Just north of Wondai, take a left turn off the highway and head towards Proston. Proston is noted as a major growing area for duboisia - a native tree valued for its pharmaceutical properties.
The Proston Show and Campdraft is held over three days each March. Onsite camping and adventure tracks for four-wheel driving enthusiasts are available at Manar Tourist Park on the Boyne River, around an hour from Lake Boondooma.
Peaceful Lake Boondooma is a paradise for anglers, campers, birdwatchers and water sports enthusiasts. The 1900ha dam was purpose-built across the Boyne River in 1983 to provide a water supply to the Tarong Power Station. A mix of 200,000 golden perch (yellowbelly), silver perch and Australian bass fingerlings are released annually into the dam, making it one of the most popular and consistent inland camping and fishing spots in South East Queensland. Sign up for the Boondooma Fishing Competition held each February or try your skill at numerous freshwater catch and release tournaments during the year. Lake Boondooma Caravan and Recreation Park, on the foreshores of the dam, offers caravan and camping sites, a bunkhouse and cabins along with tennis courts, modern amenities blocks, a kiosk and landscaped picnic and barbecue areas.
