Follow Spring Creek Mountain Road east past the Falls to Carr’s Lookout. Get out and admire the view over the bluff. The road goes down to Boonah. But it is challenging. In some parts it is one lane. The road goes past the White Swamp turnoff. The White Swamp Road is gravel and can be a bit rough. It can be used as a detour when work is being done on the Head Road. The name comes from the head of the Condamine River which is near Wilson’s Peak AKA Jirrumon. Travel through Carney’s Creek and Mt Alford to Boonah. Scenic Rim Council is planning a road closure of the road at Carney’s Creek due to much needed guard rail repairs. But they are waiting on White Swamp Road detour to be open.
