DISCOVER & EXPERIENCE THE OUTDOORS
Immerse yourself in the attractions and natural beauty of the Perth Hills
MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL
The Munda Biddi Trail (which means path through the forest in the Noongar Aboriginal language) is fast becoming a world-class nature-based off-road cycling experience. There are few places left in the world where a 1000km track could be built through an undeveloped natural corridor. Combine Western Australia's vast areas of unspoiled forests and bushland, gentle terrain, and year-round cycling weather, and you have the ideal setting for an off-road cycle trail.
The Munda Biddi is a trail with something for everyone. There are sections of trail that will suit anyone's cycling ability and pace. The trail is easily accessible by car, so you can begin your journey wherever it is convenient. Different sections of the trail are suitable for cyclists of all levels, with a number of challenging loops and spurs coming off the main trail. As the trail is predominantly off-road, you can enjoy the scenery while you safely cycle through the forest on the dirt track.
For suggested trips depending on your experience and fitness level, please refer to Munda Biddi Trip Planning section of their website.
Maps can be purchased at the Perth Hills Visitor Centre and from the Munda Biddi website
