The Munda Biddi Trail 

 

Munda Biddi means 'path through the forest' in the local Noongar Aboriginal language. This Trial is a world-class, off-road cycling experience. The Trail traverses Western Australia's Darling Range and southern forests through eucalyptus bushland, granite outcrops and unique wetlands. South-West WA is recognised as a global biodiversity hotspot where you will discover plants and wildlife found nowhere else. There are few places in the world where a 1 000 km trail could be built through an undeveloped natural corridor.

Every day on the Trail will be different: imagine riding through towering eucalyptus forests and pristine ancient bushland, past rolling farmland and wind-shaped coastal ecosystems. The Trail winds through relatively gentle terrain from Mundaring in the Perth Hills, to Albany on the South Coast. The surface on the northern half of the Trail is the distinctive red pea-gravel, whilst the southern forests have a combination of loamy soils and fine-white sand.

You can camp in purpose-built shelters on the Trail or stay in quaint country towns. Learn about Aboriginal culture and the region’s rich heritage as you visit the diverse attractions of South-West WA. The Trail boasts year-round cycling weather, although summer can be extremely hot. The Trail has something for everyone and is easily accessible by car, so you can begin your journey wherever convenient.

Different sections of the Trail are suitable for cyclists of all abilities and paces. However, to really enjoy the Trail, some mountain biking experience is recommended. The Trail is predominantly off-road, meaning you can enjoy the scenery whilst staying away from motorised vehicles.

The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation administers a range of Trail-related events, coordinates volunteers, answers enquiries and supports the wider Munda Biddi community in Western Australia and further afield. Membership is free, and you can join here.
