the world's most spectacular roads

Condamine River Road is a spectacular drive near Killarney in southern Queensland, Australia. With a length of 20,7km only, this track crosses the Condamine River 14 times.

Condamine River Road winds through the Cambanoora Gorge. The surface of the road is gravel and sand, but it crosses the same river 14 times. It was used to carry supplies and mail to early settlers along the length of the gorge, and to bring timber to the railway in Killarney.

 

The road is suitable for high clearance vehicles only. This track is easy and would be great for a beginner four wheel driver. During normal conditions the crossings of the Condamine River are relatively shallow. However, during wet weather the river will rise rapidly making it impassable. It is advisable to check conditions with the Warwick Visitor Information Centre prior to visiting.

 

The road is subject to flooding. There are indicators showing the depth. The water levels generally will sit just below the steps on your stock standard 4x4, however the Condamine is weather dependent and the river can rise rapidly.

 

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! It has amazing views, lots of wild life and a relaxed environment as you explore the beautiful rocky creek beds and tall eucalyptus trees.
