The thrilling 10km descent at the end of the ride that offers the perfect way to finish this challenging 4-7 hour journey at Mirimbah.

Buller’s cross-country offering includes Stonefly, touted as the best cross-country trail in Australia, plus the exhilarating Delatite River Trail descent from Buller to Mirimbah. Regardless of your skill level, the varied terrain, stunning alpine views and cool summer climate will create the ideal mountain biking escape.

Mountain bikers are advised to carry food and water with them on the mountains’ cross-country trails.
