Queensland Moto Park expecting record rider numbers for Easter Holidays
Australia's newest trail bike park, the Queensland Moto Park at Wyaralong in South East Queensland is expecting the highest number of riders ever to converge on the park for the Easter School holidays since opening in December 2011 which has so far seen 8,575 riders in the first 3 months of operation.

Queensland Moto Park (QMP) will be open every day of the Easter School holidays which will include all public holidays, mirroring the Christmas holiday period which proved more successful than predicted with over 1000 riders per week of the holiday period. So successful were the Christmas holidays that on the fourth day of operation the QMP staff were overwhelmed with a single day usage of 322 riders.

Queensland Moto Park's Manager, Ray Buchanan says that the QMP staff expect an even busier Easter holiday period now that the wider trail riding community knows about the Moto Park.

"If the Christmas holidays are any indication, the Easter break will be just as impressive if not better. Last Sunday (1/4/2012) we broke our record with 363 riders arrive at QMP and we now have a limit of 350 riders per day" Buchanan said.

QMP developed an online booking system to improve queuing times for riders signing in and also to assist the Moto Park's staffing for the high volume of riders on weekends and holidays. With expectations of up to 350 riders per day over Easter, it is even more important to book online to guarantee a ride on the day a rider chooses.

Queensland Moto Park is also in a position to continue job growth of the local community, requiring support riders and casual employees during the busy Easter period. With over 40 kilometres of Enduro Trails, QMP requires riders with MA licences or Officials with a minimum Practice Supervisor accreditation to help with managing the high rider numbers on the trails.

The Queensland Moto Park at Wyaralong is continuing to be developed as a joint initiative between the Queensland Government, Council of Mayors (SEQ) and Motorcycling Queensland.
