These are the areas that you might expect to see in the book but we couldn't put them in. Reasons include:
Some of these areas are used with permission for Mountain Bike Orienteering or other events (marked **).
If we got any of our facts wrong here do please let us know.
Noosa National Park - cycling is forbidden throughout the park all the way south to Coolum including Emu/Peregian Mountain.
Sheepstation Creek - a recent review of riding here by MBRC did not end well for MTB. The horseriding lobby regards fast-moving bikes as a threat. They lobbied better than we did.
Brisbane City Council (BCC) forbids cycling on dirt in all reserves except Mount Coot-tha.
Brisbane Koala Bushlands, Karawatha, Minnippi**, Seven Hills, Toohey - all BCC. It is a commonly held misconception that cycling is permitted in Karawatha.
