Narooma Mountain Bike Trail on track

Accommodation providers in Narooma are being kept in the loop on the developments of the Narooma Mountain Bike Trail to ensure they understand how Mountain Bike Tourism works and to help them attract and service what will be an ever expanding market. Many of the providers have already had stays from MTB tourists and are already adapting and informing themselves of what they need to do.

The Narooma trails are aiming for a January 2023 opening and when open it will be the biggest Trail network on the Australian mainland to date. The Narooma Mountain Bike Trail objective is to have year-round tourism. Given the location of the South East to the Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra market and the temperate climate the facility should attract visitors year round because the Snowy Mountains and Tasmania usually cannot open for a period of months due to snow and rain. Narooma's temperate climate is perfect and the soil type of Narooma ensures fast drainage with minimum disrupt from rain. The Narooma Mountain Bike club was established in 2019 right before bushfires and COVID. The club were successful with a Government BLER grant which is enabling them to add 60kms of singletrack trail to their existing network. Dirt Art are the contractors and are building now with an expected opening date around March 2023.

The club are all volunteers building and maintaining trails. Eurobodalla Shire Council do not offer any assistance, either financially or with administration. Council's own smaller proposed $3 million Mogo Trails project will no doubt benefit from the Narooma Trails already developing reputation.
