How to get to the
Queensland State Rowing Centre
on Wyaralong Dam
If you haven’t been out to the dam before, put Wyaralong Dam Access Road into your GPS. Wyaralong Dam Access Road is located off Boonah-Beaudesert Road in Allenview and continues through to the dam wall. It is located north-west of Beaudesert on the Teviot Brook, nestled at the base of Mt Joyce.
Coming from Brisbane some people prefer the route along the Cunningham Hwy through Peak Crossing, others prefer the Mt Lindesay Hwy through Beaudesert way. Those who have done both ways say it’s just personal choice really.
2022 relevant – A word of warning: if you are going the Mt Lindesay Hwy route and choose the cut though using the Bromelton House Road to by pass Beaudesert – think again. There are considerable road works here and the wait times are significant as the road is reduce to one lane and requires an escort vehicle to contain your pace through this area. There is also one stop point for road works in the same direction to the dam a bit further along the Beaudesert – Boonah Road.
Arriving in the morning, it is easier to turn left into the Dam Access road from the Peaks Crossing direction. Departing on the way home, it is easier to turn left onto Boonah-Beaudesert Rd towards Beaudesert.
