11. Petter Scot skate park

This small park is great for young kids between the ages of 5-8 and beginner BMX riders. It’s a great park for kids in the afternoon to practice some small jumps or ride around the little pump track. It will keep young kids and beginners entertained for a few hours. However, the facilities in the park aren’t big enough to support a large birthday party or experienced riders. Don’t get me wrong, this park is great for the afternoon, but I would recommend the bigger BMX parks for birthday parties or older riders.

Address: Muriel Ave, Moorooka QLD 4105

12. Meakin park pump track

The Meakin park pump track is a very small track for very young kids just beginning BMX riding. This park contains only one small pump track for riders. However, don’t let this turn you away. Meakin park pump track is a great place to learn how to start BMX riding without getting in the way of older riders. And as a parent if you’re in the area and need to kill some time, definitely give this park a try.

Address: Meakin Rd near, Queens Rd, Slacks Creek QLD 4127

13. Redlands BMX club

The Redlands BMX club is one of my favourite BMX communities for all skill levels. The club is so friendly and treats all kids with respect no matter how experienced or novice they are. The tracks and facilities are kept to a high standard ensuring you will never be disappointed. And even when it is closed the main track is still accessible but the toilets and starting gate are locked. So, if your kids are looking for a BMX community definitely check out Redlands BMX club.

Address: Degen Rd and Mount Cotton Rd, Capalaba QLD 4157

With a large trail variety for all ages and BBQ, toilets, and picnic facilities, there is something for everyone. The tracks are very well made, and kids of all ages will have lots of fun. Having visited many times in the holidays, my personal tips would be to go early to beat the crowds and get the picnic facilities as they fill up quickly.

Address: Redland Bay QLD 4165

16. Charlie Buckler Memorial sportsground – BMX track

The Charlie Buckler Memorial BMX track is a small pump track for younger kids. The track does not have any challenging jumps for experienced riders so older riders may get bored quickly. With no picnic facilities the Charlie Buckler Memorial BMX track would not be able to accommodate for a party. This track is good for an afternoon but if you are looking for something larger, I would recommend other parks, such as Days Road BMX track or Redlands BMX club.

Address: Redland Bay QLD 4165

17. Wellington Street Park BMX facility

The Wellington Street Park BMX facility is, as the name suggested, a great place for BMX riding. To get the most out of this park your kids should be experienced riders. There are lots of jumps that are not available at other parks, and your kids will have an opportunity to experiment with harder tricks in a safe environment. However even if your kids are not experienced riders, they can still have fun on the smaller jumps. The park’s facilities are well made and always maintained to a high standard. So, if you’re in the area, I would definitely recommend giving this park a try.

Address: Cleveland QLD 4163

18. Runaway Bay skate park

Runaway Bay skate park is an awesome park for all ages to BMX ride when your kids want to do tricks. There are lots of jumps and a great skate bowl so all ages can ride together in harmony. However, there is no pump track for dirt bike riding so keep this in mind. My advice would be to beat the crowds and get there so your kids get the best out of this amazing skate park.

Address: 385 Oxley Dr, Runaway Bay QLD 4216

19. Russell Island BMX park

This BMX Park is great for kids more interested in dirt bike and pump track riding than BMX tricks. With a well put together dirk bike and pump track, children of all ages will be entertained long into the afternoon. This track is set up in a great central location on the island and provided tons of shade for parents to set up a picnic. And the best thing is, this park is almost never busy so you can turn up any time.
