The Bends Lowood:

Travel west on Ipswich road and take Toowoomba exit. A few kilometres past Blacksoil turn right onto Brisbane Valley Highway and proceed towards Esk.

The steep dirt track leading to the water is suitable for 4x4s or 2wds with care. There are no facilities available at the site but there is a good canoe launching site and two sets small rapids. Take care when entering and exiting the site as the road is winding and visibility is limited.
