About the North East Mountain Bike Project (NEMTB)

The project consists of three trail networks totalling approximately 90kms of world class, purpose built, single track plus infrastructuresuch as signage and bike wash stations.

The length of the proposed trails will leverage existing mountain biking and cycling infrastructure in the Region, and will provide the necessary critical mass to create an internationally recognised MTB tourism destination, allowing over two full days of riding for enthusiasts of varying capability. For more info on existing MTB trails in Tasmania, go to Tassie Trails.

The project stems from a 2011 background report funded by Tourism Tasmania (prepared by Six Dot Consulting) that identified Hollybank, Blue Tier and Derby as having significant potentital to become iconic mountain bike destinations.

NTD co-ordinated a successful application for Regional Development Australia Funding that has secured an Australia Government contribution of $2.5million towards the project. An additional $800,000 from the Tasmanian Government's Tasmanian Jobs Package was granted for Stage 1 at Hollybank for a world class mountain bike experience.

The project is a partnership between Dorset, Break O'Day, and Launceston City Councils and NTD. Other support has been provided by Forestry Tasmania and NRM North.
