We noticed there is a ticket fee for the Sunday Beach run this year why is that?
This year’s Beach Run ticket price includes a Breakfast, Lunch, 1 raffle ticket and a limited edition Go Topless Day 2019 Decal. We think $10 for all that is a pretty good deal. The small ticket price of $10 per vehicle (regardless of no. of occupants) also helps us cover insurance and other costs on the day.
If I purchase a Maleny Camping Ticket does this include the Sunday Beach Run?
What are the payment methods for purchasing Tickets?
Credit Card, via Paypal ( you don’t need a Paypal account) or Bank Transfer, we have chosen these methods as it allows us to process transactions easily for both participants and JeepFreakz QLD.
Can I purchase Tickets on the day / weekend?
Yes, however we much prefer tickets are pre-purchased so we can lock in numbers prior to the event. These include catering, QLD State Government Permits and General Logistics. Tickets will be available for purchase at the event. Raffle tickets and other items will also be available.
Can I just do the Friday and Saturday Foresty Tracks and not the Sunday Beach?
Yes, however we would encourage everyone to do the beach run if they can. This is the world famous part of the event. Please note – Ticket Prices will be the same.
What Meals are included with the Maleny Camping Tickets?
We will provide a USA style BBQ on the Saturday night. For all attendees there will also be the Sunday Breakfast and Lunch as part of the Beach run. All other meals are to be organized yourself. We would encourage everyone to visit some of the amazing food outlets and local businesses in Maleny. All of these are short walk or drive from the showgrounds.
I am Vegetarian / Vegan will you have options available?
Yes we will, but we ask that you please advise us prior to the event when booking your ticket or via email so that we can cater for you and have enough on hand.
Is there an age limit for attendees?
Whilst we will not be imposing an age limit, for those participating in the Forestry Runs we would remind everyone that off-road driving can be at times an activity that involves increased risk. We would ask participants to take this into consideration when deciding who is in the vehicle with them. In saying that we are 100% family friendly and encourage the whole family to attend.
What is the track grading of the Forestry Runs?
There will be 3 levels of difficulty across a range of tracks. But please note participation will be at the Trip Leaders discretion.
- Easy – These tracks will generally be very easy and good basic knowledge and some experience will be needed.
- Medium – A reasonable level of previous experience. Minimum vehicle equipment – AT tyres would be preferable.
- Hard/Night Run – These tracks will have technical difficulties and will require previous experience to participate. Minimum vehicle equipment – no standard highway tyres, winch and/or diff locks, minimum 2 inch lift. Sufficient Lighting (If doing the Friday night run only)
What facilities are available at Maleny Showgrounds?

- Campfires in Supplied Rings Only
- Skate Ramp, Ovals for playing sport etc.
Can I leave my camping gear/caravan/camper at the showgrounds on the Sunday whilst we do the beach run.
Yes we have the park booked until lunchtime on the Monday. So after the beach run you can swing past and collect your gear.
Can I stay longer at Maleny Showgrounds
Yes, we have the Showgrounds booked from Friday 17th May Morning until Monday 20th May lunchtime. If you wish to stay longer either prior or after the event you are certainly welcome too and just need to pay the caretakers for this separately
