Hone your BMX skills at one of Brisbane’s best BMX Parks at Darra. The Darra BMX park is suited to everyone from beginner riders to professional BMX riders. This is a free BMX course open to the community for those wanting to practice their tricks or just have fun riding around the track.
There are 2 different loops for riders (for kids and then for those who are older) and 3 options on each loop with entry-level, intermediate and advanced runs which is great for parents who have kids of varying ages and abilities. While it is mainly used by bike riders, it is also perfect for scooters and challenging for more experienced skateboarders.
There is a massive fig tree near the track where you could set up a picnic blanket and relax while your older kids have fun on the BMX tracks.
BMX Safety: Safety gear is a must. At minimum riders should be wearing a helmet, enclosed shoes and comfortable clothing. Pop a first aid kit in the car and plenty of water for your thirsty riders.

The Monier Park Playground
For parents with BMX riders and kids of younger ages, you will love the playground which sits alongside this amazing Brisbane BMX track. Featuring a colourful ninja-style playspace, the playground also has a shaded sitting area and swings.
Another playground nearby that we have enjoyed is Tom O’Neill Park which offers swings, slides and a flying fox.
Where: The Darra BMX facility is located in the north-eastern section, close to the Monier Road Park’s existing playground, and can be accessed via Monier Road.
