About the region

Located just 20 minutes from the Ipswich central business district and 35 minutes from Brisbane central business district, White Rock – Spring Mountain Conservation Estate features the distinctive sculptured rocky outcrops of White Rock and Spring Mountain.
Covering over 2,500ha of regionally significant bushland, the estate also features extensive forested ridges, escarpments and valleys that are home to an amazing array of plant and wildlife species. Visitors can enjoy the full gamut of outdoor activities, including hiking, bird-watching, horse riding (bring your own horses), mountain bike riding and nature study. For the bushwalker, there’s everything from a leisurely 200-metre walk to the more challenging 19-kilometre round-trip trail. To see the spectacular White Rock allow up to three-hours return trip to tackle the moderate 6.5 kilometre round-trip trail. Most of the trails are suitable for hiking and mountain bike riding and if you’re on horseback, the Yaddamun Trail is perfect.
The entry to the estate is the Paperbark Flats picnic area at the end of School Road in Redbank Plains. Amenities on site include toilets, picnic facilities and horse float parking. Don’t forget to take a hat, sunscreen and drinking water. Visit the website for trail updates and more details and view/download the trail guide for more detailed information on each trail.
