Kiwarrak mountain bike park, Taree nsw

 
 

Welcome to the PBM HARDROCK 6HR Mountain Bike Race, now in it's fourth year at the incredible Kiwarrak Mountain Bike Park close to Taree on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

Just like the last three races, this year is shaping up to be one of the best races on the NSW MTB race calendar. The mix of ultra-flowy trails, chill atmosphere and great facilities means that you and your friends won't have better fun for your hard earned.

the weekend
 
THE LOCATION

The Kiwarrak Mountain Bike Park is located approximately 7km Southwest  of the City of Taree on the Mid North Coast of NSW. Well known as a tourist destination for families seeking the sun, sand and water, the Mid North Coast has also established itself as one of the hottest destinations for mountain bikers in NSW.

 

Boasting nearly 70km of hand-cut trails established over 20 years, the Kiwarrak Mountain Bike Park features endless flowy trails, outstanding enduro-style gravity runs and more than it's fair share of purpose-built structures and jump lines.

Taree and the Manning Valley has much more to offer than just our terrific MTB trails. Why not stay longer and explore our natural wonderland?

South from Brisbane/Port Macquarie:

- Travel South on Pacific Highway to Taree

- Turn RIGHT at second exit to Taree

STRAIGHT through first roundabout (past service centre turnoff)

STRAIGHT through second roundabout (right will take you to Taree)

- Travel 3.2km past second roundabout and turn LEFT  onto Lantana Crossing Road

CAMPING AT THE RACE

As the Kiwarrak Mountain Bike Park is located on State Forestry land, camping is allowed and it's free! Anyone can camp in the park any time of the year, but over the weekend of the PBM HARDROCK 6HR 

There'll be toilets and water available to

racers and riders from 12pm on 

Saturday 17th August.

PLEASE NOTE: Camping facilities at the

Race Event Centre are primitive -

There are no showers/running water/

toilet blocks. The location is in the

middle of a state forest. Campers will

need to bring everything they require

to last the weekend.

HOW TO GET HERE
