Cycle Tours Queensland
From the Gold Coast, we head over the Darlington Range to the market town of Beaudesert. Then on to Esk, as we pass Lake Wivenhoe, Brisbane’s main water supply.
As we head North we go through numerous historical towns, including Gayndah, one of Queensland’s oldest towns founded in 1849. It is a significant citrus growing area.  The original school (1863) still in use.
Further north is Emerald, the hub of central highland.
In Charters Towers we find lots of classic Australian architecture with verandahs and lacework. At the height of the gold rush it was Queensland’s second largest city with a population of 30,000.
Finally, on to Townsville, Queensland’s largest tropical city. From here you can get a ferry to Magnetic Island, and day cruises to the Great Barrier Reef.
