Alpine mountain bike heavenFalls Creek, Victoria

After many months in lockdown, mountain bike enthusiasts hardly need an excuse to get among it, but they’ll be over the moon to know Falls Creek Mountain Bike Park is ready to rock ’n roll. 

With 40 kilometres of world-class trails, designed and built by World Trail in Victoria's stunning alpine terrain, Falls Creek Mountain Bike Park has been finessed with riders in mind to suit mountain-bikers of all experience levels.

For seasoned riders there’s the lofty altitude of the Summit, with plenty of drops, twists and turns to the thick forest of the Ticket Box. For the fearless, there’s Victoria’s longest unbroken gravity ride descending 535 metres through three of Falls Creek’s best trails. Hang one and hope for the best or, as the bikers say,  “Huck and hope.”

Those with training wheels will enjoy Generator to Vortex, an easy combination ride through Falls Creek’s snowgum country back to the village.

The newest trail, Flowtown, features six kilometres of free-flowing trail. It’s stacked with gnarly berms, jumps and rollers, The final half that rides more like a pump track than gravity trail.

Riding doesn’t float your boat? There are plenty of stunning scenic hikes, trails, fishing and kayaking options in the High Country.
