Falls Creek Gravity Shuttles

Howmans Gap – Village – Summit

Falls Creek has quickly become a must ride location on any mountain bikers radar. With an amazing single track network as well as a wealth of back country trails, Falls Creek appeals to all styles of riders. You can either earn your turns or jump on the Blue Dirt shuttle service to make the most of the fast flowing descending trails.

Riding the Blue Dirt shuttle to the summit of Falls Creek presents you with some of the best and longest descending trails in Australia. Choose your own adventure and link up trails such as High Voltage > Wishing Well > Flowtown and find yourself on a near 10km machine made descent stacked full of berms, jumps, rock gardens and more. Once at the bottom of Flowtown simply pop out onto the road and jump on our shuttle departing from the Resort entry gates and get ready for round 2!

New Green Trail for for 2019:  Greenline is a 5km green trail descent from the summit to the village – suitable for riders of all abilities, it sweeps out to the lake and back down into the village.

Our shuttle service picks riders up from both Howmans Gap (end of Flowtown) and also at the Village Bike Cafe located in Slalom Car Park in the resort village. Morning shuttle registrations are located at the Village Bike Cafe along with specialty coffee from Sensory Lab and delicious fresh locally food.

OPERATING DATES:   Daily 27 December 2018 – 13 January 2019;   plus every weekend for 17 November 2018 to 23 April 2019, Easter and other weekday dates to support race events.  (NOTE: we do not operate 9-10 March due to Peaks Road race at Falls Creek)
