Atherton, Yungaburra, Malanda Cycle Link

Imagine a  safe off-road cycling loop connecting Atherton, Yungaburra and Malanda.  Imagine riding your bike (or e-bike or with your kids) on roads that wind through farmlands and cross beautiful rivers.  Imagine stopping to watch platypus, taking a dip in unspoiled waterholes and enjoying a coffee in the local townships.

Now imagine that this is almost available on the Tablelands, with just a few kilometres of work to be done on existing roads to make this dream a 74km long reality for all.  And (even better), this loop would form part of a 122km network of safe cycling trails in our region that would be the envy of cyclists around the world.

The SAO’s-led project to  complete this Cycle Link is outlined below and in the Executive Summary .  Stay tuned for more updates.
