Queen Mary Falls Caravan Park Notices
1st June 2022
PLEASE NOTE: Due to a landslide, The Head Rd has been closed until further notice.
There is a detour in place via White Swamp, however this is a dirt road and has several water culverts so is not recommended in wet weather or if towing or in a motorhome.
If you don’t wish to travel on a dirt road or you are towing, the best way to come is over Cunninghams Gap and through to Warwick and Killarney.
We hope this doesn’t change your mind about visiting this beautiful region. We need your support now more than ever.

SCENIC RIM REGIONAL COUNCIL NOTICE
Head Road Carneys Creek
A series of works will take place to replace approximately 200 metres of guard rail originally damaged by bushfires in 2019 at Head Road near Brett Road at Carneys Creek, which were anticipated to start at the end of May 2022.
Recent wet weather and flooding has caused additional damage to the previously damaged site and to further sections of Head Road, resulting in the closure of the road.
The current assessment has indicated that previously planned works can start in the coming month. There has been an increase in the volume of landslips and to the length of damage, and the road will remain closed until all associated rectification works are completed.
These works are on a very windy and steep section of Head Road near the boundary of the Scenic Rim and Southern Downs and the stabilisation of the rock slope is a risky job that will take time to safely carry out.
While works occur, an alternate route will be available through the Cunningham Highway or White Swamp Road, noting the White Swamp Road contains unsealed sections.
We thank the community for their patience and understanding while these important works are carried out. For more information on the Head Road project, visit Council’s website here
