North Yabbra Forest Loop Road
There is another forestry road which leads to Urbenville from the eastern side of town. Head south-east (the road is unsealed after 2 km) through rainforest and moist and dry hardwood forest, past another of the area’s volcanic plugs, known as Edinborough Castle.

About 10 km north-east of Woodenbong, along the Mt Lindesay Rd to Beaudesert, is Mt Lindesay. A remarkable mountain it belongs to the MacPherson Range which is part of the state border. This is a popular spot with those keen on an arduous mountain trek. The last section is definitely for abseilers only.
