Lincoln Bomber Wreck, Mt Superbus - From Brett Rd
5th November, 2018. First time doing this hike from minimal information.
The Lincoln Bomber Fuselage remains was actually quite spectacular once I found it...and definitely worth the effort. Just prior to locating the wreck remains, I was starting to lose hope to be honest as I really didn't have any real idea where the wreck was, but was going off roughly where I recall seeing someone's GPS point of the remains on the Western side of small Mt Superbus. You can imagine my joy once coming down the peak of that mountain and beginning to find plane wreckage remains, and then beholding the wreck itself!
Very physically demanding hike up. 3 hrs to get to the wreck (one way)..... 1.5hrs to hike up the mountain to the Junction Campsite from the carpark. Need minimum 3L water for the return trip. Heaps of Gympie Gympie plants, so have long sleeves and pants. Stupid All Trails App on my phone kept turning on and off - hence the multiple stop/start points. Very irritating.
Didn't get any GPS lock on my way back from the Wreck - which was just as well because going back was way easier to keep on track than heading toward the wreck. Heading to the wreck it was VERY EASY TO LOSE YOUR WAY. Trust me. Keep eyes peeled not only on previous ribbon markers, but also on the faint trodden trail.
Only attempt this hike from the Brett Rd entrance if you are physically fit and can endure tough terrain with minimal to nil defined trail at times. Worth doing??? Absolutely.
50m above the Lincoln Wreck Site - small campsite. No views though.
This is the real start to the track. Jump the barbed wire fence and then up, up, up!
Keep your eyes peeled for ribbon markers... and the minimal foot track. Very easy to lose your way.
Keep to the main trail.... if you can see it! Use your phone, or GPS to get you back to the main Mt Superbus Trail line.
Like I said..... up, up, up!
Keep going up. You think this is hard???? The hardest part is still yet to come!
Small campsite.... can decide to go left to find the Lincoln Wreck.... or right to go explore steamers.
Yay.... you made it to the top of SE QLD's highest mountain.
Woo-pee-doo... there are no views whatsoever... now get out of here!
Plane Wreck.... obliterated! Very historical and ominous site. Take the time to honour those that perished here. This is what your hard-working hiking has earned you. Enjoy.
Park here.... jump the wooden locked fence, then head right. Not straight up the path to the sheds.
Don't bother heading towards the cow sheds. Great for mountain photos.... not to find a trail to climb up the mountain. Don't ask me how I know!
