Bushfire Recovery & Support

Updated 6 April 2020
Many mountain bike trail networks have been damaged or impacted by bushfires raging across the country.  Clubs play an integral role in the construction, maintenance, management and provision of these trails, in partnership with land managers and other stakeholders.

The information on this page may assist clubs with the rebuilding and recovery process of not only the trails but also the local community and its people.  Information will be added to this page as it comes to hand and may include details on community support services, funding and grant opportunities, and service providers available to assist in this process.
