each other’s tyre or leave a space to pin. It’s about doing party trains, railing berms and SENDING IT!

down those precious seconds for the win!
About the Trails
Tucked away in the Silvia Valley alongside the main street of Atherton, the Atherton Forest MTB Park is in the Herberton Range State Forest and Mount Baldy Forest Reserve. It features mainly open eucalypt forests and valleys with frequent river crossings and waterfalls, and spectacular views of the Tablelands.
The trails meander through an open forest of gums, bloodwoods, mahoganys, she-oaks, grasstrees and cycadas. With a variety of grades including easy, intermediate, and some options for black (difficult) sections, this is a purpose-built network of single-track that has something for everyone and that everyone will love!
Address: Herberton Range State Forest Trailhead, Rifle Range Road, Atherton
If you’re flying into Cairns, the first thing you’ll need to do is get to the CBD. There are taxis and hire cars, and also a local shuttle bus which costs about $35 one-way for a single adult ($45 return), and $10 one-way for children ($18 return). Check out the Cairns Airport website for all the details.
Once you’re in the CBD you’ll be able to catch the Trans North bus to get to Atherton proper. This bus doesn’t pick up from the airport, but please note that for the return trip, passengers travelling from Atherton to Cairns can pay a small surcharge (about $5 per person) and get dropped off back at the airport, which works out a bit cheaper than booking a return Airport Shuttle. Find all the details and the schedule here. The fare for a single trip each way from Cairns to Atherton is about $26.
If you’re travelling in a group, get in touch with Cairns Region Minibus Group Transfers and let them take all the hassle and headache out of moving your group around.
And finally if you really want the freedom to be able to fully explore the Tablelands while you’re in the region, then head on over to the Cairns Airport website for all the details about hiring a car.
