Cycling in Queanbeyan-Palerang

Cycling in Queanbeyan-Palerang

The Queanbeyan-Palerang region boasts many country roads, national parks and reserves with quality cycling options for all levels and interests. Fire trails through nature reserves and at Googong Dam offer something for the whole family, while other areas, such as Sparrow Hill and Kowen Forest, both located between Canberra and Queanbeyan, offer new challenges for the seasoned mountain bike enthusiast. Quiet country roads can be explored by road cyclists, linking together townships and cool climate wineries; and path networks in Queanbeyan itself can be enjoyed by the whole family. How about a bikepacking adventure through the backroads from Queanbeyan to the coast via Captains Flat and finishing in Moruya.

The region is home to NSW’ only heritage-listed town, Braidwood. Together with Bungendore, both offer a taste of yesteryear, and support the work of numerous local artisans and boutique stores.

Queanbeyan Palerang also hosts two exceptional mountain biking destinations: East Kowen and Sparrow Hill.
