Unfortunately Pacific Park is not that flash. Give it an hour and you will be bored, but there is always a plethora of bogans on pit bikes to laug.......look at. They are closed all of August for maintanace, so maybe they have tidied up the track a bit. Not much other choice around here though unfortunately. I'm going out to give the bike a run this Sunday to get it sorted for the Cookadinia Vinduro next weekend, but i'm only a 15min drive away.

Anyone know of a good trail riding/camping spot not too far a drive from Sydney I can take my 10 year old to over the Xmas Hols? Something better than Pacific Park!

I am not sure if open over Xmas but Raymond Terrace 30minutes past end of the F3
and Singleton Club lets you ride around their tracks (one for kids and one for grownups) for 40 dollars a day, usually the last 2 sundays of each month.
They are tracks, MX tracks but not like your normal overly Jump and rythm sectioned tracks, so any age bike can have fun on them.
I wish there were more areas with trails etc on private property but I can't find them. Not close to Sydney that is.

Binacrombi & Lockmaree, near Goulburn
Has anyone been to these riding spots. What are they like? Do either of them have a good MOTOCROSS track to ride?
Cheers,
Ken

G'day Ken,
mate i used to ride Lockmaree a LOT years ago, excellent trails, very good amenities (old house with bunks and kitchen,clean and tidy,well set up.) They , the original guys (Rob and Wayne R.I.P both) were building an MX track, but was more a grass track back then, you'd be best off ringing and speaking with the current owners whomever they are for an update. Like i say, the trails were excellent, a couple reasonable smaller hills, lots of single track  but not the type you need bark busters for, some flowing over grown two wheel tracks etc.  The only down side back then was a fair bit of dirt road from outside Goulbourn to get there.

Hope this helps!

Unless Wayne died since June, he's still there to my knowledge. I spoke with Paul Bower current owner of Lochmaree and he did'nt mention it.
   I haven't done Binacrombi for a few years but the Yamaha forum does regular rides at Lochmaree each year. The trails are awesome, great set up accomodation. The mx track is pretty forgiving for old bikes even IT's can jump ;) They restrict the amount of riders on the property which is good and trails range from easy to hard to cater for everyone.
Check out there website: http://www.lochmaree.com.au/

Let's face it some dirt bikes were never meant to be ridden.

I went to have a look at Mr VMX last year at Barleigh Ranch, looks to be a vintage friendly track. I am led to believe that you can just turn up and ride on a practice day (for a reasonable fee).
Can anyone confirm this and advise if you need to also join the Hunter MCC or do they accept members of other clubs, HEAVEN etc? Does anyone know what ride/practice days the track is open for over the next couple of months. I've had a look at the Hunter MCC website but they don't have a 2013 calendar as yet.

You can just turn up, pay your fee and ride. They organize it well. They ask you what kind of rider you are and give you an appropriate coloured wrist band to put on your bikes cross bar pad. Then they run closed practice sessions for I think 20 minutes, maybe 30, just for your group. That way, all the boy racers go out together, the juniors go out together and then the rest of us go out together. Then they close the track, water it and go through the sequence again. The track is definitely VMX friendly but a good Motocross test. There are a couple of table tops but they are tame.

It's called MX Central. This is the calendar http://www.mxcentral.com.au/calendar.php

Come join Heaven though, we are a bunch of friendly enthusiasts, some just out for a bit of a ride and some get into the racing, but all there to keep Motocross what it should be, a good time, and the whole club is very welcoming.
