We’re exploring the Sandstone Wonders country. Inside the Banana Shire, is a terrific destination for camping and touring enthusiasts. Today we are heading for the testing Razorback track as a shortcut to our final destination. Along the way are some spectacular country and challenging 4WD tracks. We are tackling the Razorback track to the very top (about 1100 metres) of Kroombit Tops National Park.
Kroombit Tops Plane
Nearby lies Beautiful Betsy, an American B24 Liberator Bomber that crashed in stormy weather. On the 24th of February 1945 on a flight from Darwin to Brisbane she struck with the top of the mountain. Betsy laid here undisturbed for almost 50 years until discovered in 1994 by a park ranger.
Beautiful Betsy is perched atop the Kroombit Tops National Park, check the NPSR website for the details on getting there. The Banana Shire Council has all the details on this and other favourite campsites in the region, head to sandstonewonders.com or OQTA site for more information.
