Important race info

About The Venue

Arthurs Seat State Park offers over 20 kilometres of single-track mountain biking in the Mornington Peninsula – widely known as RedHill MTB Park.

The event hub and parking is accessed from Boundary Road. The entry gate is approximately 100m west from the shops. Look for the Rocky Trail flags when approaching the area. The north entrance car park is small and has limited parking. Travel further down the road and enter into the large open paddock.  This area is closer to the Event Hub (see image below).
