Our Ride Base

Our Ride Base is level, generous in size, and has a toilet and shower block, funded by a grant through the Qld Department of Sports and Recreation, thanks to the joint efforts of the Big Country Endurance Riders and the "old" Beaudesert Shire Council.

Since this initial grant many more grants have been achieved a joint exercise between Big Country Endurance Riders Inc and Beaudesert Trail Riders Club through a Powerllink grant program was successful in erecting a shelter with 2 picnic tables, a horse wash bay and 8 horse yards.

Logan City Council have continued improving the grounds by erecting a bbq, playground area, horse water trough with pump and float valve, pier into the lagoon and shelter for bird watchers etc to enjoy the lagoon and the varied birdlife that nest within the reeds growing there.

Big Country Endurance Riders Inc. have also managed to succeed in obtaining further grants - one after major flooding damaged some tracks through the flood funding for approx. $13,000 which assisted coundil in rectifying these and then in 2016 for $100,000 through the Qld State Governments  "Get in the Game"  Grant - this along with an additional $10,000 that Big Country Endurance Riders Inc added to the funds has been used on constructing some new tracks, upgrading existing tracks and permanently marking tracks. With an information sign etc being placed at the park and near the water tower for all to utilise.  We are very excited at achieving this fantastic grant, which will be beneficial to many recreational activities and the local community!  This project has now been completed.

Getting there:

From Brisbane: Head toward Beaudesert, at Browns Plains take the Middle Rd / Boronia Heights exit, follow through Boronia Heights (approx. 5 kms) turn left at the roundabout into Teviot Rd (just before the railway overbridge) then turn right into Pub Lane (at the Pub Lane Hotel/Woolworths Shops) continuing into Spring Mountain Drive, then left into Tully Connection Road.

From Ipswich or the Gold Coast: Take the Logan Motorway, take the Beaudesert exit, at Browns plains take the Middle Rd / Boronia Heights exit, turn left at the roundabout into Teviot Rd (just before the railway overbridge) turn into Pub Lane which continues into Spring Mountain Drive, then left into Tully Connection Road.

An alternative route from Ipswich and the west is now along the extension of the Centenary Hwy through Springfield Lakes and coming into Greenbank via the Springfield Greenbank arterial road, once into Greenbank go past the primary school, turn right into New Beith Road to the round about, turn right into Spring Mountain Drive, then left into Tully Connection Road.

From Pub lane: At New Beith Rd keep straight ahead along Spring Mountain Drive, continue on for approx 3 km then turn left into Tully Connection Rd. Continue for about 400 Metres. The Ride Base is on your left.

 

NB - GPS's devices may take you further down New Beith Rd and into a dirt portion of Tully Road (Tully Rd is in 2 sections) and you cannot get through this way - this will not bring you to the ride base.  Entry is via Spring Mountain Drive, coming into the Spring Mountain Estate.
