JUST 3km from the town centre, you can make the most of Gympie's trail network for walking, mountain biking and horse riding. at Victory Heights.

Accessed from Bath Tce between the historic Victory Hotel and Gympie North Railway Station, the trails weave through 60ha of mature eucalypt forest with 9km of signposted mountain biking trails ranging in difficulty from beginner to experienced levels, including a purpose designed kids/challenge track suitable for smaller children and novice riders.

There are also 12km of shared-use fire roads and multi-use trails that are suited for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

See Victory Heights Trail map here.
