Track Description

Easy, 10km to 30km

Great short 4x4 track to get to O'rielly's rather than the black top twisty Rd from Canungra. Very enjoyable drive through some lovely country with great views. One gate at bottom with a donation request.

Dont use your GPS to find the start of Duck Creek Rd, youll end up on a dead end road. Find Kerry Rd instead, travel south for a couple of K's then do another search for Duck Creek Rd. It will then find the correct route. The turnoff is to the left off Kerry Rd, its signposted so you cant miss it if you dont have a GPS

2009-05-24 Mitsubishi Pajero Easy track, nice views. Some small river crossings.
2008-11-20 Mitsubishi Pajero A very pleasant alternative to the normal road to O'Riellys.
2009-01-31 Toyota Prado It is nice country road trip requiring clearance, so 4wd and soft-roaders can easierly do the road. Signs recommend this to be driven in the dry. I prefer this road for the home trip back to Brisbane
2009-09-07 Toyota Prado N/A
2009-09-12 Subaru Forester Great Track. Way better than the windy normal road normally takes you to O'Rielys.
2009-12-29 Toyota Hilux Went through this track quite quickly as i was running low on diesel, but thought it was a nice track and not too tough. Credit to all those that gave up their time to help make it! and keep it open!
2010-01-23 Toyota Hilux Not very hard, but was a nice drive and quite leasurely.
2010-01-24 Nissan Patrol Nice easy drive up to O'Rielly's. I think in the wet it could be alot harder. Don't forget to leave a donation at the box.

2010-09-26 Kia Sorrento lots of fun. slightly muddy today
2010-10-17 Mitsubishi Challenger Have been waiting to do this track for a few weeks now but the 200mls of rain in the area over the past week have put a stop to it until today. Track very rutted at the bottom stage but overall a very easy and enjoyable trip for a newbee to 4 wheel driving. Magnificient views along the way from the various lookout points. Cheers Brent
2010-11-21 Toyota Hilux Surf good day out and some real nice views, had fun in the rainforest at the top in the wet.
2011-02-05 Ford Ranger Good drive good lookouts
2011-02-06 Mitsubishi Challenger Really good track easy to drive great views a few water wash outs at the bottom but apart from that was great not hard at all. turn the aircon and radio off and put the windows down you will enjoy the sounds of the forest.
2011-02-20 Mitsubishi Triton Great drive. Great lookouts. Not hard at all.
2009-03-28 Suzuki Grand Vitara I love this track. Easy trip. Great views. Always quiet when I go there. Some idiots had left a pile of rubbish at the top picnic/parking area so took it with me to O'Reilley's and dropped it off there.
2011-04-02 Jeep Wrangler Track open, a few washouts at the bottom, but all up a great track and by far the best way to get to O'Reillys.
2011-04-02 Holden Rodeo Great views, very easy and enjoyable drive. Recommended for a fun family day out, with a picnic and some bushwalking once at O'Reilly's.
2011-04-24 Toyota Landcruiser Great track. It started raining very heavy on the way up and became very muddy and very slippery very quickly.If tackling this from the top down you should note the signpost for Duck Creek Road is only visible if coming down from O'Reillys
2011.06.04 Mitsubishi Pajero Have done this track many times, always enjoy this being a few ruts from washouts, sections of water. Still easy road...great for the first timer. Remember to stop along the way and soak up the scenery....
2011-06-05 Toyota Hilux Great track not too far from home. Went up and back down. Much better going this way than the black top.
2011-06-05 Toyota Landcruiser Nice Easy Track. Great Day Out
2011-06-11 Nissan Patrol Very easy trail with no ruts or wash to contend with, and plenty of awesome views. Views were better this way than the black top, which we took the way down. Short and east and a great day trip from Brisbane.
2011-06-19 Nissan Patrol Went up there today and it was an easy run. only put it in to high 4wd for about 100m and probably didnt need to do that if i had dropped the pressures. Can see where some idiots have gone just off the track and chewed it up. Craig
2011-06-25 Toyota Landcruiser great scenery, track in okay condition. easy track
2011-12-10 Ford Ranger Had a good time
2012-01-01 Jeep Cherokee Went up the Duck Crk Rd and down the road to Canungra after coffee at O'reillys, 5 hr round trip from Bne. In the dry was easy with good line.
2011-12-20 Toyota Hilux This track offers great views and I would say, suits beginners when dry The drive is not so much of a challenge but when I went, there were some large rocks on the track that had only recently dislodged from the cliffs above due to rain. Has some great picnic spots along the way.
2012-01-15 Suzuki Grand Vitara This was the first track I did in my new Suzuk Grand Vitara. Was a good track, easy work on the car. There were a few idiots ripping up the track in dodgy utes but other than that all in all a good trip.
2012-01-29 Ford Ranger Tried this track today was very wet which was going alright still not too difficult as long as your not being an idiot. Halfway through road was blocked from a landslide so had to backtrack. Would like to try again in dryer conditions to go around the landslide. Great views
2012-05-19 Suzuki Sierra Did this both directions today, was a good day out, not hard at all, never actually felt the need to lock in the hubs. There's a few challenging sections off the side that i wouldn't mind trying if i have a second car as backup. I can see how it would be a nice challenge in the wet too.
2012-06-09 Mitsubishi Pajero Track was open despite 'Road Closed' sign at bottom of Kerry Road. Few deep ruts on the climb up, however nothing choosing the correct line didn't fix. Great track.
2012-08-18 Mitsubishi Outlander Did this track today with an Outlander. Due to washouts its definitely on the limit for this type of cars, but was a nice ride, great weather, enjoyed it....
2012-08-15 Toyota FJ Cruiser First time in the drivers seat of my new FJ Cruiser offroad - was a breeze, a great introduction to four wheel driving. Nice scenic route up to O'Reilly's with plenty of photo opportunities along the way.
2012-09-01 Mitsubishi Pajero Bit rougher than expected, lots of ruts but did it easy in 4H. Probably not suited to soft roaders at the moment.
2012-09-10 Toyota FJ Cruiser N/A
2012-09-15 Mitsubishi Challenger Nice drive some good ruts cant wait for some rain then try it again.
2012-09-15 Mitsubishi Challenger Nice drive some good ruts cant wait for some rain then try it again.
2012-09-1 Toyota FJ Cruiser Went with a group of 6 other FJ Cruisers, picked some more challenging lines this time and was a good chance to try out low range and A-TRAC. Still a very enjoyable track!
2012-09-15 Holden Colorado Great arvo out and about
2012-11-24 LandRover Discovery They've started grading the road so its nice and smooth down the bottom. New gates installed as well. Great day trip.
2013-04-09 Mitsubishi Challenger Went here only 2 weeks after purchasing our new Challenger XLS 2012. Easy 4wd track for beginners (like myself). Don't need anything fancy. Just take your time and choose a good line. There are some deep ruts if you want the challenge.
2013-07-14 Nissan Navara easy drive, started raining on the way up, but no probs. some soft roaders doing it at the same time.
2013-08-04 Toyota Hilux Easy Track, no need for low range, a bit chewed up in one area due to recent rains. Great views.
2013-08-17 Ford Ranger Went up with a mate who had driven this track before, he was in his Suzuki. Very easy track, my mate reckons they have graded it again as there were less ruts than the last time he went up. Great views, worth the drive.
2013-06 Ssangyong Musso N/A
2013-08-22 Mitsubishi Pajero great easy track, much better than following the black stuff up to O'reilly's retreat
2014-02-15 Mitsubishi Pajero Good fun. Should be interesting after rain.
2014-02-23 Suzuki Sierra Easy track. Good fun!
2014-04-18 Nissan Pathfinder Went today with our Pathfinder and Dad's Prado. Did a few side tracks which were a bit more adventurous. Had a great time and a great day. Saw plenty of AWDs on the main road, but not on the side tracks. Definitely recommended for beginners like us!
2014-08-09 Mitsubishi Triton This was my first time on this track, and the first non-beach driving in my new Triton Dual Cab auto. The track took about 1 hour to travel including stopping to admire the view along the way. Well worth it! My Triton is stock standard at the moment and handled the track easily, although it may be different after rain. The day we went up the track, there was a Fun Run going on, so we had to take care around the runners, but it was no bother. All in all, a good track in the dry to test your skills and vehicle without too much risk of something going wrong.
2014-08-31 Toyota Landcruiser Easy track with some good views. Went up from Beaudesert, then did the tree top walk. Came down via the tar.. Shouldn't have bothered with the tar too many idiots. Also don't forget to put some money in the donation box at the bottom! I opened the gate for a car and a motorbike that just went past and didn't put anything in the honesty box.. Bit disappointing
2014-09-15 Toyota Landcruiser N/A
2014-11-02 Holden Colorado Good day out did the uphill and downhill. Was late in the afternoon and it was fairly quiet. Second time on this track, its definitely a bit rougher than the last time maybe 12 months ago but was more fun this time. Really dry. Testing the new colorado out and hit a couple of side tracks that were a little more challenging but also had multiple options if certain sections looked a bit deep. This is a better way to get down than the black top which seems to take forever.
2014-11-02 Mitsubishi Triton Great track and day for first 4x4 experience. Nice and easy with some harder stuff on the side.
2014-10-12 Toyota Landcruiser Nice little track up and back.
2015-01-04 Toyota Landcruiser N/A
2015-04-12 Holden Colorado Main track easy, even in a stock road car. Side tracks are where the fun is
