"Jump lines, tabletops, gap jumps, whale tails, berms and rollers!"

If you are a local rider and understand what this means, then we want to hear from you!

City of Whittlesea has worked with Youth Services Australia, as well as local riders, to develop a draft concept plan for a dirt jumps track suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. Dirt jumps are structures made from compacted soil that are used primarily by BMX and mountain bike riders to perform tricks on.

The dirt jumps track, to be located at the Painted Hills Recreation Reserve, will be made permanent should the 12-month pilot program prove a success. Painted Hills Recreation Reserve was chosen as the site for the pilot program due to its central location and proximity to shared path networks and public transport.

Once the dirt jumps track at Painted Hills Recreation Reserve is built, Council will remove the unauthorised jumps at Lauries Field Conservation Area in Doreen. Under the 12-month pilot program, the track will be regularly inspected.
