Project Background

Townsville City Council is committed to supporting parks, sporting fields and recreational areas that promote active lifestyles, bring people together and contribute to the wellbeing of our city. To deliver on this commitment, Council is preparing a holistic Townsville Mountain Bike Strategy that is community centric and evidence-based, and that is aimed at increasing the liveability of our city through improving health, wellbeing and economic capacity.

The Townsville Mountain Bike Strategy objectives are:

  • Improve the liveability of Townsville and the health and wellbeing of the Townsville community;
  • Create a sustainable mountain bike tourism market in Townsville;
  • Provide a multi-stage 10-year Masterplan for mountain bike trail development in Townsville; and
  • Provide sustainable management guidelines for mountain bike infrastructure.

Council welcomes you to participate and have your say on this project. Your input will contribute to shaping this Strategy and guide Council on decision making and planning for the future.

Public consultation on the Townsville Mountain Bike Strategy is open from 29 JULY to 19 AUGUST 2020.
