Good motorcycle roads Gold Coast - Springbrook Mountain














Good Rides - Springbrook Mountain, QLD.



One of the best rides in the Gold Coast area. A climb up a small mountain which twists and winds its way along the edge in older style surveying.




The road has some leisurely sweeping corners before coming to a low concrete bridge that signals the start of a superb series of corners that doesnt ease up really until you are at the top.


Try to get past any slow cars on the straight before the concrete bridge or again on the straight before the picnic grounds as not too may places to pass until further up the mountain.


Narrow in parts and with two wooden bridges that need to be treated with care


Above photos - Pine Creek Rd - the western side of Springbrook Mt.

I mostly ride only to the Pine Crk road turnoff on the right to Advancetown/Numinbah valley, which is just after the colourful water tank on your left. However if you do go on to the top of the mountain proper there is a a number a good lookouts some like this (the canyon) look back to the gold coast and the ocean while others are on other side of range looking south over the numimbah valley. 3 or 4 cafes and coffee shops and one pub (that I can not recommend), try the English gardens cafe for a coffee at the very end of the road (now closed it seems).


Going down the other side used to be called 'the goat track' (a aussie term used for many a road that is not in the best shape if your reading this from abroad) and it used to be real bad - however pine crk rd has been sealed all the way for years and is a top ride in it own right.
More Springbrook here.

  1. Hi mate

    Aussie buell here, I checked this site out the other day and it helped me decide to go south again for a while.

    I did the Springbrook ride but came down the hill instead of your suggested up.

    I just wanted to add an update for riders. There is brand new top quality bitumen on all the corners at the bottom of the range. Beautiful smooth corners but as it is new road works, there is a lot of loose dirt and small amount of gravel just before and after all the new sections.

    Absolutley still worth going and not to be missed, just a heads up as you power through the superb corner only to get a smallish suprise at the end.

    BTW great site mate

  2. Thanks, most of the loose stones have been swept away by cars on that lower couple of sections as of writing this but still a bit uneven. That new hotmix is superb. I got stuck with alot of road works today so expect some more new surface to appear soon.

  3. Heya, great site! I've done a few of those rides, but definitely not enough of them... Thanks for taking the time to list them all out and write about them and put photos up etc...

    Have you thought about putting up the routes on motowhere.com?

  4. Hey Just rode this ride at the advice of this article and wooo what an awesome trip. My friend and I did it on our 600's and on a weekday (love RDO's) it was a really enjoyable route - the turns seemed to end way too quickly though! The lookout is awesome.

    This is a great site!!!

  5. You know what they say - time flys when your having fun - the good roads are like that!

    Ride up Springbrook and down Pine Crk road to the T junction then left to ride Hinze raceway and then go up to Lower Beechmont and have a drink at the general store then turn around and ride em all in reverse order :-)

  7. Hello,

    This is Rare White Ape from the Bikeme.tv forums.

    I recommend heading all the way up to Springbrook and looking for the Best Of All lookout. It's at the end of Repeater Station Road (which is a neat little blat in itself) and is a 300m walk from the carpark.

    I hadn't been there in about ten years until I rode up there again this week. I had some spare time and thought, what the hell, for old times sake.

    I swear, even if you've been there before, steeping out and seeing that vista takes your breath away every single time. I won't spoil it for you - you MUST go there yourself.

  8. That is a great tip Rare White, I must revisit there myself once the weather cools down and you get the super clean coastal morning air - can see forever.

  9. Test your skills on this ride. Worth getting to top. If you get three quarters up and change your mind you can turn down a road which you can get to the boarder of queensland and nws. Sorry dont now names of roads. Give it a go.

  10. Hi Iron chef
    I just joined this site. I came up from Sydney and I used to go to some road where bike guys gather. Now move to Tweed, no knowledge of road. So, I Google it. This site is the most informative and enjoyable web page I come cross. There are so many nice road that I did not know! I put my bike on bikesales.com.au but now I do not think I am selling it!! You made me re-think about enjoyment of ride.

    I went Springbrook RD by car on Sat while kids are doing something. I went till Munburra lookout, "The Gourmet Galah". Had a coffee there and thought... Such a nice road if Im with my bike!

    So, Sunday, I went back. Joined this road from Mudgeeraba. Mate, so many nice corners, tight and loose, not many cars nor push bikes. Road was almost clean, not much tree branches or stone chips. Most of corner is visible for the end.This time, went to the last stop, "Best of all lookout". What a nice view there, too.

    From Tweed, it is only 15 minutes, then corners after the corners. Then stylish old cafe and town and great view.

    I will definitely go back that road again.

    Thank you for let me enjoy the Bike ride again!
    Best
