Using off-road vehicles and motorbikes on private land
Off-road trail bikes, motorbikes and vehicles can only be used on private land where there isn't an issue with local health laws, such as noise or dust. You must also make sure you have the owner's or occupier's consent.
Rules for using off-road vehicles and motorbikes
Using or riding off road vehicles on Council managed land is strictly prohibited and can result in infringements or Court prosecution. This also applies to private land where no consent has been given by the owner or tenant to operate on the property.
Riding off road motorcycles on the road when they are not road licensed is an offence under the Road Traffic Act and is a Police matter carrying significant penalties.
