Imbil State Forest is located about 150km north of Brisbane.

The road between the Old Bruce Highway and Imbil is closed from 26 May due to bridge works at Chinaman's Creek.

The Imbil Police advise the best alternate route for rally participants and spectators travelling to Imbil is via the Mary Valley Link Road and the Mary Valley Road. This is a good quality road with clear signage and brings travellers to Imbil from the north.
