonga Wilderness Area.



I went for a ride yesterday while I am on Holidays and I came flying around the corner on the way up to the shelter shed to top up my camelback. I saw the blue sign out the corner of my eye and recognised it from this thread so I stopped for a pic on the way back out. I'd been in there before but hadn't noticed the sign before.

OK, my turn.

Same sort of area as Woopwoop's but a bit further into the scrub.

Who knows where this cutting is and who made it?

Well, I think I might. By sheer coincidence ADV inmate Oldmanmuzz gave me a National Trail Guidebook (section 5, Biggenden to Blackbutt) this arvo. I flicked through it when I got home, logged on to ADV, saw your post and thought "Hang on, I wonder if that's the bit I just happened to read in that book?". So, is it a couple of K's east-north-east of Broomfield, a few K's from Agnes Vale Homestead? I don't know who made the cutting, but it's on the original old coach road that once ran from Maryborough-Gayndah. The timber ramp thing at the top was used to load gravel onto trucks. These ramps were for some reason referred to as "Chinamen"

If it seems a bit like cheating, Murray and I were through there Sunday before last. And if I'm wrong, then at least I'm wrong in a highly detailed fashion.

Close enough.

It could be the right spot but I'm not exactly sure as to its relationship to Broomfield or Agnes Vale homestead but it is on the National Trail. It is the Sea View Range cutting that was apparently made by a chain gang in the 1860's. Just out the back of Fairlies' Knob that we were chatting about the other day. I came through here on my way back home from Mt Woowoonga yesterday. From memory I took the Golden Fleece Rd from Biggenden past the B&B and then just followed my nose (and GPS) through the forestry tracks.

Yeah, that's the place because the cutting in the guidebook is in the Seaview Range. What a coincidence that I was just reading about it this afternoon!

Considering it's all pretty rough country and pretty sparsely populated these days, that whole area has a pretty rich history. Musket Flat was a thriving town complete with Blacksmiths, Hotel etc about 150 years ago. It died out pretty quick when the rail line went through further south. There's even a story about a long lost "kettle of gold" hidden in the bush somewhere a few miles to the north.

I might have to try and find a copy of that guidebook. I am trying to plan a ride through that area for a biggish ADV ride later in the year.
