How To Get There

How to get to the Toogoolawah Drop Zone:

From the north:
Follow the Bruce Highway north and take the Caboolture turnoff. Follow the main road through Caboolture. This road becomes the D'Aguilar Highway. Follow this highway through the towns of Wamuran, Woodford and Kilcoy. About ten minutes past Kilcoy, take the Toogoolawah/Esk turnoff on the left straight after the Brisbane River Bridge. You are now on the Brisbane Valley Highway. The Drop Zone is only ten minutes along this highway on the right hand side, before the township of Toogoolawah. You will see the Ramblers Parachute Drop Zone sign. If you find yourself at Toogoolawah you have gone two kilometres too far, come back.

Go through town and follow the signs to Kilcoy. You will travel up and down the Peachester Range, enjoy the rainforest and the views of the Glasshouse Mountains. When you come to a big T-intersection, turn right to head to Kilcoy. This is the D'Aguilar Highway. About ten minutes past Kilcoy, take the Toogoolawah/Esk turnoff on the left straight after the Brisbane River Bridge. You are now on the Brisbane Valley Highway. The Drop Zone is only ten minutes along this highway on the right hand side, before the township of Toogoolawah. You will see the Ramblers Parachute Drop Zone sign. If you find yourself at Toogoolawah you have gone two kilometres too far, come back.

From South Brisbane:
Follow Ipswich Road (Ipswich Motorway) all the way (not quite to Ipswich) and take the Toowoomba Bypass (Warrego Highway). Follow all the signs to Esk. Take the turnoff on the right hand side of the road after Blacksoil. The sign says Esk, Wivenhoe Dam, South Burnett. You are now on the Brisbane Valley Highway. Follow this highway all the way to the Drop Zone's front door! This highway goes through the towns of Fernvale and Esk. When you get to Toogoolawah, don't turn off, keep going two kilometres past the actual township as the Drop Zone is on the highway, on the left hand side.
