Being one of the largest and most picturesque 4WD parks, Land Cruiser Mountain Park has a variety of things to see and do.
It’s affordable and you don’t have to drive miles to get to it, but you have to be mindful that the closest town is Kilcoy – so remember to fuel-up there before heading to the park, and there are signs along the way making it easy to find.
Set on 10,000 acres, the park has an abundance of attractions including waterfalls and swimming holes.
With a graded road from the office to the facilitated and well-maintained campsites, it is a great park for families and caravaners to camp for the weekend and get away from city life. However, if crowds aren’t your thing, you can camp anywhere on the property.
It’s also a haven for hardcore 4WDers who just go there to attempt Camp Road, a rutted track near the entrance of the park and a well-known meeting spot. Telecom Hill, which is closer to the campsites, is a rocky, shaley hill creating challenges for everyone who attempts it.
It pays to watch others go first so you can determine if you’re capable of giving it a go. Choosing a bad line on this hill has caused a few rollovers in the past.
With more than 200km of tracks to choose from, you can navigate through rocky, rutted gullies and creek beds, and the park has spruced up the signposts to make it a lot easier to navigate around the map.
Those who visited the park before it closed will notice a new entrance to the office, preventing anyone entering or leaving the park without signing in or out. Other rules that have been applied are: no driving after 10pm (not even to the toilets), park security has been enforced, and no noise in the campsites after 10.30pm.
