1945 crash site of Beautiful Betsy

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Located in Kroombit Tops National Park, in the Banana Shire is the 1945 crash site of Beautiful Betsy, the ill-fated WWII Liberator bomber. Her story is sign-posted on the short walk to the site from the Loop Road. High-clearance 4WD vehicle required.

How to get there?

If you’re in a conventional car or towing a trailer or caravan, you’ll need to access the park via Ubobo via the Dawson Highway near Calliope. The route takes you 70 kilometres along unsealed roads to the Griffith Creek camp site.

Only suitable in dry conditions and to 4WD, traversing the park via the Razorback Track and Loop Road will take you across rivers and deep ravines to fantastic heights where the sites and hikes are in the midst of wild country. These tracks less travelled are best left to experienced drivers with high clearance vehicles.

There are picturesque picnic spots by the creek and it’s an easy 100 metre walk to the lookout with fantastic views of the Boyne Valley.
