Wylde BMX and Mountain Bike Facility Opening in Sydney
Get ready, Sydney, something wheely big has arrived! The first tracks of the new Wylde BMX and Mountain Bike Facility have finally opened.
If you're a fan of BMX biking, mountain biking, or just being outdoors in a really beautifully landscaped area, you're going to want to jump in the car this weekend, to see the biggest bike track in the Southern Hemisphere at Western Sydney Parklands.
Welcome to Australia's Largest BMX & Mountain Biking Hub
Much like the rest of Western Sydney Parklands, the existing Wylde Mountain Bike Trail is already a huge hit with Sydney families who have loved testing out their cycling skills on the Kids Loop, the 3 to 6-km trails, the Jump run and Pump Tracks. Well, now families can experience even more outdoor thrills thanks to the addition of five brand-new biking trails at the Wylde BMX and Mountain Bike Facility.

The Biggest Pump Track in the Southern Hemisphere
While the rest of the Wylde BMX and Mountain Bike Facility is not due to open until December 2021, families can enjoy a sneak preview of what's to come as Western Sydney Parklands opens the new mountain biking trails on 3 July 2021.
The $13.5 million, 86-hectare Wylde BMX and Mountain Bike Facility is a joint project by the NSW Government and Liverpool City Council and led by the new Greater Sydney Parklands agency.
According to Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, Rob Stokes: “Mountain bikers and BMX riders will soon be enjoying the biggest pump track in the Southern Hemisphere, which has a looped sequence of rollers and swoopy turns designed to maximise momentum”.
The current Wylde Mountain Bike (MTB) Trail attracts over 30,000 Sydney families per year, so it's obvious that this is one of Sydney's biggest mountain biking attractions. The addition of 60 kilometres of loops, jumps, tracks and trails is giving Sydney families even more momentum to spend time in our beautiful outdoors.
