Just a 15 minute drive from the CBD you will find a trail network worth drooling over! With an array of trails suiting everyone from the cross country fanatics to those more prone to gravity enduro scene. One of Queensland’s best flow trails calls Rockhampton home – make sure to ride “Megatron” for some MEGA fun! You can expect a decent amount of climbing, however the switchbacks make it that bit easier. Please note there are a few black & double black diamond trails – these have unavoidable, steep and rocky features and are best ridden with protective gear.
For the best access, the main car park is found at the corner of German St and Sunset Dr, North Rockhampton.
FOOD: Just down the street from the main car park & you’ll find the aptly named; Rocky Mountain Cafe. Not only do they have great lunch & breakfast options but sweet treats too!
THINGS TO DO: The near by Mount Archer National Park is a great spot to explore after your ride and provides spectacular views of the city and the surrounding ranges.
Adventure awaits in the tropical savannah lands
