KENILWORTH & IMBUL STATE FOREST, QLD

KENILWORTH & IMBIL STATE FOREST

We took an easy 90 minute drive north of Brisbane via Landsborough (or you can take a scenic, twisty 2 hr drive via Caboolture) and had a great day trip to Kenilworth. Imbil State Forest has a great range of tracks for all experience, capabilities, and all 4wd types, but don’t be alarmed as not only has Imbil State Forest got some great 4wd tracks but also includes great camping, swimming and the scenery is magical.

Gorgeous weather, great company, beautiful scenery, and challenging fun 4WD drives – we couldn’t’ have asked for more over the weekend where everyone had lots of fun, chatter, driving, and greeting and meeting new friends. Lots joined in the Saturday morning kick off with 29 cars joining in on a half day scenic drive through the Kenilworth mountain 4WD forest tracks starting from base camp and headed through to Charlie Moreland camp area and popped out at Booloumba Creek.
Half the group got lost, including us, on route, though through a very scenic route and got to do some challenging 4WD sections again, that the other half missed out on! The scenery amongst Imbil State Forest has a full range of vegetation with rain forest, eucalypt trees, creeks and other spectacular scenery. From the top of the ranges you will get some magnificent views over the valleys and the rest of the State Forest.
As you are driving around, keep your eyes open for wildlife as it is in abundance throughout most of the Forest. There is also a number of walking tracks which are a great alternative way to see the scenery and stretch your legs from all that driving.The afternoon was left for everyone to have a rest, chat with Jason and Simon from All 4 Adventure, and get cooking for the cooking competition.
Raffle tickets were sold for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) with lots of great TJM gear as the raffle prizes, which was generously donated by TJM Head Office. We also had a participant who very generously donated an 80 watt solar panel. Everyone was very generous with $500 raised for the RFDS, and we had some…

Imbil State Forest is a great place to 4wd and camp with many other locations nearby which are just as good such as Conondale National Forest, Jimna State Forest and Amamoor State Forest; you can spend a long time exploring this great country side.

We started our blog “tony&kimoutdooradventures.blogspot.com”, in 2015 after our great 5 week adventure in Europe. We’ve had so many adventures, we decided to start a blog to capture and show our family and close friends in Australia and many Overseas on what we get up to. On our sometimes long work days we realized most of the travel blogs we were reading were people who had quit their jobs, sold all of their belongings and travel full-time. While this way of life is admirable, it’s not reality for a lot of people so we created this space on the internet as a way to show others you can have the best of both worlds. We are happily married for 10+ years and both of us have great challenging and rewarding jobs and a house almost paid off. Plus in 2016 we added our Kelpie pup Shari to our Adventures. Travelling is an expense that brings us happiness, joy and helps create lasting memories. Travelling with that special someone in your life makes those adventures all the more memorable. Our Adventures are all about taking each experience, regardless if you know the outcome or not and facing it head on. Its about seeing the world from a different perspective, even if you’ve seen it a million times before. It is choosing to see the beauty from the ordinary and finding ways on how to do it differently. We get out every opportunity to explore our Town of Brisbane, State of Queensland and Country of Australia; Markets, Festivals, Concerts, Stage Shows, Beaches, Hinterland, Rainforests, History and Shopping. We also love getting 2+ hours out of the City of Brisbane to Camp, explore and enjoy the quietness. We enjoy putting technology away and enjoy the company of each other. We have already explored many parts of Australia from Cape York in Queensland to The Great Ocean Road in Victoria. Tasmania, Perth-Fremantle, Sydney, Melbourne, NT, many places in Queensland and Queensland Outback. We have enjoyed overseas destinations in London, Amsterdam, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, France, Spain, Dubai and Singapore. We also take time out to give back to the community in volunteering. We were privileged to be chosen as Games Shapers for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. We also help out many Breast Cancer charity walks and rides. Giving up our time is rewarding and uplifting experience some people will never experience. With many day and weekend trips away we always set aside a major trip each year. We are looking forward to our 12 Day New Zealand Cruise at the start of 2019.
