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 infrastructure such 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 mountain bike tourism destination, allowing over two full days of riding for enthusiasts of varying capability. For more info on existing mountain bike trails in Tasmania, go to and Mountain Bikes - Launceston and North East Tasmania and Ride Blue Derby.

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 potential to become iconic mountain bike destinations.

Northern Tasmania Development 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.

To view or download a copy of the original Hollybank Mountain Bike Park Master Plan (~7MB), go to our website. Enjoy!!

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