Maydena Bike Park
Maydena Bike Park opens on January 26 2018. Hawthorn Lodge is reached before Maydena so works well if coming from Hobart Airport, taking about an hour. Driving to the base station at Maydena will take around 20 minutes.
We offer rooms from $90/night with breakfast and if required transfers from Hobart airport and to Maydena. Dinner and alcoholic beverages are available to residents. To make it easy we offer a two night package with accommodation and transfers.
The team at Maydena Bike Park are developing trails suitable for all levels with a descent of 820 metre. This makes it one of the longer mountain bike descents in the world and equals many major ski resorts that convert to mountain biking in the winter.
Maydena is expected to be the best mountain bike park in the Southern Hemisphere and is on our doorstep!
Maydena Bike Park is purpose built and will operate all year. Similar to a ski resort an uplift system transport bikes up to the top from 10 – 4 each day. Maydena Bike Park Tickets should be purchased online as soon as you have dates as they are expected to sell out each day.
An appeal of Maydena will be the focus on riders of all abilities. Beginners and children will be very welcome and have access to easy trails and instruction. Experts will be challenged to the highest levels.
At the top of Maydena Bike Park there will be a fully serviced cafe and look out. This can be enjoyed by all and not just those riding downhill.The views are amazing and take in the South West Wilderness Area.
At the bottom in Maydena there is a base station with mountain bike hire, cafe and information.
Maydena Bike Park will have downhill trails for all levels with both easy trails and extreme mountain bike trails. Maydena Bike Park is being built by Dirt Art who are the leading mountain bike trail builders in Australia. They are bringing in their best trail design teams.
Hiring mountain bikes will be easy. There will also be instructors to guide both new and experienced mountain bike riders.
As mountain bikers, ourselves we understand your needs and have available the tools you need, secure storage and washing facilities.
We offer very comfortable excellent value accommodation from $90/room including breakfast and great value dinner options at $10/serve along with low cost beers, wine and more. BYO is also allowed.
In the winter relax by the fire in our cosy guest lounge and in the summer the extensive heritage veranda is a great place to share your story.
For those without transport we offer a two-night package to make it both easy and good value and saves the need to hire a car or van. Variations are possible to meet the needs of a group.
