Car parking and access
There is a 500-metre gravel road which runs from Smith Creek Road to the Uki Mountain Bike Park entrance and can easily be accessed by a regular vehicle.
There is free parking at the park for up to 20 cars. Please do not park in adjacent streets or on neighbouring properties. If the car park is full, there is an option to park in the Uki township, which is approximately 3 km away.
There is no shuttle service. Access to the trails is via Trail 1 (T1) which joins up to all trail entrances. Park your car in the designated area and walk your bike to the entrance.
The Uki Mountain Bike Park welcomes everyone however, there are currently no designated recreation areas to sit if you are a non-rider. A recreation area is planned for the future, dependent on funding.
Toilets are available at the park however, there is no accessible toilet. The Uki village has toilets (including accessible toilets). Toilets will be temporary until additional funding can be sourced to construct permanent toilets.
Bring plenty of water with you. However, there is a water bubbler located at the main trail hub near the car park/pump track.
Food and drinks
The closest place to buy food and drinks is in the Uki township, which is approximately 3 km away.
Leave no trace – please take your rubbish with you to look after our environment and wildlife.
Bike hire and repairs
There is no bike hire or repair service at the park. Bring your own bike and repair kit.
Mobile phone reception
Mobile phone coverage will be different for every guest depending on the carrier you are with. For some sections you will have coverage, for some parts you may have a weaker signal and, in some parts, you may have no coverage at all.
In case of emergency, download the Emergency Plus app and know how to enable emergency or SOS functions on your mobile phone.
Snakes are most active during the warm summer months. Park users are encouraged to carry their own first aid kit or snake bite kit.
First aid for snake bites
In the event of any emergency, including a snake bite, always call 000 or call 112 if you're in a remote area with poor mobile coverage, and ask for an ambulance.
Keep calm, and follow these steps:
- Get the person away from the snake.
- Ensure they rest and help them to stay calm.
- Follow the steps of basic first aid - DRSABCD.
- Call triple zero (000) or 112 in remote areas and ask for an ambulance.
- Apply a pressure immobilisation bandage. If you can't use a pressure immobilisation bandage because the bite is on the stomach or back, apply constant, firm pressure.
Things you should not do:
- Do not wash the bite area - venom left on the skin and clothing can help identify the snake.
- Do not apply a tourniquet (a strap to stop blood flow)
- Do not cut the wound
- Do not try to suck the venom (poison) out.

The Tweed Shire Council community facility is operated in partnership with Tweed Valley Mountain Bike Riders (TVMTBR) and located on Council-owned operational land.
All trails have been constructed to International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) trail construction standards.
The facility is part of Council’s commitment to providing our community with opportunities to be active and healthy, as well as ensuring the Tweed is a vibrant place to live and visit.
The project has been made possible thanks to a $430,000 grant awarded through the NSW Office of Sport – Regional Sports Facility Fund 2021-22.
