Did you know that Alice Springs has some of the best mountain bike tracks and scenery you will ever experience? Well the secret is definitely out. If you are a mountain bike enthusiast or just enjoy a ride, there are trails to
suit all fitness and adventure levels.
It is very special just to wake up at daybreak in Alice Springs and experience the the amazing sunrises but imagine being out on your bike as the skies begin to lighten from a pre-dawn grey to explode into magnificent oranges and reds as the first rays of sunlight hit the ground and surrounds. This is truly a special time to be on your bike.
When first arriving in Alice Springs you may be deceived into thinking that the trails are all the same, flat, desert trails but this is furthest from the truth. Once you start, you will be amazed by the mixed terrain of rock, quartz, sand and shale plus the miles of visibility you have all around. And did we mention the wildlife? Kangaroos, lizards, wedged-tail eagles and bearded dragons are just the start. This is truly a unique experience.
Every year Alice Springs plays host to the Mountain Bike Muster. This is the world’s only three-day mountain bike stage race and every year continues to attract more and more riders from around Australia and the world to experience the magnificence of Alice Springs and the mountain bike trails.
At Big4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park we welcome mountain bike riders every year for this event and all year round just to enjoy the trail riding. We have had so many mountain bike visitors we chose to build our own service area where riders can service their bikes. This has been a great addition to the park’s offering and one which has been greatly appreciated by visitors.
