The Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Masterplan provides a regional approach to the consistent and high quality development and maintenance of mtb tracks and provides a platform for the development of the Greater Hobart Regional MTB Hub as an innovative and exciting riding destination.
The Master Plan is a cooperative approach between Cycling South, the Wellington Park Management Trust and the Councils of Clarence, Glenorchy, Hobart, Kingborough and Brighton, and supported by the State Government through Sport and Recreation Tasmania's Trails and Bikeway Program. Preparation of the Master Plan was overseen by a Project Steering Committee consisting of representatives from the above agencies.

Waterworks Valley Pump Track
Aug 2011. Hobart City Council has constructed a pump track at the old quarry site on Waterworks Rd in South Hobart.
