Cringila Hills Mountain Bike Park

Track status: Open

 

Explore our city’s newest mountain bike trails in the hills of Cringila, with sweeping views over Wollongong’s iconic industrial landscape towards the ocean and Lake Illawarra.

Cringila Hills Mountain Bike Park has an exciting mix of almost 12 kilometres of trails for riders from beginners to advanced, giving you more ways to enjoy our Bike City.

Our tracks have a mix of gradients, surfaces and obstacles to make your ride fun or challenge your skills.

We’re still working a couple of the trails, so please check signs and stay off any sections that are under construction. We're aiming to have all tracks finished by the end of 2021, weather permitting.

Cringila Hills Recreation Park

These mountain bike trails are part of a bigger project that's transforming Cringila Hills into a landmark recreation park. The area includes a new playground and more than 3.4km of shared-use and walking trails.

We're also working on a jumps park for beginner to intermediate riders (expected to be finished by end of 2021), plus an asphalt pump track and bike skills playground (both due to be ready mid-2022).

Visit our Cringila Hills Recreation Park project page to learn more.

Getting here

The Park is approximately 10 minutes' drive south of the centre of Wollongong. Entry to the car park is off Lackawanna Street, Cringila.
