Pemberton is a stunningly beautiful town surrounded by spectacular Karri forests and farm land. It is an awesome place for mountain biking as well as road riding or as a great holiday destination.
The Pemberton Mountain Bike Project commenced in 2007 with a partnership between the Pemberton Visitor Centre, Pemberton Camp School and the Pemberton Cycling Group. Funding from the South West Development Commission, the Federal Government Department of Heath & Ageing, Lotterywest and the WA Department of Sport and Recreation have provided the capital to get the project off the ground. There are some 30 kilometres of sweet single track, a jump and pump track. The intent is to further develop the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park as part of the Pemberton Trail Hub, situated around the high quality tracks and trails. The mountain bike park is open to all. Pemberton has been nominated as a National level mountain bike destination as part of the riding opportunities in the South West of WA.
