Pinjar

Pinjar is a large (300Ha+) area that is open to motorcycles and quads of all engine capacities.

You don't need a road-registered bike, or a drivers' licence to ride at Pinjar, but if your bike is not road registered you must have Off Road Vehicle registration (available from DPI) and you must wear a helmet.

The area is under the control of the Department of Parks and Wildlife and consists of pine plantations and open cleared scrubland. The area has undergone extensive redevelopment and there are now several signed and surfaced one-way trails.

 Current status -

  • Redevelopment of this area is underway.  See Pinjar Project for details.

RTRA POSITION

 Pinjar is developing as an excellent off-road vehicle area.

We support DPaW's plans to re-develop the area and urge the Government to invest in creating a true "Trail bike park".  RTRA will assist by supporting and managing a volunteer "Friends of Pinjar" group.

 
ALERTS

Temporary closures are possible April-June due to prescribed burns in the area. Please check Status on the RTRA Home Page before heading to Pinjar.
