Welcome to Ride Cairns

The spectacular Cairns & Great Barrier Reef region is the only place where you can go mountain biking through World Heritage-listed rainforest, tackle trails designed to challenge world champions or peddle leisurely along the edge of the waters of the Great Barrier Reef.

This world-class mountain biking destination in Tropical North Queensland is the home of Australia’s first world championship venue and will be hosting three international mountain biking events – the 2014 and 2016 UCI Mountain Bike World Cups and the 2017 UCI World Mountain Bike and Trials Championships.

The world’s oldest, toughest and most adventurous race, the Crocodile Trophy, and the iconic RRR Mountain Bike Challenge also are held in the region each year.

Recreational mountain bikers and families also will discover trails to match their ability, with purpose-built mountain bike parks and forest trails offering a range of options. Cairns & Great Barrier Reef has five unique mountain biking regions to explore.

- Cairns / Smithfield Trails

- Atherton Tablelands trails

- Mareeba trails

- Port Douglas / Daintree Trails

- Cassowary Coast Trails
