Dungog PedalFest is a weekend of cycling fun for everyone

Returning to Dungog this September, with a selection of family friendly, competitive and mountain bike events.


Dungog is a classic small country town surrounded by the sort of countryside bicycles are built for, now even with its very own mountain bike park at the Dungog Common.

Scenic, interesting, historical, easy and challenging… Discerning cyclists love this landscape and flock each year to the weekend celebration that is Dungog PedalFest.

It’s got something for everyone, kids, families, competitors, dawdlers, historians, E bikes – you name it. It’s very friendly event and a lot of fun. There is comfortable accommodation in hotels, B&Bs and farm stays or entrants can camp at the Dungog Showground. There are rides suitable for children and rides that might stretch the muscles of the fittest and keenest athletes. There’s bitumen, gravel roads and single track. There are inclines to exercise the lower gears and some exhilarating downhill rushes….

Best of all, there’s precious little traffic…. It’s life on a bike!!



Found at the base of the Barrington Tops, Dungog is nestled along, one of the purest and healthiest rivers in NSW, the Williams River.
It is an hour or so north of Newcastle and about three hours from Sydney, or a good day’s cycle inland from the sea.
This is Gringai Country, land of the Worimi Nation, place of sparsely wooded hills even before the settlers arrived.
Dungog – and you can come by train – both the NSW TrainLink XPT and Hunter Line Intercity service trains stop at Dungog (On non-XPT services, bikes are carried free!).



Get a free raffle ticket by registering online by the 20 September or enter on the day at the registration desk at the Visitors Information Centre, cnr Dowling and Brown Sreets dealing in notes, coins, credit/debit card and face-to-face good cheer.
