Not just a mountain bike park
We can write about our trails and paint a pretty picture, but the truth is, you simply need to experience what all the fuss is about! With over 45km of trail, you will be amazed at the variety of routes and the varying skill levels we cater for. In a nutshell, this is single track heaven and once you’ve had a taste, you’ll undoubtedly keep coming back for more!

The sport of BMX is an exciting cycling discipline that teaches exceptional bike handling skills and is a great introductory start for all aspiring cyclists who would like to take part in a safe and family-friendly environment. Come try BMX, ride for fun or competition, from age 4 and up, including adults of all ages. Get the kids outside, make new friends & have some fun!
The Giba BMX track is a purpose built BMX facility boasting a 5m & 8M start hill with combination Pro & Amateur tracks. Giba offers unrivalled facilities with one of the best BMX tracks in the country.
All are welcome to join the club practice days on Wednesday nights.
Giba has hiking trails suitable for the beginner as well as the experienced hiker and everyone in between.
There is a scenic, relatively flat hike to our first waterfall with a total distance of 5km. Looking to level up? Try our hike to the second waterfall, Mackintosh falls, which has a total distance of 8.5km.
Still not exhausted? Challenge yourself to a hike to our third waterfall, a hike that follows a 10km route.
When it comes to trail running, few places can beat Giba. With over 45km of trails, you’d literally have to run for days until you have seen it all. And even then, with varied terrain that changes with the seasons, you’re not really likely to ever get bored. There are rivers to cross, rocky sections to climb, technical descents to master and the most beautiful scenery along the way!

The Giba Gallery is our most recent addition to the trail centre. A revival of the old Giba Gallery that closed 10 years ago; this beautiful retail space has added an element of elegance to the park. Inside the shop, you can expect to find everything from rustic interior decor items, to funky trail gadgets, to gifts; sourced both locally and from abroad. We look forward to being visited by old faithful customers alongside our new visitors. All in all, we are very excited and can’t wait to share our finds with you!
There is often a lot happening at Giba Gorge. We host events that cater for the park’s runners, riders and hikers. From BMX championships, to our regular trail running night series, to enduro and downhill events, to training clinics, to guided hikes – we could go on. Be sure to keep up to date using our calendar so that you don’t miss out on the fun!
Giba Graze is our restaurant at the trail centre, and we have found that it does wonders to refuel you after your adventure out on the trails. So much so that we have found a new category of people coming to the park, who we refer to as trail foodies. But foodie or not, you’ll definitely find something at the restaurant to appease those post-exercise cravings. From coffee and cake, to our Giba Benedict, to gourmet toasted sandwiches, pizzas and burgers – there really is something for everyone.
