Cycling Trails

Cycle friendly landscape

Situated on flat plains, the areas in and around Deniliquin are ideal for exploring by pedal power. From the wide streets in town to the backroads and smaller villages, get out of the car and explore at a more leisurely pace.

Ride the parks

With over 30km of bike trails in the Murray Valley National Park, just off the main highway near Mathoura, cycling enthusiasts can easily experience the diversity of nature and magnificent landscapes. Riders of all ages can tackle the purpose-built Five Mile mountain bike trail – one of the most popular places to ride in the region, set out in a convenient 7km loop starting at the Five Mile picnic area.

The more adventurous rider can take on the 12km Mountain Bike Track in the Murray Valley Regional Park, which opened in 2019. The trail is made from natural kangaroo paths, winding through the spectacular red gum forest. Suited for intermediate riders, the trail takes about two hours to complete.

Lagoons to River riding trail

Explore Deniliquin’s unique lagoon system on the 1.4km Lagoons to River trail, which curves through the centre of town. You’ll pass through gorgeous parkland including Waring Gardens, Scott’s Park and Brown’s Park. The trails have signage along the way to keep you on track, show distances and highlight key attractions.

Town paths

The Beach to Beach walk, popular on foot, can also be enjoyed on two wheels. Starting at McLean Beach, you pass the notable ‘Ute on a pole’ and the Peppin Heritage Centre on the way through bushland to the Murray Valley Regional Park. After a ride, those sandy beaches are the perfect spot for a picnic and a paddle.

Cyclists can also take advantage of the system of lagoons and restored wetlands that run through the heart of town in Deniliquin. With lots of spots to stop for a shady break, and shops along the way for supplies, this is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours in town.

Hire or BYO

If you haven’t packed your trusty treadly, you can still enjoy the region’s cycling attractions. You can borrow a bike at no cost and pick up trail maps at the Visitor Information Centre in Deniliquin. Bike hire is also available for some of the riverside resorts.
