Old Tambo Downhill Mountain Bike Track

Sports and Recreation Facilities

Opened in 2014, ‘Old Tambo’ is for experienced mountain bike riders looking for a high adrenaline run. It features fast flowing corners, rollers, dips, gaps and a nice chill out section through treed grasslands before the tight and technical bermed corners, drop-offs and steep grades to exit.

Access to the start of trail is on the top of Mount Tamborine, at the end of Wongawallan Road, Eagle Heights. It ends at the bottom of the mountain on Welches Road, Wongawallan.

The Black Diamond Trail is built by well-respected Australian track builders, Trailworx and Trailscapes. Designed in association with and built to the trail building guidelines of the International Mountain Bicycling Association.

The descent is approximately three-kilometres and will take experienced riders 10-minutes. It’s possible to ride back up the fire road that mostly runs parallel to the trail but it’s steep! Most opt to shuttle back to the top with a vehicle and driver.

The track includes many technical sections, jumps and berms as well as small rest areas. It’s best suited for all-mountain (AM/Enduro) bikes. It can be ridden with a downhill bike, although there is some pedalling involved. This is a public trail open for all to use.
