‘The SkyTrails Project’, is a master plan to establish the Far North as a global force in mountain biking. We want Cairns to be the first place people think of when they consider MTB destinations in Australia. Let’s tap into some of the 30,000 domestic and international visitors who travel to Derby, Tasmania for mountain biking and spend $30 million per year. We’ve already proven that we can host successful events, like the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in 2017. Now it’s time to take the next step.
Our vision is to attract 50,000 to 75,000 domestic and international mountain bikers to our region, injecting $35-$50 million per year. We have consulted leading trail designers to create a blueprint for a truly world-class product, improving established trails, creating new ones, and our ‘jewel in the crown’ – the Skyrail Gondola Uplift, a first for Australia
There has never been a better, or more important time for growth in the Far North.
Help us to make Cairns, Australia’s top MTB Destination.
