Big Mountain in partnership with Tasmanian Mountain Bike Adventures present 3 days and 3 nights of MTB action at the world acclaimed Blue Derby, Tasmania, Queen's Birthday Weekend.

Derby, Tasmania is a world class MTB destination. In April 2017, Derby was host to the second round in the Enduro World Series (EWS). This was the first time the event has come to Australia and its no surprise that Blue Derby got the nod. It is not only Australia’s premier mountain bike destination but stands tall against other international MTB destinations. The trails run through temperate rain forests and cater for all abilities. Created by World Trails, many of us are unlikely to ride better trails than these in our life time!
