30 Years Of Gravity

Thredbo is celebrating 30 years as Australia’s Premier Mountain Bike Park.

Thredbo is Australia’s home of mountain biking and offers the only summer-long chairlift access in the country with more than 34-kilometres of trails. Each year the resort attracts thousands of mountain bike enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

To celebrate 30 years of mountain biking, we’ve created a three-part video series looking back at the progression of mountain biking over the past three decades, featuring some of the country’s iconic personalities of the sport.

The first episode focuses on the ’90s when mountain biking first came to Thredbo.
