For anyone serious about mountain biking Mt Buller is considered a must-do experience. Unique among mountain biking destinations in Australia, Mt Buller offers both world-class cross-country and gravity trails, in the stunning surrounds of the Australian Alps. There is little wonder why Mt Buller Bike Park is one of Australia’s hottest ride destinations.
Mt Buller Bike Park is home to several firsts in Aussie mountain biking, including Australia’s first flow trail, Copperhead, and the Southern Hemisphere’s first and only IMBA Epic Trail, the infamous 46km descending cross-country trail, the Australian Alpine Epic.

The modular Pump Track, made up of 88 interchangeable parts and 102 liner metres of rideable surface is also an Australian first. Featuring numerous bumps, jumps, and berms, the track is ridden using weight shifts, (also known as pumping, hence the name) to ride the course continuously without pedalling and gravity to drive momentum.
From Saturday 31 October the mountain biking and walking trails progressively reopen, with the full network scheduled to open by 5 December. Dust off your bike, pull out the walking shoes and enjoy the fresh air and views across Mt Buller and Mt Stirling and all the way to the valley below.

Our crews are working hard on the ground across Copperhead, International and Misty Twist so those trails will have to remain partially closed for a little bit longer. If you’re looking to scratch your itch for an advance trail, Stonefly and the Epic are still open and are eagerly awaiting.
The lower part of Copperhead is accessible via the back of the Alpine Central building on Summit Road for those eager. The bottom part of International is open and accessible via the merge from Outlaw on Damn Run.
Our own outdoor crews have been working hard on the brush cutters, scaling back the vegetation on the trails for smoother edges and neater turns. There message from being out on the trails ‘sit tight, exciting stuff is coming’.
With some knarly weather predicted on the forecast for the end of the week, be sure to ride safe and be aware of changing conditions.
Our entire MTB trail network will be fully refurbished through the 2021/22 Summer season, thanks to a $1.25m grant funding from the Victorian Government’s Regional Tourism Infrastructure Fund. Taking place over the next several months, the MTB trail network is getting groomed, developed, and manicured to perfection, but until they're ready, there will be the occasional trail closure across the MTB trail network. We encourage all riders to inspect the new trails before committing to an extreme run of the trail.
