Kenilworth Motocross Park – Dirt Bike Heaven
Only a couple of hours drive north-west of Brisbane you’ll find bloke heaven if you are into dirt bikes. A series of privately owned MotoX tracks called Parklands. Kenilworth MX Park sits amongst gum trees and rolling hills. There is a range of tracks to suit all skill levels including 100-foot tabletop jumps for those with no fear.
MX Park Tracks
There are five tracks for adults and two for kids and because the whole set up is on private property, there are no licenses required. There are two tracks available for the kids, with one flat for beginners and another with small jumps once they’re more comfortable. There’s an intermediate track for young adults and more advance kids wanting to build their confidence before the big guns. Then 2 motocross tracks with all the ups and downs, twists, turns and jumps a thrill-seeker could ever need. Camping is available for 8 bucks a night just down the road at the Kenilworth showgrounds where you will also find all the amenities you’ll need including the best 1 dollar hot shower going around. After a big day on the tight twisting circuits, it’s time for the lads to relax and enjoy a little downtime before a good night’s sleep and another crack at Parklands tomorrow.
Parklands are open 7 days a week from 8 till 5 and cost 30 bucks for adults and 20 for kids. For those looking to get to the park, you can them about 2km north of the Kenilworth township, just off Kenilworth Brooloo Road. Make sure you travel to the very end of Pullen Lane to find the entrance of the Park. Go to the website for all the details. And for a good night’s sleep, you’ll find the ARB Swag which is the same as the one we are giving away soon…at your local ARB store.
