Must ride – Gympie, Queensland

Chances are that if you’ve heard of this small town, it isn’t because of its mountain biking, but if you’re looking to ride some serious trails less than two hours’ drive from Brisbane, Victory Heights trails is a system not to be missed.

For the last few years, a small eucalypt forest on the edge of Gympie has been undergoing a dramatic change. Powered by Trailworx and volunteers, the Victory Heights trails now boast an expansive network. With dedicated kids’ tracks, dirt jumps, flow trails, and more singletrack than you’ll know what to do with, you’re not going to get bored here.

Victory Heights has been built with families in mind. With two dedicated kids’ trails right at the entrance, covered picnic tables and potable water on site, it’s a great way to get the family into riding.

If you’re looking for something more challenging, the deeper you head into the bush, the more exciting the trails get.

The signage tells you where to go, the rating of the trail, and the local business that sponsored the creation of that particular trail.

If it’s flow you’re looking for, Gympie has some of the best flowing trails that South East Queensland has to offer.
