Easter visitors enjoy stunning Boyne Valley

THE Boyne Valley Discovery Centre campground at Ubobo was busy over the Easter weekend with plenty of visitors out and about exploring the region.

Members of the Bouldercombe Trail Horse Riding Club spent the break discovering the valley through the ears of a horse, completing two 20km rides.

One took them south along the foothills of the Many Peaks Range from Ubobo to Littlemore and back across Ridler Creek to the Discovery Centre camping grounds.

While they enjoyed lunch, two dingoes sat and watched them from a short distance away. 

The second ride took them north to Nagoorin before turning west to follow Gentle Annie Road to Cedarvale Road and back to Ubobo.

Meanwhile, the Tvan Club adventurers set up their camper trailers and headed off to explore the tunnels on the Gladstone-Monto railway line in the morning, and the old Glassford Creek Mine site on Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday they took in Kroombit Tops and Beautiful Betsy.

Day visitors brought their children to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Boyne River and local creeks. 

Others explored the rural roadways on motorbikes. 

All enjoyed the hospitality of the local volunteers who run the  Discovery Centre.

"Thanks guys. Fantastic weekend. You sure know how to spoil us. Appreciate all the work and effort you all put in to make our stay so enjoyable," said trail riders Pauline and Steve Fagg on Facebook.
