On the banks of Barambah Creek, Fick’s Crossing is a nice spot to stop for a break or stay for a while. Drive through the Allan “Snow” Huston Memorial Park , which is adjoining to Fick’s Crossing, to park near the creek. The creek can easily be walked to from anywhere in the memorial park.
I haven’t been able to find much information about Fick’s Crossing. I assumed it is named where a crossing was made over the Barambah Creek. Talking to a couple of other people there, they had the same assumptions but didn’t know for sure.
At one end the creek is shallow and provides easy access to put in a kayak, paddle board, or go in for a swim. Upstream a pier goes out into the creek, a couple of people were fishing from it while I was there.
The brown sign on the approach to Ficks Crossing Road ‘Fick’s Crossing Camp Access’ suggests camping is allowed, but there is no information that specifically states this. A water trails booklet from Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils lists Ficks Crossing as a camping location.
To get there:
Turn into Ficks Crossing Road from Bunya Hwy (on the left if heading from Murgon, on the right if heading from Wondai). Continue for 650m, turn left into the parking area just after the road becomes gravel. To the right of the parking area is an access track that allows you to drive further in.
