  How far to travel to see this?
by wise23girl

If you are used to seeing one magical sight after another in other parts of the world it may not be the case in Queensland.
How many times does the British Isles fit into Qld...About 7.1 times. And there may only be one extinct volcano to see after miles(kilometers)of travel.
There is a great little pub to visit on the way to Monto in Qld. Is it too far just to have a meal and see the memorabilia? (see my things to do in Qld) tip.
So it is not a deliberate trap but a trap none the less if you travel far on lonely roads for a very small reward.

Unique Suggestions: Check the distances you need to travel and relate this information to travel at home or somewhere you know. I would have to travel from London to York 4 times there and back to see this attraction. Read up on the attraction . Ask in VT.

Call on the phone to check opening times....sometimes things change.

Fun Alternatives: Sus out something else that you would enjoy doing that is within range. See local VT tips or ask on forum
