The Atherton Tablelands are fast becoming the premier mountain biking area of Queensland. Our region boasts trails to suit all riding levels from family friendly to experienced riders, and we are located within a very short distance from the world renowned Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park.
BIG4 Atherton Woodlands Park is the perfect base from which to explore the Atherton Tablelands; majestic crater lakes, waterfalls, local markets, friendly & historic towns and beautiful scenery.
We are very happy to host mountain bike riders and clubs at our Park. A general map of the trails is available from Reception. Riders who stay with us are welcome to use our purpose built mtb wash-down and service bay and showers even after you've checked out.
For all local mountain bike advice with regards to maps, rides, bike tours and bike repairs we recommend Leasie Felderhof and her team at Bike Linx - they are local mountain bike riders and have a world of knowledge. Chat to Leasie about your next Far North Queensland mtb cycling adventure!
For all local events please visit our "What's On" page.
Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park tracks are purposely built for mountain biking, ranging from easy and intermediate trails to the more difficult. We are very excited to have these trails so close to the Park – come and try them for yourself!
The trails have been built to international standard with Atherton having hosted many large events over the years, including segments of the Croc Trophy; the Subaru Australian Marathon Championships and many local events such as Elev8 and Bike Fest. We are looking forward to the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in September of 2017 bringing over 300 riders to our region --- we are sure some of them will make it up the hill to try out our trails!
You will find a map of the trails below and a video from Tom Emrys-Evans of World Trail.Download Mountain Bike Map
