Bush Bashin' in your private 4WD
For the 4WD enthusiast, Monto Shire offers a voyage of discovery and adventure. There are several 4WD trips recommended that will satisfy the most adventurous of drivers:
1) Monal Goldfields
Visit the historic Monal Goldfields where the abandoned machinery, township and cemetery are reminders of a bygone era - a testament to the original settlers who dared to settle in this inhospitable range country.
Continue your trip back in time and pop into the century old Mungongo Hotel. A pioneering half day experience.
2) Kroombit Tops National Park & 'Beautiful Betsy'
Experience the challenge of Kroombit Tops National Park and enjoy the overwhelming, unspoiled beauty of open rainforests.
At the lookout, a viewing platform shows the magnificent Great Dividing Range rising from the rugged country below. On clear days you may also experience spectacular views to the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.
Along the road to "Beautiful Betsy" you will encounter the imposing Grasstrees, spectacular Fern Trees, high Piccabeen Palms and gigantic Blue Gums.
The Liberator bomber "Beautiful Betsy", crashed here during WWII and stayed hidden for nearly 50 years. Visit the crash site and war grave of the crew onboard.
After a long day out kick back and relax in our beautiful nature surrounded holiday park.
