Beaury 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 17 km from Woodenbong turn right back on to the sealed road which leads to Urbenville. This road takes you through Yabbra Flora Reserve where there is a picnic area and walking track.
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 assailers only.
The main link from the North-East at Rathdowney Qld on the Mt Lindesay Highway is the access to Queen Mary Falls, and associated waterfalls at Killarney, Qld, 50km North-West of Woodenbong, known as part of the Scenic Rim.
The Scenic Rim is a group of mountain ranges of the Great Dividing Range in South East Queensland, The mountainous landscape forms a quarter circle ridge positioned roughly from south of Toowoomba around to Springbrook.
Tamborine Mountain, Lever’s Plateau in New South Wales and the Lamington Plateau are part of the rim formation. Much of the scenic rim is considered part of the Gold Coast hinterland and originates from the Tweed Volcano.
