Mountain bike tracks

Public-made mountain bike tracks are not permitted or authorised on public land. They often cause disturbance to native vegetation, impacting on fauna habitat, creating weed intrusion, and causing soil erosion and stormwater pollution running into creeks during rainy periods. 

There is additionally a great risk to the safety of the public if Council is unaware of the track and cannot promptly remove it. 

Council encourages community members to come forward and report any tracks and also be aware of the impact they have to other members of the community and the environment.

For more information refer to the following Frequently Asked Questions.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Mountain Bike and BMX riding at Oatley Park.

  • Is bike riding in Oatley Park illegal?

    No, it is not illegal. It is a permissible activity in accordance with the Plan of Management (POM). Bikes just need to stay on roads and fire trails and not go into the bush.
     
    We are improving the signage in parks to help all users understand their obligations to each other.

  • Can I create new tracks in the bush?

    No, you cannot create new tracks or trails for any purpose. The creation of new tracks in bushland areas is prohibited.
     
    This activity is harmful to the environment and may result in the destruction of endangered and native flora and the natural landscape. It may also pose a public safety issue for other park users.

  • What can I do if I see a new bush track created?

    Where a new bush track or jumps have been created you can report this to Council using the Log It/Fix It option on Council’s website or you can download the Georges River Council app from the App Store or Google Play. The app lets you easily take a photo and upload the details on Request a Service.
