Visitors to Gardens of Stone National Park can ride or bike the Crown Creek fire trail, a section of the iconic Bicentennial trail, which stretches for 5,330km along the Great Dividing Range of eastern Australia from Cooktown in Queensland to Healesville, near Melbourne.

The trail allows you the total freedom of riding through this unspoilt and dramatic country as well as a sense of the pioneering spirit of the horse riders of old. Taking in the jaw-dropping views and beautiful rock pagodas on horseback or from your bike is not to be missed for wilderness adventurers.

Spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to ride the trail, and you must be self-reliant in the bush.
