    Mount Tamborine is the first of the mountains south of Brisbane and is a major tourist area. This means there are some fantastic places to eat but it gets very busy with cars and I rarely ever went there.

    To the east Henry Roberts Drive offers great views on a fine day of the gold coast and to the south west is the part known as the goat track but I like this narrow road as it was often the only part free of cars.

    You can locate this road on the map, expand to see the list.

    These ‘good road’ posts were published 2006-2008. At some point the original images and descriptions became out of date and I moved overseas. I archived them here to update when I ride Australia again. This collection is just my own personal riding records, not a definitive list.


    1. Update

      The ‘goat track’ is closed. The mains raods website say for 4 weeks from the 23 of Oct, but it was closed since at least last Friday 20th Oct.

      There is plenty of signs to state road closed and you need to use the main road on and off the mountain.

      This is still a pretty good road if you can get a clean run.

    2. Thanks, I noticed the goat track still closed today 24/11. Wasnt a bad run today on a weekday – guess I mostly have seen it only on weekends.

    3. Goat track still closed in March ’07

      Rode up today from Beenleigh – very clear run, then down via Canungra goat track, and onto Nerang-Beaudesert, which was packed with traffic.
      Thank you for this amazing blog which helped me plan an enjoyable ride!

    5. Tamborine mountain is a residential area that is bombarded by roaring motorbikes every weekend. Residents are fed up with selfish bikers who drive recklrssly and rev their machines with total disregard for the residents and the wildlife that live here. Thrills for you, hell for us, how would you all like to listen to this racket every weekend.The mountain was a sanctuary for wildlife, now it’s become a fun park for self indulgent bikers. We don’t want you up here, go find somewhere else to rev your engines.
