Set out on a two-wheeled adventure in the southern section of D'Aguilar National Park, where hundreds of kilometres of trail crisscross the landscape.

Two popular routes include the 22km one-way South Boundary Road trail and the 25km Audax loop—just keep a look out for road and junction signs marking where mountain bike access isn’t allowed.

Make a weekend of it and stay at one of five remote bush camps— Scrub Road bush camp, Light Line Road bush camp, Dundas Road bush camp, England Creek bush camp and Northbrook Mountain bush camp are located along the trails.

More detail about the mountain bike trail network is provided in the South D'Aguilar forest trail map and the D'Aguilar National Park topographic map, available for purchase from the Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre at The Gap.

Camping

Cycling

  • You need a high level of fitness for some sections of the trail network. There are long and physically-demanding climbs.
  • Cyclists riding downhill must give way to cyclists riding uphill. Make sure to control your speed on the descents, especially near steep edges.
  • Some trails in the park are shared trails for cyclists, walkers and horseriders, so please give way to keep you and others safe.
  • Bring a compass and topographic map as this area is remote with few signs to guide you.
  • Always tell a responsible person of your plans and expected return time so they can contact the police if you are overdue.
  • We recommend cycling in cooler weather only, usually April to September. Cycling during summer can be hazardous due to high temperatures and the associated risk of heat-related illnesses.
  • Read mountain bike and cycle with care for tips on riding safety and riding with care.
