Stanage Bay

Went up to Rocky for Xmas and met up with e few mates for a ride. Left from Gracemere, then through Fairybower and some other roads I can't remember the name of to Ridgelands Rd. Crossed the Fitzroy river at Glenroy and through to Marlborough. On to Stanage Bay for the night. Back out to the highway and detour through Rossmoya and Hedlow Creek and then back to Rocky again.

It was fun indeed. I spent the first 35 years of my life around there and only been to Stanage a couple of times and never to Hedlow Creek before.

Cheers!

we did a similar thing over Christmas though drove with the family up to Rockhampton from Wollongong. Ended up doing about 60% dirt on the way up via Crookwell, Barry, Ophir, Coonabarabran, Collerannabri, Lightning Ridge, St George, Roma & Duaringa before heading into Rocky. We kept of the highways & used gazetted public access through propeties for a good look around. Was great to have a look around, just a pity I was in the Pajero & not on the DR.

We were planning a few nights camping up in Byfield but as they had had no rain for so long the waterholes were offlimits due to algae etc so we didn't get up there. I do recognise the pics from around Hedlow creek as we went for a drive out around Lake Mary, very nice area & some nice camping spots along the creek.
