Queensland Moto Park, South East Queensland’s premier trail bike facility, will host Queensland Minister for Sport Steve Dickson at an open day at the park tomorrow.

Council of Mayors (SEQ) Deputy Chairman and Scenic Rim Mayor John Brent and Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann will be on hand to welcome the minister at the Wyaralong trail bike facility.

Councillor John Brent said it is always a pleasure to show off Queensland Moto Park.

“Queensland Moto Park is something that the Council of Mayors (SEQ) and the participating SEQ Councils are extremely proud of,” said Cr Brent.

“In 18 months of operation, Queensland Moto Park has welcomed over 45,000 riders through the gate and the popularity of the venue is only growing.

“Importantly, it is offering trail bike enthusiasts a legal, family-friendly riding option that is suitable for beginners right through to advanced riders.

“It is a great success story and one we hope can be replicated within the SEQ region in the future.”

Queensland Moto Park will be open to the public as usual, with special open day activities including scenic helicopter flights over the park, a minikhana for kids, emphasising rider control, skill and fun, Power2Perform coaching demonstrations by Peter Hull, the Serco Yamaha Team onsite, showcasing their transporter set up and team skills and Kawasaki side-by-side guided tours of the park.

Visitors to the 745-hectare facility have access to six motocross tracks, a pee wee track and novice area, a freestyle motocross track and up to 50 kilometres of recreational trails as well as overnight camping facilities.

Queensland Moto Park will open at 8am as usual with open day activities kicking off at 9am. Formal proceedings with SEQ Mayors, Councillors and the Minister will take place at 10am.
