Ngoolark is go!

Nannup Ngoolark MTB Jump Park officially opened last week (19 June) to add another notch in Nannup’s burgeoning mountain bike network.

WestCycle CEO Wayne Bradshaw and Mountain Bike Manager Marg McIlroy were there trackside as the red tape was cut – along with Shire of Nannup president Tony Dean and other dignitaries, local mountain bike clubs and community members.

Ngoolark, designed by Three Chillies Design, converted a disused motor cross track and features blue and black-rated runs – and complements existing trails in the area.

“With the growth of gravel and MTB options in the area, the wild success of events like Seven and the World Gravel Championships coming to Nannup in 2026, it’s a really exciting time for offroad riding in the area,” said Bradshaw. “It can’t be too long before Nannup joins the likes of Dwellingup and Collie in achieving Trail Town status.”

Ngoolark is situated on Wadandi and Bibbulmun land and is the clan name for the White-tailed Black cockatoo.

The project is federally funded through the Regional Recovery Partnership Program and has benefitted from support from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, DLGSC South West, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and Nannup MTB Club.
