    Hi DUCK72,

    If you havn't got it in your library already, get yourself a copy of..
    'TAKE A WALK in South East Queensland' by John & Lyn Daly.
    Covers a lot of maintained & off the beaten track walks.

    Page 261 & 258 are ones you need for the info to this area.

    Take roughly 5hrs to get there, can be done in a long day trip
    but way better off as an overnighter to take in the fading sunset &
    the misty morning sunrise.
    Dehydration is an issue so take plenty of water.
    Its not a walk in the park, research the area. Main Range National Park,
    Goomburra section.
    http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/parks/main-range/index.html

    Also a bit more info in this forum too....
    http://bushwalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=7035

    You'll also need map Townsend 25,000 series

    The route....Sylvesters lookout- Laidley falls- Hole in the wall- Boars Head- Mt Castle
    Extract


    Google Earth gives you a rough idea of the terrain.....


    Hope that helps.....if you need any more info, give me a PM.
    Cheers,
    Ofuros

    Great views, and a great spot to hang

    Thanks for taking us along
    Life's A Journey
    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    I can see why that could be your favorite walk! wow, it reminds me of our (Arizona's) Mogollon Rim, dare I say with a better view.
    happy solstice!

    Great shots of a great spot. Dragon's Spine is aptly named. Thanks for sharing the pics.
