Gondwana is excited to announce the addition of 4 new mountain bike trails to its 1000 ha protected area where guests can enjoy game viewing of endangered species while breaking a sweat in the saddle. These newly cut routes are graded from novice to advanced, and have been designed for all levels of fitness to enjoy. The routes consist of varied terrain from dirt roads and jeep tracks to long valley descents and steep technical climbs.
Routes are as follows:
Red Route – 7.44km – Novice Rating
This route is on Reserve dirt roads, and great for the whole family to enjoy.
Blue Route – 8.62km – Intermediate Rating
This route has a short bit of Reserve Roads in the beginning and the end, and then goes on to Jeep Tracks, then a long decent down the valley, some loose areas, then climbs back up towards the Milkwood Roads. A good fitness level is required as there is a good 2,5km of climbing as well as some technical sections, so previous experience is essential.
Green Route – 10.4km – Advanced Rating
This route follows the Blue Route on the descent and then halfway on the climb out of the valley, it turns left and drops down and then runs along the hills and has a very steep climb. This route is definitely for more experienced riders.
Orange Route – 2km loop off the Green Route so 12,4km – Advanced Rating
This is off the green route and is an advanced loop with some steep climbs and then joins back onto the green route. Again, for Experienced and fit riders.
* All of the Mountain Bike Routes can also be used for trail running.
We have 8 Mountain Bikes and helmets available for Guests to use. These are all made by Giant, and 6 of the bikes are 29-inch bikes (bigger wheel than the conventional 26inch), and we have 2 x 24 inch Kids bikes (up to 12 years can ride). Bike hire is free of charge for guests staying at Gondwana.
All of the bikes are housed in the Activity Shed, which is situated in the Protected area, just off the Milkwood road ( There is signage from the Red Rocks gate.)
