La Larr Ba Gauwa Park is a world class mountain bike park near Harcourt in Central Victoria that was opened in March 2018.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning managed the construction of the park’s 34km of diverse mountain bike trails which take advantage of the area's stunning views and unique rock features.
The park has 11 trails that cater to riders of all abilities, including everything from a leisurely beginners’ loop to long, flowy cross-country rides and technically challenging trails featuring chutes, berms, drops, jumps and rock gardens.
The Dja Dja Wurrung people are the Traditional Owners of the country where the park is located. La Larr Ba Gauwa means ‘stones and mountain’ in Dja Dja Wurrung language.
La Larr Ba Gauwa Park has been built to International Mountain Bicycling Association standards and is managed by a volunteer committee of management.
The Victorian Government provided $1.99 million towards the park through the Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund.
