Bora Rings in Benarkin SF Location
« on: October 04, 2019, 08:43:25 AM »
Would anyone know where these rings are located and what the motor vehicle/pedestrian access, is like?

I know they're at Benarkin and not far off the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

Hey Steffo.

Saw a listing of a photo of one of them https://www.flickr.com/photos/magictyger/15719218916, which down in the photo details, said:
GPS Latitude Ref - South
GPS Latitude - 26 deg 52' 57.23"
GPS Longitude Ref - East
GPS Longitude - 152 deg 10' 52.06"
GPS Altitude Ref - Above Sea Level
GPS Altitude - 379.6000061 m

You up for a bit of navigating ??? ;D

Or you may be able to get hold of the bloke through flickr, & get some info from him ???

Did an Army infantry training exercise through that area forever ago now, & NOT in a hurry to go back bush-bashing through there! :'(

Thanks for that, Fizzie.  :cheers:

I came across the rings, one Bora & one Kippa, in the mid '70's. Suffice to say that my memory is somewhat vague from that era! :D

Co-ords don't worry me but I don't think my GPS will be quite so accurate with the elevation ;D
