Hi Snap,

   Not sure about the fishing there, I have heard it is OK, as for getting there
I would head out through Yatala, Beauy and Boonah.

Cheers Jason

    Beaudesert nerang road is the best way from the coast. 
    Plenty of bass and yellas there plus the occasional cod.
    Gets a bit busy on the weekend with the skiers but they are restricted to travelling in a clockwise direction so it is a bit easier to spot them.
    There is a large 6knot area in the trees where you can escape them.
    Van park is clean and well run plus a few other camping locations also available but check if they have boat launching facilities as SEQ water has cracked down on trailer boat launching from the bank
    Cheers

    What are you towing with? 
    Should be no problems with later 3l turbo diesels just drop a gear and enjoy scenery
    Road from nerang not as steep as cunninghams gap and not as windy as heifer creek rd> If you are worried about hills go the long way via m1,logan motorway and  aratula but will probably nearly double your traveling time.
    Why not just go for a day trip ,have a picnic lunch beside the dam and sus it out?
    Cheers

    Hi Snap,

        The trip either way is about 5-10min difference and about 15Km difference in distance,
    I know which way I would go towing a van or boat.

    Cheers Jason
