Here's a link to some directions that Uncle Crumpet posted one other time that some up most of what you want pretty well.

also directions here

and a handy map of the Tops here

Not sure about getting back to Biloela. Obviously you could follow Tableland Road out to the Dawson(?) Hwy near Calliope and across that way. But I've often wondered myself if there are there dirt roads running west from Tableland Road that would cut out at least some of that highway?

Lucky your not going this weekend to the bomber like I was..the gates are locked for a week to allow shooters in there to knock over brumbies ,pigs and scrubbers.

G'day Rusty, i see you get around a bit on the ranges near Eungella, i loved the Captains Crossing ride, that was a pearler. Have you found a way through to Cathu state forest yet? Also i see a track that cuts across to Mt Hector off the Eungella/Binbee road, any intell on that one as well would be good
