Please note the two alternative route (1km difference) to Mingo Crossing, straight via Byrnestown (unsealed) or turn towards Gooroolba (sealed). At Mingo Crossing pull off into the Road reserve on the opposite side of the bridge to Mingo Crossing Caravan Park and Recreational Area and enjoy spending time observing wildlife around the banks of the Burnett River and in the sounding bush land. Then turn back and head towards Coalstoun lakes via either Biggenden (sealed) or Gooroolba – Coalstoun Lakes Road (unsealed).
Coalstoun Lakes offers excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife. Enjoy spending time at the bird hides observing wildlife around the lakes and in the dry rainforest canopy. There is two bird hides along the walking track which are most useful when the lakes are full after heavy rain, and water birds flock to the two crater lakes.
