Thanks Mate! have you been out there? If so, how big is it ( broad question I know ) but is it a small MX track or plenty of acres. Are we better off to go to JAMS for a park blat as we live in Adelaide so its same sort of distance either way. Cheers

Plenty of acres, several different tracks. Everything from a kids track, enduro loop, (albeit a boring one) and several motocross tracks.

Enjoy. Just make sure you wash your bikes afterwards - that salt is a killer.

As #39 has said....a little boring. But it's ok in small doses.
Just don't ride out of the park and onto the beach. Quite often i have seen patrol cars outside the park.

Yep its still open. I was there on Tuesday, $40 for adults and $20 for kids.

There is the enduro track, intermediate MX track, sand track, kids track and a SX track. Its very dry, dusty and sandy there at the moment.
Some signage and bunting would be handy at Pt G.
I like going to Pt gawler occasionly, especially after a good rain. You'd get bored there if it was your only riding option though.

Dont forget to give your bike a thorough cleaning afterwards!!!!


Cheers

Enduro loop is about 4-5km long.

SuperX and MotoX and an Intermediate track as well. I had a good crash on the intermediate track it is however pretty simple.

Enduro loop is good fun, bit sandy, but nice for a squirt.
