Queensland Moto Park (outside Brisbane)

The Queensland Moto Park offers trail bike enthusiasts a legal, family-friendly riding option suitable for beginners though to advanced riders. The site, the first of its kind in Australia, is located at Wyaralong, between Beaudesert and Boonah. The park opened in December 2011 and was established thanks to the investment of over two million dollars by eight South East Queensland Councils (including Brisbane City Council) and Queensland Government. Motorcycling Queensland is the operator of the park. Bookings are required and fees apply to use this facility.
