Cardwell Tropical Mountain Bike Network

Project overview

The Queensland Government is supporting the Cassowary Coast Regional Council’s investigations into a locally-driven proposal for a new mountain bike trail network in Cardwell, North Queensland.

In 2020, we matched Council’s $50,000 contribution for a feasibility study into the proposed Cardwell Tropical Mountain Bike Network, which was completed by World Trail Pty Ltd in August 2021.

More information regarding the project can be found on the Cassowary Coast Regional Council's website.

Stage 1 – Early Works

The Australian Government, through the COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Fund, allocated close to $500,000 for the Cardwell Mountain Bike Trail Network Stage 1 – Early Works project. The funding was allocated for sustaining tourism at Australia's iconic World and National Heritage sites and ensuring regional communities could benefit from increased tourism when COVID-19 related travel restrictions eased.

The Early Works project was completed in June 2022, creating new mountain bike infrastructure in Cardwell including a trail head, pump track, bike wash, car parking and signage. This links to the existing informal trails and help to position Cardwell as a bike-friendly destination.
