The stations that lie among the gorges, gullies, plains and ranges of Banana Shire’s rich cattle country stretch out from fence lines along the roadside or from higher ground, spanning across grand vistas as you peer on the valleys below. This is Queensland country.
THEODORE to THEODORE 76 KM
Your first stop is along Glenmoral Roundstone Road for about 6 km. The views of Glenmoral Range and dam are amazing and definitely worth stopping for. Grab your camera while you’re at it. Your second stop is along Beckers road, where the views rival the ones you saw minutes before. These views are spectacular and make for some fantastic photos over the gorge.
Travel another 2 km where Beckers Road traces the boundary of Dawsonette Station on the left. You are travelling parallel to Glenmoral Range. Further down the road is the Dianne Downs Station. This is a renowned Droughtmaster Cattle Stud.
A short distance will bring you to Nunns Crossing on the Dawson River. With the calming sound of running water and surrounding forests of tea trees, this is an ideal place for a picnic lunch or afternoon tea break and quick dip if the weather is warm. Refreshed and back on the road you’ll pass a good stand of Bauhinia Trees.
