I think it's called the Crown? Has anyone been there and if so what was it like? A couple of us are planning an Autumn day trip and seems like a good day ride.

Yes, it's the Crown Hotel, an old school pub and if you plan on eating there ring them to see if they are cookin' on the day you go. The kitchen was closed on the day we rode there. The Woodenbong pub is a better bet for food.

Woodenbongs are always better before food.

Posted this on the old site did a reconitor before the main ride.
( shame i didnt ask about the intended weekend):oops:


So what cracker of a day it was for a ride! Blue skies 20 something degrees, all right with the world...headed out and had a top adventure, a truly memorable day.

Left home bit before eight it was a little cool over glorious, the bikes were parked solid outside the cafe and it look rather packed, decided not to stop as when it looks like that it can be a hour for coffee...
Had a solid blast to yamanto maccas instead...

For a Ride day Im sure the locals can shepherd us around the ipswich CBD, or something more interesting the road to Boonah a bit of a transport too, smooth open road, some traffic.

Somehow I missed the Mt Alford turn off outside Boonah, used Ganthorpe rd to Mt Alford rather than back track.. Onto Carneys creek road not a bad road some nice sweepers there... Now the downside Head road is closed after the turn off on carneys creek rd.. Apparently a land slip back in the big wet.. the sign optimistly says it will reopen in August, but somehow I doubt that...

Of course now I reliase I have left my maps at home... The other branch of the intersection the sign says it goes to white swamp, decide to see what thats about, the twin lane became single lane and soon turned to a smooth gravel road, winding its way though the hills, farms and cows. As we rollled deeper and deeper into this country, without a map or any reference, got not really lost but not really knowing either. I not totaly sure exactly were we went but, was on the dirt for over a hour, no drama and enjoyed the exploring crossed the border a couple of times, several creeks , grids and cows, and wound up in the Koreela National park, All very scenic.

Popped out on SpringCreek road (Original intended route) That part of it is a absolute ripper road (especially after the dirt) as is the Killarny Warick road and Mt Lindsay road to the Tooloom road turn off. Tooloom road was a great road once upon a time... While it has some very interesting twists and turns its as rough as guts, not really pot holed but rather its rutted wooped and sagged from subsidence. not a scratchers road by any stretch...

Got to urbanville pub around 1.30pm still in time for Lunch. Theres Homemade burgers and Pizzas on the menu.
I rate the lunch 7 out of 10 hungry sidecarists, nothing wrong with the food, just maybe a little plain, friendly place, reasonbly priced. as glad for the cold beer.(light) The Urbanville conveinience store was open and and all good, except no petrol all the pumps were "Out of Order" 12 ks to WoodenBong, got there on the fumes, of the fumes, that were left over from reserve..

No doubt about it, the Mt Lindsay twistys are a hoot!

Got home about 5pm, the traffic from Jimboomba and across brissy was a drag, however it didnt taint such a top ride...
