Thanks mate, I rode Daisy Hill last Sunday, This Sunday I might give Bunya a go!!! I haven't been up there since around 1999' so I will see how it is.
I got my 25 year old Rocky Mountain Steel MTB up and running
It's infectious, and addictive!

Just been on a loop through Whites Hill, Mt Gravatt and Toohey's Forest. Wow, I can't believe how much Toohey's has changed over the last 10/15 yrs....What happened to all the paths, single tracks etc up there???, I done a few loops and found some paths after riding on the cement bike path that took over the old trails
Plenty at Bunya and Gap Creek. Just park the car in one of the car parks on Bunya Rd or at Gap Creek and follow your nose.
Here's a STRAVA link for my last ride at Bunya, it's been a while…sigh. It pretty much covers all the best tracks there.

White’s Hill, Mt Gravatt and Toohey Forest are all off limits to MTBing with the exception of the paved/bitumen paths. You can find all the legal trails via the council maps... although they’re not really trails, more weekend roll with the kids. Shame cause I live right near all of these places and would love a network of single trails close by.
However I do understand the council’s/eco pioneer’s point of view about maintaining these areas as they are. An influx of rider’s to these inner-city forest could potentially cause some damage, due to the expected numbers they would get. Rangers have been known to hand out $500 fines for riding on any of the walking tracks. Best to stay away.
to OP, also try Bayview. Maps available at http://www.mtbdirt.com.au/

Sweet, thanks mate. Has Bunya changes much over the years??? We used to meet up at Ironbark Gully Carpark and do a few loops, keen to give it a go in the next few weeks
If you fancy heading further North to the Sunshine Coast

There might be a local one with your council.
So disappointing. I must see at least three people up there each afternoon. I just don't understand keeping something "pristine" to the point of not being able to use it.
Went up to Ironbark/Bunya today and I see what you mean now with all the track work, not so raw anymore. I caught the train and rode from Ferny Grove to ironbark, done a few loops and ended up at Bunya. Didn't hang around much as I rode Mt Gravatt on the roadie earlier in the day. Next time I will make a day of it and ride the trails at Bunya more. Thanks for the info guys
