Smiths Crossing

Where the old bridge crosses the Kolan River there is excellent rainforest. On the road from Bundaberg take the 1770 road off the Gin Gin Road. Drive for about 15 minutes until you cross the Kolan River. Take the next road on the left and follow it to the river. Don’t turn to Invicta. There are picnic tables and toilets. There are indistinct tracks into the forest and along these one can see good rainforest birds. Rose-crowned Fruit Doves are common. One can find several species walking quietly around. Barking Owls live here.
