Detailed Information

Imbil State Forest has a great range of tracks for all experience, capabilities, and all 4wd types, but don’t be alarmed as not only has Imbil State Forest got some great 4wd tracks but also includes great camping, swimming and the scenery is magical.

One of the benefits of a place like Imbil State Forest is the fact you don’t have to have a highly modified 4wd, and if you do, there is still plenty of fun to be had. There is a range of tracks which will test anyone’s, and your 4wd’s, ability and if not careful, you could end up in a tricky situation. If there has been rain around, a good set of mud terrain tyres would be beneficial as many of the tracks will get extremely slippery and there are quite a few tracks with very steep edges, but if you don’t have mud terrains then there are plenty of other places to drive where you will be fine. There are a few places where your 4wd may bottom out with a lift but generally speaking you will be ok. There are a few water crossings, nothing too extreme, but check the depth just in case as you never know especially if you’re in a smaller 4wd. The drive through Imbil State Forest to Lake Borumba is a great trip and if you like a bit of fishing a great place to stop and through in a line.

The scenery amongst Imbil State Forest has a full range of vegetation with rain forest, eucalypt trees, creeks and other spectacular scenery. From the top of the ranges you will get some magnificent views over the valleys and the rest of the State Forest. As you are driving around, keep your eyes open for wildlife as it is in abundance throughout most of the Forest. There is also a number of walking tracks which are a great alternative way to see the scenery and stretch your legs from all that driving.

The camping at Imbil (Charlie Moreland) is a great grassy area amongst the trees; however, the only place for showering is Little Yabby Creek which is adjacent to your campground. There is rainwater available and a suitable treatment is recommended if you are going to be drinking it, and toilets are also located within the camp ground. They do have locations for you to build a little open fire however you may need to bring your own firewood. From Charlie Moreland you will have great access into Imbil State Forest as well as Conondale National Park. This parkland is suitable for all types of camping (camper trailer, tents, etc.) and is accessible by a car from Sunday Creek Rd (which is unsealed). Camping here is well priced costing you only $5.15/night for an Adult only $2.80/night for a child, which is age 5-18 and if you get the family rate only $20.60/ night.

Imbil State Forest is a great place to 4wd and camp with many other locations nearby which are just as good such as Conondale National Forest, Jimna State Forest and Amamoor State Forest; you can spend a long time exploring this great country side.
