Second Stage Funded

15 June 2022 | Community, Cycling,

On Friday 10th June, Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria Danielle Green announced the start of works on the first stage of the Omeo Mountain Bike project – which will be backed by an additional $3.2 million investment from the Labor Government’s Regional Tourism Investment Fund to deliver the project’s second stage.

Stage two works will create an additional 64 kilometres of bike trails, bringing the total Omeo Mountain Bike project to 121 kilometres of connected tracks which will meet Mountain Bike Australia’s criteria for national events.

Once complete, the trail project is set to capture nationwide demand for outdoor adventure, winding through Mount Sam State Forest and the Oriental Claims Historic Area parkland. The project will boost Omeo’s reputation as an all-year-round tourism destination with the first trail expected to be ready by March next year.
