Taking your fitness to the next level
Jubilee Park bicycle trail Toowoomba
Popular with locals, Jubilee Park is beautiful and challenging.

If you're ready to go to the next level, Jubilee Park offers 25 kilometres of some of the finest trails in Queensland. Bushwalking, horse riding, running and mountain biking for the athlete in you.

Bike trails range in difficulty from easy to hard and are cross-country loops. Some of their names are Easy Rider, Highlife, Hyperlink, Defibrillator and Rollercat. Experience awesome thrills on the first legal Queensland downhill track, MacKenzie Frenzy.

There's also a 3.7km bridle trail, a shared trail for bikes, walkers and horses, a 1.2km Scenic Rim track, a 1.8 Tristania track and lots more to choose from.

For the novice mountain biker, a trail of 1.3km isn't too hilly, but you may be surprised by the narrow width of the track. It's a rough ground of course and there are trees right by your elbow or almost jutting into the track in spots. In some places, the track is just a couple of vehicle tyre tracks. Signage provides clear instructions at the trailheads.

There are six access points into Jubilee Park. The Amos Road (bottom carpark), Harvey St (carpark), Jellicoe St (no parking), Warana Ave (no parking), Woolridge St (no parking) and the entry from the Bridge Street trailhead (rough parking). The Harvey St entry has a gazebo and drinking water. Parking is limited at the Bridge St trailhead and the ground is suitable for four-wheel-drives.

The park is a peaceful and beautiful location with birdsong. Walkers can take the Bridle Trail or others and enjoy fabulous views overlooking the park and the Great Dividing Range.

It wasn't until after the 2011 flood in Toowoomba, that the trails became what they are today. Flood damage prompted the Toowoomba Mountain Bike Club to approach Toowoomba Regional Council and businesses to help create some of the best and most varied trails in south-east Queensland. Travellers bringing their bicycles love the park so much they sometimes stay overnight to ride the next day as well. It's a wonderful weekend of fitness and training in a picturesque setting.

It's the perfect time to visit as the park is lush and green from rainfall. No pets are allowed in Jubilee Park. It's a popular local bikers' workout. Challenge yourself to work up a big sweat in the beautiful nature reserve of Jubilee Park.
