Bunya - TRAIL

Bunya - Trail, Brisbane, Australia

Fireroads, with some great singletrack parts, look for an awsome hidden singletrack about halfway along the main bike path as you ride down from the sport fields about 2kms on the left hand side where two fireroads leave the path, take the first fireroad and about 20m on your left is the start. steep drops and ramps a plenty!!

Its been a while since anyone posted on this, so thought I'd update it. Bunyaville is now part of the Trails Alliance and they have been working on upgrading the downhill tracks.

Lots of fire trails criss cross the forest, mostly following the ridge lines north to south. Boundary fire trails run east-west along perimeter and usually have steep descents and climbs.

There are 10 single track trails offering fun for beginners to intermediates. There is nothing too gnarly in Bunyaville.

Can be as dry as a bone during the dry and muddy in the wet. Holds water in low spots and gets your bike pretty dirty. The surface is pretty loose, particularly on hills.

If you find yourself climbing a lot, then you have picked a route that doesn't flow well. There are lots of steep climbs in Bunya if you traverse the terrain the wrong way. These will sap your energy.

Customer Service

For those seeking a flowing single track route, park at the car park about 500m east of Pine Hills Sports club and ride trails 2 (Jurrasic), then 4 (Creek Track), then up 5 (Kokoda), then 6 (Carnage), then 3 (Nutcracker). That is about a 14km loop with 4 downhill single trails. All are linked by fire trails. Check the Bunyaville map to link it together.

Those trails are also the pick of the single tracks in my opinion.

Similar Products Used: Start at trail 8 (Dark Side) and continue through to trail 9 (Mini-Van). Good technical single track with both climbs and descents no matter which way they are ridden. Challenging technical climbs with lots of rocks and roots to get you unstuck.

Zig Zag and Wayne's World are fun, but way to short to put in the effort to get there specifically. Good if passing through. Steps (Trail 7) near the dam is pretty meh. Again, don't go to the effort to get there.

The dam has a ghostie kicker if you bring along an old bike worthy of ditching and you're not afraid of eels :D

Less groomed than Daisy Hill, very narrow, but lots of variety! The surface can be quite loose and shaley in places, so a more aggressive tyre than used at Daisy Hill would be suitable. It reminds me more of OHV than Daisy, but is tighter. I think if it rains, Bunya would be less affected than Daisy (which can get super muddy at the Underwood Rd end!).

Customer Service

From the Jinker Trail carpark, go into Jurassic from the big sign board. Jurassic is a lovely, curvy trail, with nice bermed switchbacks and a pretty solid and smooth surface. You won't pick up much speed as it's practically flat, but there is still plenty to do!

It spits you out onto a firetrail which zooms you back to the start. If you cross the road from there then you can get stuck into the lower lying creek trails (kokoda), which are even tighter (but only grass lined, no nasty close trees), but cover a lot of ground with variety. It loops all the way around and back to the carpark again.

Similar Products Used: There's a sweet BMX track down near the sports centre, and some more aggressive/loose trails out to the north west. Just follow the fire trails out to mini van and wayne's world.

Frame Breaker   Cross Country Rider [Dec 13, 2003]

A great intermediate cross country location. Plenty of rough technicals and exciting downhills. Most of the trails lead onto the fire tracks so finding your way is easy. Give it 5 days until going after rain. Master hard braking before you go!

Customer Service

Ride through the residential area of Albany Creek and enter through the back. Try trails such as 2 Minute Noodles, the Dam Run and Nutcracker.

Similar Products Used: Ironbark Gully which conects of the back of Bunya. Fairly similar.

Calan   Downhiller [Dec 06, 2003]

The trails around the feild are good. But go to Chermy Hills instead.

Customer Service

To get to Chermy Hills from this trail,you'll need to follow the trail that leads from the feild around the mountain. It leads you out onto a road. Turn left and follow the road 200m. There is a gate that takes you into chermy hills.

Similar Products Used: Go to the top of Chermy Hills. There's an outpost with planks off wood imbedded in the ground of where things are located. Go to the direct right of this and there is a 280m trail. This trail is mad, it is fairly wide and people have built jumps down the trail. The trail is a bit slippery, but it is very fast!

Heaps of single track with a heap of semi-washed out fire trails. Some of the tracks are hard to find so keep your eyes open. There is plenty of drop offs with some really teakniqual downhills. You need to have a bit of experiance because some parts are really steep.

Customer Service

Just look up bunyaville or bunya state forest in the street directory and start any were it's all good.

Similar Products Used: Try the Samford state forest/ironbark gulley (find more info on these rides on this same site.

The Council has recently made a lot of the tracks in the Bunya State Forest off limits to bicycles however there is still some great riding for all levels. The best trail runs parallel to the Jinker Track road about 100m to 200m south of it running along the creek. Access it from the sports field end of the Jinker Track Road.

Customer Service

Start from the Bunya State Forest car park and picnic area off Old Northern Road, follow the ring road until you come to fire trails that lead off it - can't miss them. Due to the number of trails that are now off limits there is normally only one option to take once you get on the trails.

Nice single tracks coming off Jinker Track and flowing down the gully. Psyco is impressive and a bit sketchy when it gets washed out. A good mix of DH type riding with lots of XC. Should keep to the firetrails if you want to keep legal.

Customer Service
