Round 4: Mt Joyce 8 August




For Round 4 of the series, join us at Mt Joyce. Drive in for the day, or take advantage of the accommodation options and unofficial practice Saturday.

The Mount Joyce Mountain Bike Trails are located at Lake Wyaralong, accessed via the Eastern Trail Access carpark.

You can’t beat the beautiful location that is Mt Joyce! The 30 kilometres + of trails borders the picturesque Lake Wyaralong. This is the perfect spot for a weekend adventure with camping near by as well! Where you ask? Just over an hours drive South West from Brisbane and just outside Beaudesert is where you will find this special place.

Mt Joyce is only just over an hour drive from Brisbane.  The terrain is often loose and dusty so good tyres are a must, and we recommend Maxxis Tyres. Its one of the more rocky locations to ride so make sure you take the tubes/pump essentials! Maxxis recommend their ‘Double Down’ side wall tyre on the rear and sometimes the front as well for extra puncture protection.

Special event parking is available where you can ride into the event village. Mt Joyce MTB park is managed by SEQ Water.

Download the Lake Wyaralong Recreation Guide for detailed information about activities, as well as a map and important safety information.

How to get there

Mt Joyce is located just 15minutes from Beaudesert and just over 1hour from Brisbane or the Gold Coast.

Access to the parking area is via Wyaralong Dam Access which is off Beaudesert Boonah Road.
