  • Killalea State Park Mountain Bike Trails.

    Killalea State Park is a must see if your in the Illawarra region. This bike ride isn’t your typical adrenaline fueled adventure flowing around single tracks and steep downhill runs. Instead it’s a nice change of pace for a Sunday lazy ride with unbelievable scenery and a great place for a dip.

    The park consists of 2 spectacular beaches, The Farm and Mystics beach. There’s also Killaea Lagoon and Minnamurra river. This area is one of the most beautiful spots in the Illawarra. It’s an excellent place to come and spend the day.

    Killalea State park has a 5km track that loops around the lagoon. This is ideal for a nice walk with brilliant views of the farm and amazing scenery of Killalea lagoon and The farm as a back drop. There is plenty of bird life in the lagoon which includes pelicans and swans. You can also ride a bike on this trail. But just be mindful of people walking on the track. Keep to a nice easy pace.

    After the Killalea lagoon loop you can either walk or ride down towards Mystics beach. This is an out and back track. It’s well worth the effort of going to Mystics and having a look. It will not disappoint. It’s one of my favorite beaches in NSW.

    There’s also a short trail behind Mystics which takes you to Minnamurra River. The bush behind Mystics beach is also very picturesque and the color of the water in the Minnamurra river is something else.

    So to recapped, this is a lazy bike ride and you need to be mindful of walkers. Take a bike chain with you so you can lock up you bike and go for a swim or a leisurely stroll on the beach.

    Killalea State Park will not disappoint.

    Other fun facts about Killalea and busy times to avoid going for a ride,

    The Park Run

    Every Saturday morning at 8am is an event called the Park run.

    There can be over 100 people doing the 5km loop around the lagoon. So not the ideal time to go for a ride. But a great time to bash out a 5km jog.

    The Farm Markets

    The first Sunday of every month markets are held at The Farm with around 90 stalls. This is a great day out with live musics and fantastic food.
