Explore Ipswich’s Mining History

Rich in local history, Castle Hill has become a local hot spot for Enduro style riding in South East Queensland. You will find remains of a large three story mansion that was built on top of the hill. Work has been progressing in 2020 on a new skills/trials area with toilet facilities as well.

While some trails do cater for beginners, most are predominately blue or black diamond and require a high level of skill & fitness. Expect big rocks, sharp turns and loose dirt. But don’t get us wrong – it’s a heap of fun!
