Shimano Bike Buller MTB Festival and Picnic in the Park 2018

26 February 2018

The Shimano Bike Buller Festival brings all styles of mountain bikers together with a packed schedule of racing on Mt Buller’s internationally-recognised trails with events for cross country, downhill, gravity and pump track riders as well as for kids.

With great expectations for another superb event, entries are now open for the 2018 Shimano Bike Buller Festival that will see three massive days of racing at Mt Buller, Victoria from the 10-12 of March, 2018.

Over 700 riders are expected to compete at Mt Buller for the 10th edition of the event, with an even larger number of friends and family who also come to the alpine resort to spectate and enjoy the range of other, non-riding activities on offer. There will be a greater emphasis on gravity in 2018 that will see the return of the Mt Buller Super-D, and the Gravity Gods title for the key gravity races; The ABOM downhill, Gravity Enduro (Round 4 of the Victorian Gravity Tour) and the Outlaw all-mountain trophy.


The 2018 weekend will be an incredible celebration of all things mountain biking with a broad range of races for all types of riders who can enter just one event, or a combination of them all.

The three-day celebration of mountain biking will again coincide with the popular ‘Picnic in the Park’ food, wine and music festival held in the Mirimbah Park at the base of Mt Buller. For more information on Picnic in the Park, please click here. There will also be an extensive Bike Expo and plenty for non-riders to enjoy, including events designed for spectators and a range of social activities.

The revolutionary GT Bike Buller Festival brings all that is great about mountain biking to the one location for a huge weekend of bikes, single track, fresh air and good times at a spectacular mountain top destination.
