PostSubject: Paradise Dam Run 29th September!   Mon Sep 09, 2013 4:25 am

This looks like a nice place to do a club run and have a bbq. I'm going to look into wineries in the area to visit on our run to so this will be a a great event.
I'm planning on doing this run on Sunday 29th of September and we will meet at the department of transport at 7:30 am.  I will keep everyone updated if anything changes.



Paradise Dam is just a short 20 minute drive from the town of Biggenden,  an hour south-west from Bundaberg and 3 hours drive North of Brisbane.  The recreational area caters to day visitors and campers, and has many new modern facilities such as free gas bbqs and picnic areas, environmentally friendly toilets and boat ramp.

Things to do!
Walking trails: Paradise Dam has two walking trails, a 2km Heritage Trail and a slightly more challenging 5km Finney Creek walking trail. The 2km walk meanders gently through the bushland behind the campsites and gives access to some of the old mining shafts left behind from the mining days that the old Town of Paradise sprung from.
Camping, skiing, fishing, boating and watersports are all popular activities on the dam.  At the entrance to the dam is a lookout that offers  fabulous views of the dam and the dam wall.  With free gas bbqs, it’s a beautiful scenic spot for a rest stop, picnic or day out with the family.
The North Burnett region is home to many national parks, such as Cania, Mount Walsh, Woowoonga, Coalstoun Lakes and many more.
Kalliwa Hut is just 5km upstream from the Paradise Dam Camping area and is only accessible via the water.  The Hut was moved to its current location in 1936 and is now World Heritage Listed.  Our guided Kayak Tours are a great way to see the hut.

Ok last night it was confirmed at the Maryborough Ford club meeting that this is our latest run for this month. I'm very excited about this one as its the first club run I have organized. Next thing to sort out is the bbq.

When we get to Biggenden we will visit a couple of museums. The location is Walsh Street Biggenden. We all have to be very careful in these places as there are many trip hazards!  this should be a very interesting run!

What a great run this was today! It was like driving around in a slice of paradise! The Paradise Dam run was a massive success today! I would like to give a special thanks to who attended and also Deb Wilkin MFC vice president for taking care of the BBQ, bread, sausages, onions, and sauce!

I will get some photos up over the next few days!

Cheers Josh.
