Drive and Dive

If an adrenalin rush is what you crave, why not head on down to Kingston Park Raceway for a fun-filled, action-packed morning or afternoon on the racetrack. Karting at Kingston Park Raceway is a great experience for beginners as well as racing enthusiasts. All safety measures are taken to make sure the event is suitable even for kids who are just five years old. Kingston Park is located in Kingston between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It’s a great family venue for anyone who loves the thrill and entertainment of high speed fun.

Experience the ultimate adrenalin rush as you stand forty metres in the air and prepare to take the ‘leap of faith’. Imagine being the equivalent of fourteen stories above the ground, taking in the panoramic view of the local landscape and the only way down is to jump. Bungy Australia is now situated at Kingston Park Raceway.

West Logan Self Drive

Okay so you would prefer something a bit slower paced? Why not jump in your car and head off on your own self-drive tour through the south-west of Logan. Here’s an example of what you might see.

Drive along Browns Plains Road to Berrinba Wetlands where you and the kids can walk or cycle along the walking trails around the Wetlands, check out the mechanical eagle and play a game of cricket or footy.

Have your camera ready – there will be pelicans, cormorants, and many other water birds (some migratory) ready for a photo opportunity not to be missed. You might even see a big blue-tongued lizard or a water dragon lazing in the sun!

Continue along Browns Plains Road and turn south into Mt Lindsay Highway at Browns Plains. Stop off in Jimboomba for morning tea at one of the tea or coffee houses there.

Drive onto the Visitor Information Centre in Beaudesert. Browse the wonderful array of gifts and souvenirs. Pick up a map of the region and gather some interesting information from the local volunteers.

Continue on to Lake Wyaralong, Queensland’s newest dam, for a picnic lunch in the parkland. A visit to the dam wall is a must.

Head for home through Undullah back to the highway with your weary but happy travelers.
