Trail names like ABOM, International and Stonefly are part of Australian mountain biking folklore. Mt Buller is home to a multitude of XC, DH and enduro trails that rank on a world scale (see Pinkbike’s top 50 global bike parks and you’ll find Mt Buller among the best).
Whether you choose to ride between 1,800m peaks; complete a 5-hour backcountry ride or hit the fast and furious gravity zone Mt Buller delivers for every rider.
The trails are refreshed before the start of every season; with a maintenance program during the season to keep the trails in incredible condition.
Our shuttle service caters to both the gravity zone (ABOM, Copperhead, International & Outlaw); plus the fabled Delatite River trail and Australian Epic trail.

The incredible trail network at Mt Buller means we have two different shuttle services operating all day.
The Gravity Zone: we have multiple buses running non-stop 10am to 4pm. Simply jump on the shuttle vehicle when you reach the end of the trail (turn right at trails end and pedal a short distance along the dirt road). The key trails here are Copperhead; ABOM; Outlaw Express and International. People also ride other trails within the bike park and then make their way down to the shuttle to be taken back up to the resort village. The Gravity Zone shuttle collects you from the Lower Tyrol Carpark and drops you on the launchpad at the very top of the gravity trails. We have a stop at the mid-way point right in the middle of the village, at the Village Bike Cafe, so you can get off grab a bite to eat, return to your accommodation or visit the bike shop for anything bike related. We do not pick-up from this village stop. It is quite easy to jump on Copperhead from the village centre and ride down to the shuttle – follow the signs. It’s not uncommon for people to take breaks throughout the day and simply jump back on the uplift shuttles when they feel like it.
Mirimbah Shuttle: we also have a shuttle bus running from the very bottom of the mountain. This caters to people riding both the Epic Trail and Delatite River Trail. This shuttle leaves from the Mirimbah cafe at scheduled times – see booking platform below. We recommend booking in advance – but offer live on the day availability & booking so you can plan your ride. It takes our vehicles 30 – 40 minutes to drive back up the mountain, and is much easier than pedaling.
Shuttles are not compulsory to enjoy the bike park. You can pedal up – it’s free. Yes there is no charge to enter and ride the bike park. As a guide it would take an average rider 60 minutes to pedal from the bottom of the gravity trails to central village; and much, much longer from Mirimbah to the village.
Gravity Zone Shuttle hours: 10am – 4pm
Mirimbah Shuttles: 8.30am; 9.30am; 2.00pm; 4.00pm.
Days of operation; every weekend; daily 27 Dec – 31 Jan

Brand new to MTB: check out Family Trail going around the village; then progress to One Tree Hill and Soul Revival. Don’t forget the modular Pump Track – everyone can ride this. We often see kids following elite riders honing their skills.
Newish to MTB: The Home Trail is an excellent intro into gravity riding; and leaves from the central village. Delatite River Trail is an incredible progression trail.
Not newish, but moving along: Copperhead has you name written all over it. Nail this and progress to ABOM & Outlaw Express. If XC riding is your thing Clancy’s Run and Misty Twist should not be missed.
Riding hard: International has a big reputation for gravity riders. Stonefly remains one of our favourites for XC riding with a jaw-dropping descent to finish with
Like to explore: The Australian Alpine Epic Trail is a challenging 50km ride; with a wicked 9km descent towards the end.
