Goomburra Road,

This 62 kilometre journey starts at Goomburra Road, which is a turnoff the New England highway, just two minutes south of the small township of Allora, or 10 minutes north of Warwick. It is a gentle, meandering road which takes in the Goomburra Valley, past mountains and lush greenery, typical country scenery depicting dairy farms - large and small, and then across the Cunningham Highway to join on to Freestone Road. The quiet back road of Freestone Road offers a vista of some of the most fertile land in the district and a patchwork of oats, sorghum, wheat and sunflowers. As you travel through the township of Freestone, historic buildings, houses and a church are sights to slow down to see, before the route journeys back into Warwick, via Jack Smith Gully Road....

    Goomburra Valley

    On the way from Warwick to the turnoff to the Cedar Route, you will pass the historic Glengallan Homestead, which was built in 1867 and is a grand old building. After turning into Goomburra Road off the highway, a windy, easy drive will take in classic Australian and diverse landscapes, with the option of taking a turn up Inverramsay Road at Goomburra for 4WDing, national park hiking, walking or fishing - even an overnight stopover if equipped for camping or cabin stays. The Goomburra section of Main Range National Park is located 26 kilometres along Inverramsay Road. Goomburra Road meets the Cunningham Highway where the Cedar Route takes a right turn, then a left onto Freestone Road, where the journey meanders past farms, an array of fields including sunflowers in the summer, and some classic historic buildings such as the old railway store at Freestone - South Georgia - and The Freestone Hall, which still hosts good old fashioned country dances on occasion. Another point of interest along the route is Mt Dumaresq, which Explorer Alan Cunningham stood on top of and declared the Darling Downs - for as far as the eye can see.
