Published on 09 June 2023


Mornington Peninsula Shire’s innovative community-driven initiative BMX and MTB Strategy won the Parks and Leisure Australia (Strategic and Master Planning category) award on 8 June 2023.

As a result of winning this award, the Strategy has been shortlisted for the National awards with Parks and Leisure Australia to be held in October 2023.

The Strategy sets out the future of recreational BMX and mountain biking on the Peninsula.20221113-IMG_0330.jpg

In 2021, we saw a surge in children and young people embracing bike riding activities on the Mornington Peninsula, with many creating their own jumps within park lands and on roadside reserves.

In response to the community’s interest in bike activities, we prepared a Recreational Facilities for Mountain Bike and BMX Strategy.

The Strategy aims to ensure dirt jumps, skills parks and pump tracks are in appropriate locations and designed together with the community.
