New Top End Mountain Bike Trail Map


A new Top End mountain bike trail map is available for local and visiting mountain bikers to navigate the shared-use trails at Charles Darwin National Park and Casuarina Coastal Reserve, as part of the NT Government’s $1 million investment in the NT Mountain Bike Master Plan.

Darwin is home to a variety of sealed and unsealed cycle paths where mountain bikers can access our stunning nature parks and reserves. This investment has included the expansion of and upgrades to the trails at Charles Darwin National Park and Casuarina Coastal Reserve.

The new map includes descriptions of the trails, difficulty rating and helpful information. It is available online and from Tourism Top End, The Scooter Shop and Cycle Zone.

A Central Australia map will be developed to cover the East and West Alice Springs trails. With similar distribution to the Top End map, the Central Australia map will also be included in registration bags for entrants in the annual Easter in the Alice and Redback cycling events.

Further maps will be developed to cover new mountain bike and shared-use trails planned for Litchfield National Park and Nitmiluk National Park.

The maps are being produced in collaboration with Parks and Wildlife, Darwin Off-Road Cyclists (DORC), Central Australian Rough Riders (CARR) and Outback Cycling.
