Four-wheel drive adventures in the Southern Downs will leave every enthusiast coming back for more. There are a number of private properties and National Parks that offer well maintained facilities.
Sundown National Park
You’ll find some of the region’s best four wheel driving in Sundown National Park, south west of Stanthorpe. Sundown is high, remote and rough and entices self-sufficient campers, experienced bushwalkers and keen 4WDers. Terrain is rocky and can be challenging, but spectacular views of the park’s ranges are the prize. Good clearance and low range are recommended.
Talgai, Gambubal, Goomburra and Leyburn State Forests
Emu Creek Road in the Emu Vale Valley, east of Warwick, is appropriately named after the creek, which the trek crosses several times, before concluding at the base of Mount Superbus.
14 River Crossings of the Condamine
Please note as at 28 April 2021, the 14 River Crossings are closed due to safety concerns.
The Condamine River Road in Killarney’s Cambanoora Gorge is perfect for respectful four wheel drivers, hikers, horse riders and mountain bikers. Please note, the Gorge is not a 4WD track or adventure park. It is a public road bordered by private property, so please be respectful of the natural environment.
