I’m guessing that, when many of us in the southeast corner of Queensland think of the Logan region, we think of the bits we see from the M1 (Pacific Motorway) as we speed from, or down to, the Gold Coast.
The Logan region is, however, a bit more than this as it is the gateway to much of what draws us to camping and travel in this corner of the state.
The Logan region is bounded by Browns Plains and Springwood in the north; the Logan and Albert Rivers in the south; Beenleigh and Carbrook in the east and some bush areas to the south of Ripley in the west.
So, don’t just pass through Logan as you head out to other regions such as the Scenic Rim, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Redlands Coast, and even Brisbane. Take the less used roads and stop to look around or even shop at the bakeries and butchers for that bush snack/meal.
I’ll show you around roads such as the Undullah Road (a back road linking Ripley to Woodhill) then on up to Bushman Drive to South MacLean, and Mundoolun Road and the old stone Mundoolun Anglican church built in 1902 in the memory of John and Anne Collins.
We can even pop into the Beenleigh Rum Distillery, Poppy’s Chocolate or the local markets that are open during different periods of the year.
I’ll keep you posted.
