Dry Sandstone gorge country...looks interesting. :wink:
Checking access points.

Hot walking even in early spring. If there's no pools left in the creeks, a cool season exploration may be a better option.

Looks like a re-naming of Helidon Hills.

Somewhere different, not to far from Brissy, to stretch the legs & clear the mind. :wink:

Walked more than once some years ago but can recommend
also described in 'Bushwalks in the Toowoomba Region' Helidon Hills Walk 12 Route B in the 1993 edition (although Wikiloc refers to 'Walk 14' - different edition?)

Thanks for the recommendation, Tomh.
Walk 13 in the 3rd edition (2001) is the White Mt & Paradise Ck route.
Walk 14 is Alice & Murphys Ck (same edition).
There's also a 4th edition (2009) with more walks.

Hopefully there's some water left in the creeks for a swim if it gets too hot. Couldn't see the creek bed from my vantage points.
