La Larr Ba Gauwa Park

National Parks and Reserves

La Larr Ba Gauwa has become famous for 34 kilometres of mountain bike trails that showcase its stunning mountain views and unique rock formations. In fact, ‘La Larr Ba Gauwa’ means ‘Stones and Mountain’ in the Dja Dja Wurrung language, as spoken by the Traditional Owners of the country where the Park is located.

Car parking for riders is in Harcourt, connecting directly to the trail head via a bike path that runs parallel to Market Street. From there, take your pick of the trails, from a leisurely beginners’ loop to technically challenging cross-country rides with chutes, berms, drops, jumps and rock gardens.

The location has long been a favourite for local picnickers and casual explorers, especially its historic Oak Forest, which remains accessible in the heart of the park. Old access tracks that crisscross the Park have now been re-purposed for bush walkers and horse riders.

A short ride from the village of Harcourt. Just over an hour from Melbourne. La Larr Ba Gauwa preserves cultural significance and local history within one of Victoria’s newest and greatest mountain bike trail networks.

When you visit, be sure to BYO water- there is no potable water at the Park.
