About Probation, Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park

Combine with Convict trail for a longer ride. It's also possible to extend further to the Banishment and Ngarna trails for a great cross country adventure around the Goat Farm Mountain Bike.
What's in a name? Dating back to the early colonial days, the Goat Farm was a convict depot where convict labour was used to mine bluestone from the quarries. Keep an eye out for some of the original stone footings as you ride. The name of this trail reflects the times of the early convict labourers and the challenges they faced.
The Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park contains over 20km of mountain bike trails and a dedicated Skills Park with skills and jump areas. The Goat Farm trails range from Easy (Green) to Extreme (Double Black) and include four trails suitable for adaptive cyclists.
