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 DoT) and you must wear a helmet.
The area is under the control of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation & Attractions (DBCA) 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.
