The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation
The Munda Biddi Trail, meaning 'path through the forest' in the local Noongar Aboriginal language, is a world-class off-road cycling experience. The Trail traverses Western Australia's Darling Range and Southern Forests through Eucalypt bushland, granite outcrops and unique wetlands – South-West WA is recognised as a global biodiversity hotspot, you will discover plants and wildlife found nowhere else. There are few places in the world where a 1000km trail could be built through an undeveloped natural corridor.
Every day on the Trail will be different - imagine riding through towering eucalyptus forests and pristine ancient bushland, past rolling farmland and wind-shaped coastal ecosystems. The Trail winds through relatively gentle terrain from Mundaring in the Perth Hills, to Albany on the South Coast. The surface on the northern half of the Trail is the distinctive red pea-gravel, whilst the southern forests have a combination of loamy soils and fine white sand.
You can camp in purpose-built shelters on the Trail or stay in quaint country towns. Learn about Aboriginal culture and the rich heritage of the region as you visit the diverse attractions of South-West WA. The trail boasts year-round cycling weather, although summer can be extremely hot.
The Trail has something for everyone and is easily accessible by car, so you can begin your journey wherever convenient. Different sections are suitable for cyclists of all abilities and pace, however to really enjoy the Trail, some mountain biking experience is recommended. The Trail is predominantly off-road, meaning you can enjoy the scenery whilst staying away from motorised vehicles.
The Munda Biddi Foundation administers a range of Trail-related events, co-ordinates volunteers, answers enquiries and supports the wider Munda Biddi community in Western Australia and further afield. Membership is free, and you can join here.
