It's another 11km from Chillingham to the Queensland border, with the road winding through increasingly forested country and climbing up the range. The border is on the top of the crater lip of the former volcano.

This is not a road for rushing, if you are in a hurry you should have stayed on the main freeway through the Gold Coast! I'm not suggesting you need to travel slowly for safety reasons, just that the scenery is too good to pass by without enjoying it to the maximum: you'll see plenty of photo opportunities.
