With getting dirty and adventure in mind, most Brisbane residents are unaware of what adventures are available less than an hour from the heart of the City. Whether heading South or North, 4WD and trail bike enthusiasts can get off road and experience bush adventure and the sites that go along with it.

There are many forests around Brisbane that allow you to take your vehicles off road without the fear of destroying virgin bushland. Beerburrum State Forest is one of these locations. Between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, just past Caboolture, you can turn off the bitumen and onto some dirt and mud tracks that have already been cut.


You can purchase books that can guide you through these forests and take you places relevant to your driving experience.


No matter where you drive in the Beerburrum State Forest, you will nearly always see the peaks of the Glasshouse Mountains. There are picnic areas spotted throughout the forest, and some great lookouts for photo buffs. There are also trails that will take you to sacred Aboriginal sites, historic grave sites, Cobb and Co trails, and more pine trees than you can imagine.


For the serious off roader, there are some great mud holes and hill climbs that will but any driver and vehicle to the test. Check before you cross, that's part of the fun.


In most state forests permits are not required, but just check with the local forestry before venturing out. There is a camp site located on Roys Road that can be reached with a conventional vehicle. There are also some private camping grounds on the Glasshouse Mountain Road as well.

Remember that there is wild life in these forests so we should all drive carefully and safely to ensure that the forestry allows us to continue to use these tracks. Always make sure you travel with more than one vehicle, JUST IN CASE.
