The Condamine has some of the most scenic 4wding this close to Brisbane, following the gorge crossing the Condamine River 14 times. There are some excellent camping sites and some water holes that make for an amazing day out for the entire family. The terrain will differ from mud 4x4ing to testing your 4wd in some amazing river crossings.
We here at 4wdlife rate the Condamine an absolute must for any novice 4wder wanting to try some basic river crossings or test his new set of tyres in some mud terrain style driving. For the entire duration of this track you actually get to drive through the gorge crossing the Condamine River 14 times. These river crossings are so good for the novice 4wder as they all have a hard rocky base and can be driven in low range with ease and care.
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 Condamine can never be done too many times there is always something more to see and do, the abundance of wildlife and some of the most amazing backdrops you will find 4wding makes it an absolute must. v We recently made a trip out here after a week of rain and the track was muddy so make sure you check the weather before attempting this track, or travel with other keen 4x4s just like us, and always take the appropriate recovery gear. There is no need to give to much details as where to go once on the Condamine River Road as there is no alternate routes once on, it simply follows the gorge along the river and out to Killarney.
If river crossings Mud 4wding and scenery is what interests you then you cannot go wrong with the Condamine Track. This Track simply has it all some of the most amazing scenery, mud to easy driving and an abundance of swimming holes for the kids.
