Brisbane Ranges Easy Overnighter

In late March we headed out into Brisbane ranges for an easy overnighter, it was a good time, here’s a bit of a run down on logistics for those that want to give it a go.

We booked Fridays Campground (km39) on Saturday night, it has drop toilets and tank water onsite. There are a few other campsites nearby if you choose to go elsewhere. A short ride from Fridays is the historic town of Steiglitz if you arrive to camp early and want to do a short ride unloaded.

Day two passes through Anakie late morning so there’s an opportunity to buy food at the general store, other than that you will need food for dinner on day one, breakfast and snacks on day two.

On day two there are several options for trains home from Lara (km90), North Shore (km102.5) North Geelong (km106) and Geelong (km110). This means if you are a little apprehensive about the 70km on day two it can be shortened to 50km. You can also skip the detour into the You Yangs MTB trails by going straight at KM71



  1. I will be driving down from Canberra ACT on the Friday prior to the bikepacking event.

  2. I really enjoyed the overnighter to Warrandyte recently! This event to the youyangs came up pretty quickly so i already have had it booked out with an interstate flight. Perhaps if there was a calendar for the next ride i can make sure i can come along to the next one.

    Great option to open to a ballot and make it more diverse.
    Thank you.
    Normally slow off the mark and they are booked out.

  4. Hi Anthony – thanks for the tip! That’s something we’re currently working on and hope to have live soon. Cheers, Huw
