Kroombit Tops National Park

Off-road adventures begin at Kroombit Tops, near Biloela. This is the domain of the hardened all-terrain traveller who thrives on a challenge and isn’t afraid to take on the rough stuff.

How to get to Kroombit Tops National Park

If you’re in a conventional car or towing a trailer or caravan, you’ll need to access the park via Ubobo via the Dawson Highway near Calliope. The route takes you 70 km along unsealed roads to the Griffith Creek camp site.

Only suitable in dry conditions and to 4WD, traversing the park via the Razorback Track and Loop Road will take you across rivers and deep ravines to fantastic heights where the sites and hikes are in the midst of wild country. These tracks less travelled are best left to experienced drivers with high clearance vehicles. Please see current Park Alert regarding Rough access conditions.

There are picturesque picnic spots by the creek and it’s an easy 100 m walk to the lookout with fantastic views of the Boyne Valley.

Park features

  • The 1945 crash site of Beautiful Betsy, the ill-fated WWII Liberator bomber. Access to the Bomber site is via a new 3.2km return walking track that starts at the Wall Day Use Area. High-clearance 4WD vehicle required. The old walking track and access road is now closed.
  • Marble Waterhole on the Razorback Track. High-clearance 4WD vehicle required.
