Hundreds of kilometres of trails for riders of every skill level
With more than 700 kilometers of documented mountain bike trails, Cairns offers a diverse experience for both recreational and competitive riders. Cairns is the entry point for five exciting mountain bike hubs where you can ride trails exploring the rainforest, mountains, beaches, and accessible outback.
• Smithfield Mountain Bike Trail Park has 60km of trails sculpted into the rainforest. These range from gateway trails designed to entice beginners through to intermediate and technically advanced trails for the enthusiast.
• Kuranda DH Trail is slated as Australia’s oldest running DH trail. What started as a rough, underground and little known myth in the Kuranda hills soon spawned a generation of World-Cup athletes, thousands of tales and eventually becoming the region’s first officially recognised recreational DH trail outside of the Smithfield MTB Park.
• Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park has an exciting network of mountain biking trails with beginner and intermediate options. Around this area are diverse mountain bike trails allowing you to explore national parks and forestry land taking in waterfalls and lakes.
• Davies Creek Trail Network near Mareeba is a Tropical North Queensland wilderness experience, only a 40 minute drive from Cairns but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here you can end your ride with a cool swim in Davies Creek.
• The Cassowary Coast boasts mountain bike trails through shady rainforest or head to the beach and ride along kilometers of flat sand with views to Dunk Island.
