Laidley Valley Drive
LAIDLEY, QLD 4341
If scenic lookouts, panoramic views and picnic spots by crystal-clear creeks are for you, a visit to Laidley Valley Drive is a must.
The picturesque route follows Laidley Creek through some of Australia's most fertile farming land, bordered to the east by the Little Liverpool Range and to the west by the Mistake Mountains. During the wet season, the mountain slopes are covered in waterfalls, and creeks flow over several fords along the road. Camping is available at Centenary Park in Thornton.
Directions: Head south from Laidley along Patrick St to Lions Park and Narda Lagoon; follow the signs to Mulgowie then to Thornton; continue towards Mt Mistake and Townson at the end of the valley, where Crosby Park has picnic facilities alongside Laidley Creek. For an alternative route on the return journey to Laidley, turn left into Beckman Rd just before the Mulgowie Hotel, then turn right into Laidley Creek West Rd.
