13095: Environmentally responsible mountain-biking in Bramley National Park

    Bramley National Park is located to the west of Bussell Highway in Margaret River.

    The beautiful park is home to a diverse range of plants and animals and has multiple waterways. It is also regarded as the states premier mountain bike tourism destination.

    Mountain biking has existed in the park for 15 years on unsanctioned trails. A large portion of these are not in line with international mountain bike association standards for sustainable construction and are seeing significant erosion, filling waterways with debris. They also traverse areas containing threatened ecological communities.

    This project aims to protect the environmental values of Bramley National Park by establishing a permanent mountain bike facility in an area of less environmental significance.

    Project activities include:

    • audit and assessment of existing trails
    • flora and fauna surveys
    • dieback assessments
    • rehabilitation of eroded areas
    • revegetation of closed and realigned trails
    • mountain bike trail creation and upgrade

    The new trail will be located to the north of Carters Road and west of the Bramley Brook and traverses State Forest Reserve 43215 and Bramley National Park.

    Investment: $ 80 000
    Delivery organisation: Margaret River off Road Cycling Association
    Project duration: April 2014 - November 2015
    Location: Bramley National Park in the Shire of Augusta Margaret River
