Fun & Easy 4WD Tracks Near Brisbane

  • Glasshouse Mountain Track

    It is said to be every man’s dream to explore this 4x4 track who loves to have an adventure located just in the north of Brisbane along the Bruce Highway. Take a left turn to Steve Irwin Way and then onto Bahrs Road, which is just five minutes away on your four-wheel-drive vehicle. Further down the road take another left turn to experience some of the most amazing 4WD campers drives you will encounter.

    From steep descent to rut tracks and huge mud holes - you will thoroughly enjoy the 4WD adventure this place has to offer. However, the track conditions change frequently, so be cautious as tracks may become completely impassable in wet weather. We recommend you to plan your trip, have a fair idea of your route and leave ample time to exit before nightfall. Do not attempt this track in your hired 4WD Brisbane when there is much rain in the area or you may get bogged in the clay.

  • Moreton Island

    Just 40 km out of Brisbane you will find unique wildlife and scenery. The Island can only be traversed in a 4x4 rental vehicle and there are plenty of 4wd tracks with more than 40km of beach to drive on. Ensure that your vehicle has a good clearance when attempting to cross over on the inland tracks as these tracks are sandy and you can easily get bogged in the soft sand. Note: There are several sections of the beach that you can’t drive on.

    There are passenger ferries, taking people to the wrecks which are certainly worth checking out. Spend a leisurely afternoon, swimming and snorkelling. View the abundance of marine life at the wrecks.

    For 360° degree views of the island, climb up to the lighthouse on Cape Moreton. Here, you will see Mount Tempest, the biggest sand dune globally, and these stunning views are undoubtedly well worth the climb.

     There are several campgrounds on Moreton Island plus camping zones on the beaches all with different facilities. For more camping information, check out

  • Fraser Island, Northern Forests

    If you are a 4WD enthusiast, it is a must-do track when you head to Fraser Island. This scenic 36km drive starts at Happy Valley and heads northwest towards Yidney Scrub. You will be crossing through rainforest, woodlands and past the Boomerang Lakes.

    The Northern Forests tracks are for experienced 4x4 drivers only. These tracks are very rough with deep ruts and soft sand and for the most of the track, you will go through dense rainforests. The area offers much diversity and you must not miss the opportunity to visit and experience this adventure on your itinerary to Fraser Island. Drive on the beach only when the tide is low. The risk of a rollover is high during high tide. 

    Visit Lake Garawongera or Lake Allom – both offer lovely picnic grounds and amenities. You can also continue to the Knifeblade Sandblow lookout before reaching the eastern beach where the campsites are located.

    Vehicle access to Fraser Island is by Ferry (Barge) only. Permits are required for beach driving on Fraser Island, which can be obtained from the Queensland Parks Booking Website. Driving instructions are also issued which should be adhered to as driving on sand can be a tricky proposition.

  • North Stradbroke Island

    It is approx. 2 hours’ 4wd rental drive east of Brisbane with many four-wheel-drive bush tracks and kilometers of sandy beaches you can drive on. Only drive at low-tide times and stay on the hard sand. Remember not to drive or park on the water or the dunes, and also watch out for other beach users and wildlife

    Four-wheel driving is only allowed on Flinders Beach and Main Beach and designated access points. In additiona, driving is not permitted on beaches 45 minutes on either side at the high tide time.

  • Bellthorpe National Park

    You can access the 4WD wonderland of Bellthorpe National from three locations. All three routes offer different levels of challenge for the adventurer. But, don’t worry, all of the Bellthorpe 4WD tracks have signs with difficulty ratings that rate gravel, fire and forestry management roads.

    All three 4WD Brisbane routes will take you through the greenery, water crossings, and hill climbs. No doubt you will also spot a native animal or two during the 4WD adventure.

  • D’Aguilar National Park

    Another 4WD track near Brisbane, the D’Aguilar National Park stretches from Moreton Bay Region to the Sunshine Coast area. Again, you do not need any permits to drive your 4WD hire through this park. Visually stunning, the route takes you through eucalypt woodlands and gum forests.

    Don’t forget to stop at the Rocky Hole, which can be found in the Mount Mee section of the park. Use the 4WD track from the Gantry Day Use Area for a 25 minute drive. You can also access the Rocky Hole from Woodford and Dayboro.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned off-roader, there are many fantastic 4WD tracks near Brisbane. You can also check out our 4x4 trip guide on Levuka Rainforest if you’re looking for amazing tracks with different difficulty levels.
