The glasshouse mountains are every mans 4wd dream. Just outside of brisbane there are countless tracks to explore with heaps of opportunities to test your 4x4 in all kinds of conditions. From steep inclines to rutted out tracks with big mud holes the Glass House moutains will keep you entertained for days

Detailed Information

Well every chance we at 4wdlife get are heading up to the Glasshouse Mountains as its some of the most amazing 4wding you will find anywhere, let alone this close to Brisbane. The Glasshouse is simply amazing; we have been going there for some time now and have still not explored all the excellent tracks or surrounding forestry roads.

The Glasshouse simply has something for any keen 4wder, if it be your daily driving 4wd with little to no modifications to the most extreme of Four Wheel drives you will find so many challenging yet achievable tracks. The track conditions regularly change in the Glasshouse also, so be wary even of a track you have travelled once before may be completely unpassable in wet weather.

When planning your day trip to the Glasshouse we always recommend having at a bare minimum one recovery vehicle, the appropriate recovery gear and be leaving our have a very good understanding of what route to take out before night fall. As the Glasshouse is so large you can easily find yourself completely lost in no time at all if you’re not common to the area, and trying to find your way out at night will more often than not lead to vehicle damage or worse.

If you are going to the Glasshouse for the first time, I highly recommend not going if there has been much rain in the area recently as much of the terrain is clay and becomes almost all-together un-drivable.

Getting There

Head North from Brisbane travelling along the Bruce highway Take the left onto Steve Irwin Way then left again on Bahrs Rd, travel along Bahrs Rd for about 5 minuets then take any left and you will find yourself in amongst the thick of the some of the most amazing 4wding you will ever do.
