Beautiful Betsy is a World War II B-24D Liberator Bomber aircraft which tragically crashed in Kroombit Tops National Park in 1945, its whereabouts unknown until it was discovered in 1994.
The Beautiful Betsy Walk leads to the crash site of the bomber, on the drier western side of the plateau. Read the signs along the walk to learn more about this tragedy and how the crash site was discovered many years later.
About the Walk
From the car park off the park's internal loop road.
- Rugged mountain scenery
- Dry rainforest
- Sandstone cliffs and gorges
- Open woodland
Few facilities are provided and most of the park is rugged wilderness.
Mobile phone reception points are signposted throughout the forest.
Rough tracks lead to other features but should only be attempted with Ranger advice. Be prepared for leeches if you walk through the rainforest.
Best Time To Go
During summer, walk in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat.
How To Get There:
The main access to Kroombit Tops is from the north via the Tableland Road, which is suitable for conventional vehicles.
From Calliope follow the Dawson Highway south-west towards Biloela for 4 kilometres and turn left onto Many Peaks Road. Follow this road for 1.5 kilometres then turn right onto Tableland Road. The park boundary is a further 50 kilometres along this road.
An alternative route exists via the Cedervale and Clewleys Gap roads from Ubobo. This road is rough and is only accessible by 4WD in good weather conditions. Go for a 90-minute scenic drive on a loop road through the park. Most of this circuit is four-wheel-drive only. Allow two hours for the drive.
