See Something Amazing – Queensland Mountain Biking And Camping Holidays

If you love the great outdoors, what could possibly be more appealing than a camping and mountain biking holiday to Australia? With some remarkable terrains to thrash about, ultra-affordable campsites in national parks where you can watch kangaroos hop about over breakfast, and cheap campervan hire in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, why wouldn’t you book flights and take a holiday Down Under?

Mount Crosby

It isn’t the best that Australia has to offer, but if you have just arrived in Brisbane, picked up the campervan or motorhome you’ve hired and are looking to hit some trails on your mountain bike, then Mount Crosby is not a bad place to start.

Located just 22 kilometres from the pretty Brisbane CBD – spend a few days here if you get the chance – it not only boasts some excellent mountain bike trails, but also some excellent campsites, making it perfect for a couple of days before heading to your next destination.

D’Aguilar

One the way to Kilcoy lies the rather unassuming town of D’Aguilar, a short distance from Woodford which has been made famous by its excellent Folk Festival which takes place annually over the New Year period.

The national park at D’Aguilar is well-known and there are some excellent mountain biking trails found here. As they can be a bit rough in places, you will need to make sure your bike is up for the task at hand and it would also be a wise move to pack a maintenance kit, the likes of which you can purchase at any good bike store.

Sunshine Coast hinterland

Northeast of D’Aguilar and closer to the stunning Sunshine Coast shoreline, the hinterland is an excellent place to spend a few days in the comfort of the motorhome rental you arranged in Brisbane.

There are not only many excellent mountain biking trails of note here, but also many scenic road routes that would be best enjoyed on a road or touring bike, though you won’t be disappointed with what you experience if you brought a mountain bike instead, as is advisable due to the number of great trails in the region.

Making arrangements

In addition to planning your itinerary for the mountain biking and camping adventure of a lifetime, you will also need to make arrangements for motorhome hire and if you are planning to buy a mountain bike in the country, then you will also need to find yourself a great deal on a mountain bike.

Fortunately, like good mountain bike shops, there are now so many campervan rental agencies in Queensland where you can arrange a campervan or motorhome for hire, with many located in Brisbane so you can make your way from the airport straight to the agency and pick up your vehicle. Many agencies providing cheap campervan hire in Brisbane will arrange airport pickups, which is definitely something to look into.

You and your travelling companions are sure to have a blast camping and mountain biking around Queensland, Australia’s Sunshine State.
