Driving Directions

Proceed to waypoint on Mirani-Mt Ossa Road, 15km south-west of Bruce Highway Junction. At waypoint turn north-west onto Calen-Mt Charlton Road (dirt road) and continue for approx 2km. Just past sharp L turn on R.

Boulder Creek Rest Area is a little piece of paradise. Fresh running water from the creek. Toilet cleaned by volunteers regularly. Friendly folk. Explore the Pioneer Valley from here.
Most of the camping area is now fenced off. Still plenty of area 50m down the road to pull off and camp, just not as level. This is on a very quiet road.

Just beautiful. Dump point at Mirani just 20 to 30min drive toward Mackay. Stay time limit 3 weeks. Mackay is a 50min drive via the scenic road.

It is a bit off the beaten track, just 2km north of the little farming community of Mt Charlton. Accessible for all rigs. Plenty of shade here.

Please use a bucket to catch any grey water to help keep the creek happy and there are no bins so you must take your rubbish with you.

Can get very busy here, and popular with the backpackers. Good clean toilet.
