Deniliquin, or Deni as it’s better known, is fast becoming an adventure sports hub, and it’s easy to see why. Known for its world-famous Ute Muster and as a watersport mecca, Deni is now adding mountain biking to its string of attractions with a new 12km trail network.

While Deni already has a variety of cycle trails throughout the town and across the region, the new trail network caters for riders looking to step things up a notch.

Winding through the Murray Valley Regional Park, these trails offer a singletrack experience for skilled riders. The trails are handlebar width and will quickly have you hooting and hollaring as you blast round the fast and flowy cross-country route.

The Murray Valley is a pretty flat region, so you won’t be spending your trail time struggling up hills. Instead you’ll be dialling in your corners, working on your log rollovers and cranking through the straights to chase that PB on Strava.

If you’re after a more chilled out ride, there’s plenty to entertain your eyeballs as you cruise the trails. Spot kangaroos, wallabies, goannas and over 100 different species of birdlife found in the area.

Speaking of kangas, the trail network has a minuscule environmental impact, being structured around the existing kangaroo pads found in the forest. So with the exception of trail signs and a car park, you’ll be able to enjoy the iconic red gums and a box woodland community in all their natural glory.
