Exciting News! The Bunya Mountains MTB were completed in July 2023 and are ready to ride.

The trails are very well constructed and great fun to ride.  There is nothing like riding through the sub-tropical rainforest of the Bunya Mountains.

The site is easily accessible from both the Downs and Burnett loops of the Downs Burnett Cycle Trail, so go for a ride when you are in the area.
