Maydena Bike Park

Destination overview

Nestled between Mount Field National Park and Lake Pedder, Maydena Bike Park is in a class of its own. There aren’t many places in Australia where highly skilled riders can scare themselves, and find the limit of their bike and technical skill; there are even fewer places where riders of all levels can achieve this feat. With more than 70 gravity trails on the slopes of Abbotts Peak, Maydena ticks all of these boxes.

Shuttles not mandatory but recommended

With its reputation as a gravity paradise well established, Maydena has been hard at work expanding its offering for families and beginners, with a range of shuttleable trails on its lower slopes.

Maydena is a private facility, run by the folks behind Dirt Art, which is why they can build such a wide range of trails. With upwards of 800m of vertical, there are climbing trails at Maydena, but you will get a lot more out of your trip if you book shuttles.

Open most years from late September to April, Maydena doesn’t often close due to weather. They have a full-time trail crew and encourage riders to brave sloppy singletrack, which is a good thing because the weather in this part of Tassie can be pretty volatile — even in the middle of summer. So come prepared for rain and cold.

It’s pretty quiet ‘round these parts

At the base area, you’ll find an asphalt pump track and an old school building that has been converted into the nerve centre of the bike park. There’s a bike shop, full-service mechanic, and two restaurants slinging brews, pizza and tapas.

Maydena also offers a full range of rental bikes, with everything from full-on DH rigs, to kids bikes.

Beyond the bike park, Maydena is a pretty quiet place, so don’t expect to find bumping nightlife, lots of restaurants or even a grocery store.
