FORREST Festival has become one of the "must do" events in Australia

3 -4 December 2016

Now in our 6th year, we've worked hard to make our little event even better.

  • More Categories - including Clydesdale and Single Speed
  • Same Great format - including our now famous stage 4 head to head
  • Extra activities planned - when you're not riding your bike and for the whole family
  • Friday night short track event

So, you've heard all the hype, here's your chance to get involved... and remember our event...

You mean you haven't heard of Forrest yet?  Where have you been?

Since moving away from a traditional logging township during the early 2000's, Forrest has become one of Australia's best Mountain Bike Destinations.

What separates Forrest from so many other similar MTB parks, is the village of Forrest itself.  This tiny little community of 200 people is surrounded by over 60k of sweet, flowing single track.  Unlike many other mountain bike destinations, when you are done riding for the day, you can just ride back to your accommodation,...

The vast majority of accommodation in Forrest has already sold out for the weekend of our little event. However please check out for more details.

Overflow camping has been arranged at the Wonky Stables Holiday Park Forrest.
It is a very popular spot for visitors to Forrest, with many people returning on each visit to Forrest.

Extra Toilets and Showers will be trucked into the Caravan Park site to cope with the extra load (get it... load?). 



We have agreed to keep our popular low price for EARLY BIRD entries. 

With only 400 places available, we will NOT be able to extend this number and hence there will be a first come first serve basis.

Entries will open July 1 2016

Entries will be individual riders only.

Entry fee for all 5 stages, including but not limited to the following.

  • Five awesome courses
  • Professional Timing & Results
  • Full results after each stage
  • Exclusive event T-Shirt
  • Extra amenities brought into Forrest
  • ...loads more.

What a way to start the weekend, with some of the best trails on offer in the Southern Forrest trail area

Time trialling... so much fun. So much opportunity to gain time on your mates. Oh did we mention there's a little hill?

Red Carpet is one of the best know trails in Victoria, with recent upgrades we'll be seeing new times set. Down down down...

It's the one they all talk about. Head to head racing against the person closest to you in your category up till that point. Who will win?

The big one. It's 50k of Forrest flow. More single track than you'll know what to do with.  Mass start, let's finish this!
