BCFing Guide to Summer: Touring

Hit the road these summer holidays and explore Queensland.

Queensland has literally thousands of trails, tracks, roads and routes that are perfect for a summer road trip. Even around Brisbane, there are dozens of spots within a few hours that offer the perfect opportunity for a day trip, or something a little longer.

The favourite for many of Queensland’s four-wheel driving fraternity is Double Island Point and surrounds. It’s the perfect place for a calm dip, while also allowing the fourbie to get a bit of sand under the wheels. A tip, as always tyre pressures a key to a successful day on the beach. We recommend 18PSI as a good starting point. A tyre deflator makes this job very easy!

Head inland and the tracks around the Glass House Mountains and Glass House Mountains are also great for a day trip. Who out there has tried Big Red? Or maybe The powerline track? If you have, you may have needed help from a few Maxtrax….or something with a bit more grunt.

For something a little different, why not stretch the legs and head south, to Sundown National Park. Within reach of Stanthorpe in the Granite Belt, the national park is awesome for four-wheel drivers. With slow, technical tracks, it’s great for those who are just learning, or the more advanced drivers can have a bit of fun too. Could we recommend a stop in at Red Rock Gorge? You’ll have to park up the vehicles, but the walk-in is totally worth it for the view.

Summer is a great time of year in Queensland, so you’d best spend if outdoors if you ask us! BCF have a load of great kit from XTM that will make your road trip a successful one.
