Kingaroy to Yarraman

This section of the route follows “The Link” route. “The Link” route is fully signposted and is once again a mixture of bitumen and gravel roads, with minimal traffic. There are some amazing views from West Coolabunia and Semgreens Roads looking Southeast towards the Power Station. Simply follow the signs into Nanango. Nanango is a vibrant country town with much to offer the visitor. Like Kingaroy, there are numerous places to stay and eat, including quite a good bakery.

Leaving Nanango, you continue to follow “The Link” route which continues to be signposted. At the Old Yarraman grid crossing turn right and head towards Beitzel Road at the D’Aguilar Highway crossing. You can continue straight ahead along “The Link” if you wish. Just be aware that the 2km section on either side of Yarraman Creek can get quite rough.

Once you cross the D’Aguilar highway you start the climb onto the ridge behind Yarraman. From the high ridge wonderful views abound. After turning left into Reeve Road, you will start to descend into the pine forestry surrounding Yarraman. From here on it the road is gravel. If there has been rain, be aware that this section can get quite sticky if wet. The route takes you through pine forestry and you exit this very close to the Yarraman Caravan Park at the top of the hill entering Yarraman. There are multiple options for accommodation either at the caravan park, motel, or hotels.

At the T intersection of the forestry road and the main D’Aguilar Highway, look to your right, there is a singletrack above the level of the highway on the adjacent nature strip. This track takes you through to the Yarraman Caravan Park entrance. Once at the Yarraman Caravan Park entrance follow the Hill Trail marked in Yellow with blue dots on the map. This will assist riders in avoiding taking the main highway into town.
