The Farleigh Mountain Bike Routes

The Farleigh Mountain Bike Routes will be temporarily closed for the next few weeks (weekends included). The routes are closed due to the current harvest of timber in areas traversing the routes and due to the hazardous nature of the work it will not be safe for mountain bikers. The alternative route that was used in the past is also affected, thus leaving us with no other alternative but the temporary closure. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Visitor Tips

  1. Remember to bring along a bathing suit, angling equipment, hat, sun block, walking shoes, binoculars, bird and mammal reference books. Hikers must always carry sufficient water.
  2. For summer (September – March), cool comfortable clothing is recommended along with sunhats and sun protection cream.
    For winter and autumn (April – August), warm clothing is recommended for the night times.
