Cycling at the Australian Botanic Garden
You can enjoy Aussie plants and wonderful views by bicycling off the beaten track at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan. There are feature gardens, lakes, picnic areas and toilet facilities scattered throughout the Garden.
For the experienced road cyclist, the Garden can be reached by bicycle, if you travel by train to Campbelltown Station.
Free entry to the Garden has resulted in huge increases in visitor numbers to the Garden. So, the best on-site cycling experience to be had is riding the mountain bike trail, opposite the Big Idea Garden. You can drive to this theme garden, park and ride your bike from there, across the canal and over the 10 km trail. Purpose built to international standards, the trail caters for competent, intermediate and advanced standard mountain bike enthusiasts. Whether in search of a family or individual experience, the trail will provide the challenges and enjoyment you seek.

Cycling and conservation
Welcome to the world’s first Enduro Trail set within a botanic garden!
With your support, the Australian Botanic Garden Enduro Trail will develop into a truly world class mountain bike trail for riders in south-western Sydney. It will provide a challenging and enjoyable ride, within a rich and diverse botanical display. Help us to rehabilitate and maintain the critically endangered ecological community - the Cumberland Plain Woodland - by not damaging plants, moving soil/logs/rocks or leaving the marked trails.
The Woodland is home to a range of wildlife including eastern grey kangaroos, swamp wallabies, wallaroos, echidnas, brown and black snakes, monitor lizards and eastern bearded dragons. All wildlife is protected, so please do not interfere with any animals on the site. Notify Rangers on 4634 7934 if you see any injured wildlife.
You can find out more about the Australian Botanic Garden on this website, or by visiting the Visitor Centre located in the Central Precinct.
