Why the Sunshine Coast is a mountain bikers paradise

A new campaign tagged ‘Ride the 5’ encourages visitors to hop on their bike and discover the Sunshine Coast’s twisting mountain bike trails, taking you from the bush to beach across quiet stream crossings, lush fern gullies and pedalling through towering rainforest.


The Sunshine Coasts’ five major mountain biking trails include: Tewantin National Park MTB Trails, Sugar Bag Rd Caloundra MTB Trails, the proposed Olympic venue Parklands in the Hinterland, Ewen Maddock Dam Ferny Forest MTB Loop and Mapleton National Park Shared Use Trails.

What makes the Sunshine Coast so special?

The Sunshine Coast has a diversity of trails as a mountain biking destination, both geographically and in the skill level required by riders. Additionally, the trails are close to other major attractions, eateries and accommodation.

Trails are varied enough to suit everyone from beginners to experienced riders, and all trails are easily accessible, meaning you can be biking down a mountain one minute and downing a craft beer with your riding buddies the next.

Winter is the perfect time to visit the Sunshine Coast, when the trails are in great condition and there are less riders on the trails.
