Mountain Bike Park in Latrobe Valley?

The proposal for the bike park was put to council in 2016 by the Gippsland Mountain Bike Club (GMTB), with the council still to make a final decision.

GMTB member and local school teacher Nick King said the club was working on a business case with Destination Gippsland and that they planned to seek funding from local, state or federal sources.

Mr King also said the Latrobe shire was the only one in Gippsland without a mountain biking venue.

“Our [GMTB] main vision was to have Gippsland as a mountain biking mecca to develop tourism opportunities for healthy lifestyles in Latrobe Valley and Gippsland,” Mr King said.

In March 2017 Latrobe City Council endorsed the master plan and is seeking funding for this project from state and federal government. A good idea for the Latrobe Valley Authority community facility fund?

Mountain Biking in Latrobe Valley has a decent following and it would be great to see it become an attraction for the area.
