Coomba Waterhole, Maidenwell and Harland Park, near Yarraman, QLD.

On our way from Bunya Mountains National Park to Jimna State Forest we stopped off at a couple of places of interest.

Coomba Falls
Coomba Falls
Coomba Falls is 2 km east of Maidenwell along Coomba Waterhole Road. The road drops steeply and is signposted not suitable for caravans. There are bins at the car park but unfortunately there are no picnic tables or toilets. There is a constructed stairway down to the waterhole. 

Looking back up the stairs.
The waterfall was not running when we were there due to prolonged dry weather but the waterhole was still worth the visit.

It is possible to camp in Maidenwell at either the Maidenwell Hotel or the Maidenwell Recreation Ground. We have not, as yet, camped at either place but they both have reputations as being excellent places to camp. Caravaners find Maidenwell a handy place to leave their vans while they explore Coomba Falls and Bunya Mountains National Park.

Harland Park
Harland Park
Harland Park is 6 km east of Yarraman on the D'Aguilar Highway. Free, overnight camping is allowed here. It is a large grassy area between the highway and Cooyar Creek. There is a picnic shelter but no toilets. There is access to the Rail Trail from here.

"These waters have been stocked by local funds and support from the Queensland Government Fish Stocking Programme"
