Moggill Regional Park is 22km west of central Brisbane on the outskirts of Pullenvale and Anstead.
There is a small car park beside Chalcot Road, which is north off Mount Crosby Road, and the shared trails can be accessed from this point.
There is no public transport to Moggill Regional Park.
There is no access for wheelchairs.
This 491ha park forms part of the D’Aguilar Range, a bushland corridor that extends north to Woodford. The corridor provides valuable habitat for wildlife as well as a place for people to enjoy nature-based activities such as bushwalking, cycling and horseriding.
Camping is not permitted in Moggill Regional Park.
There is a range of holiday accommodation in and around Brisbane. For more information see the tourism information links.

Walking, cycling and horseriding
Explore the network of management roads on foot, by horse or bike. Walking, cycling and horseriding are permitted on all management roads in the regional park unless otherwise signed.
When using the shared track system, pedestrians and cyclists must give way to horseriders and alert others when approaching them.
To help reduce your impact on our natural areas please:
- Do not allow horses to enter or remain in or near natural watercourses
- Ride only on formed roads and trails designated for riding; do not take shortcuts
- Do not allow horses to remain in the park overnight
- Avoid spreading weeds—ensure horses’ coats, hooves and equipment are free of seeds and that horses don’t feed on invasive species 48 hours before park visits
- Minimise damage to vegetation. Do not allow horses to graze on any vegetation while in the area.
For more information about horseriding in protected areas or to access a map, visit the SEQ horseriding trail network page.
- Always wear a helmet.
- Plan ahead; ride within your ability and according to track conditions.
- Slow down and consider other track users.
- Avoid riding in large groups.
- Avoid riding on soft, wet and muddy tracks.
- Ride only on formed roads. Do not take shortcuts or form new tracks as this damages the environment and causes erosion.
- Respect areas closed to riding.
The park provides vital habitat for a number of threatened bird species, such as the vulnerable black-breasted button-quail Turnix melanogaster and the near threatened black-chinned honeyeater Melithreptus gularis.
Sheltered pockets of vine thicket along the creek provide the perfect hideaway for the shy and secretive eastern whipbird Psophodes olivaceus. Heard more often than seen, its loud birdsong is a duet; the male provides the first drawn-out note and musical ‘whip-crack’ before the female follows with a whistling ‘chew-chew’.
Moggill Regional Park is also home to bandicoots, koalas and lace monitors, so keep an eye out.
