PLEASE NOTE, Lambs Road is best in dry weather. Also be aware that some GPS divices show roads that do not exist.
Use Conlons Road. If you are coming from Childers heading south it is the 3rd left after the Goodwood-Woodgate turn off on the southern side of Childers. If you are coming from the south, after the Isis River, watch for the Buxton turn off opposite the BP service station. You are only a couple of kilometers from Conlons Road. Conlons Road is on your right at the bottom of a hill. Once on Conlons Road, follow it until you come to a T-intersection, then turn right. Immediately after turning right, you will go over a set of cane train lines. After this, you have an option of going straight ahead onto the dirt or left to follow the bitumen. You must go straight onto the dirt. This is Bootharh Road. Continue on this road for several kilometers, then turn at the first left onto Sims Road. Immediately after you turn left, you should see a sign for Ausyfish. This means you are on the right road. We are 1kl along Sims Road on the right. There is an Ausyfish Sign just inside the fence next to the driveway.
