The Willo | Location


Coondoo State Forest / Nowra

The Willo did plan a return to its home in the Wingello State Forest. Unfortunately the wet weather patterns of 2022 presented a huge challenge for the land manager Forestry Corp NSW to re-open the Forest. The local Highlands Trails MTB Club put in huge efforts alongside the Forestry Operations teams all year and have been working on restoring the trail network.

As a firm reopening date can’t be set we worked together with Forestry Corp and the local club to find an alternative race venue: The Coondoo MTB trail network near Nowra.

The Nowra/Coondoo and Currambene State Forest trails are on the South Coast, about 1 hour South from Wollongong and about a 2.5 hour drive from Canberra.
