School Road‚ Redbank Plains

Located just 20 minutes from the Ipswich Central Business District and 35 minutes from Brisbane Central Business District, White Rock – Spring Mountain Conservation Estate features the distinctive, sculptured, rocky outcrops of White Rock and Spring Mountain.

Covering over 2,500 hectares of regionally significant bushland, the Estate also features extensive forested ridges, escarpments and valleys that are home to an amazing array of plant and wildlife species.

Visitors can enjoy the full gamut of outdoor activities including hiking, bird-watching, horse riding (bring your own horse), mountain bike riding and nature study. For the bushwalker, there’s everything from a leisurely 200 metre walk to the more challenging 19 kilometre round trip trail, with most of the trails suitable for hiking and mountain bike riding. If you’re on horseback, then the Yaddamun Trail is perfect.

The entry to the Estate is the Paperbark Flats Picnic Area, at the end of School Road in Redbank Plains. Amenities on site include toilets, picnic facilities and horse float parking. Don’t forget to take a hat, sunscreen and drinking water.

*This Estate remains sacred to the Traditional Owners of Ipswich.  Some of the Cultural Landscapes within this estate include White Rock, the caves and outcrop overhangs.  These sacred sites are very important to the Traditional Owners as they provide a link between Country and personal identity and allow the passing on of cultural knowledge.

As per Cultural Protocol the Traditional Owners have requested no one climbs White Rock.  The picture above depicts views from the Main Ridge Lookout.
