OUR REGION

World-class mountain biking with a World Heritage backdrop

Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef is the most popular regional destination in Australia for international visitors and the only place with two World Heritage areas side by side – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest.

Our tropical climate means you can tackle the array of mountain bike trails at any time of the year! Even during the peak of summer, you can escape the heat and humidity in the Atherton Tablelands, high in the hinterland above Cairns. From the thrill-seeker to the recreational rider, our extensive trail network has something for everyone.

Access is easy with Cairns Airport a 10-minute drive from the city centre and 20 minutes from the iconic rainforest trails at Smithfield Regional Park. More than 600 tours depart each day to the reef, rainforest, beaches and outback, ensuring non-biking friends and family enjoy a fun holiday too!
