Mountain biking

Charles Darwin National Park

There are several trails in Charles Darwin National Park that are for mountain bike riders only.

You can test your skills on the Wirraway Trail, which winds through the centre of the park.

Or you can try the more challenging Spitfire Trail, which is graded as 'difficult'. This trail is closed for the Wet Season.


There are shelters near the park entry and next to the main picnic area with trail information. Take a photo of the trail map on your phone to help stay on track.

Totem post markers along the trails also show the way.

The Pump Track

A pump track is a loop you can ride with little pedalling. They help you to get the feel of your bike before taking on a trail.

The Pump Track in Charles Darwin National Park is along the park access road, just behind one of the World War 2 storage shelters.
