Overview

Mountain biking

Leave the road behind and plough headlong into the pristine wilderness that surrounds the Great Ocean Road. Take a deep breath and then enjoy a thrill ride through the lush rainforest, hinterland and native bushland that make up the stunning Otways Ranges. Choose from purpose-built mountain bike tracks and undulating terrain that's just crying out to be explored.

Purpose-built mountain bike trails
Check out the Forrest Trails, considered to be some of the best in Australia. Take your pick of fifteen mountain bike trails, spanning more than 40 kilometres, which cut through the bush terrain of the Great Otway National Park. Test your skills and speed as you pass through tall eucalypt forests and dense fern gullies, encountering everything from downhill runs, climbs and jumps to berms, logs and narrow gaps.

Perfect your jumps at the Anglesea Bike Park Mountain Cross Track, Victoria's first professionally designed loop and jumps track. Or for a more relaxed cycling adventure, take a slow ride along the Old Beechy Rail Trail.

Other off-road opportunities
Delve into the scenic bushy surrounds of Anglesea on one of many local mountain bike trails. Popular rides include: Beach View and Kangaroos Trail, Best of Anglesea Ride, Wildflower and Wattle Ride, and Anglesea Heath Mountain Bike Adventure.
