We've prepared a number of maps for you below, but please feel free to call us on 07 5544 3233 for more detailed instructions if you need further help in finding us.

A note if you will be using a GPS. Once you get to Rathdowney or the Upper Logan Rd turnoff, we recommend you DO NOT use a GPS.

  • As you leave Rathdowney, turn right onto 'Rathdowney - Boonah' Road. 
  • At 8kms turn left onto Upper Logan Road and follow the brown 'finger board' signs to Mt Barney Lodge and Mt Barney National Park for 10km.  The last 3kms is a good quality graded gravel road.

Beware of wildlife and cattle on the road.
