I have recently rediscovered the Appin motocross track run by the Macarthur District Motorcycle Club. Open nearly every Saturday, Sunday & Tuesday of the year for practice at very reasonable rates once you join the club, this is an excellent MOTOCROSS track run by a helpful and professional team. The track is a true full length MOTOCROSS track, quite technical, and takes a while to string together a good lap. Situated on the side of a hill with uphill and down hill sections, rough in some places with little traction, smooth and tacky in others with lots of traction, fast and slow off cambers, some vintage friendly table tops and most importantly, fun to ride. All this and it is a 50 min run down the M5 from my workshop in Marrickville Sydney.

3 different level kids only tracks for the little guys, a shop and clean toilets. I'm wrapped and living the dream!!! ;D

Nowra MX track, MX track, two kids tracks and a 1000 acres of bush trails, best all rounder riding close to Sydney. A big group of us, dads and Kids go down at least once a month.Our kids gone off MX tracks and love the Bush Enduro loops. So great to see young kids out riding with all that space and great for the dads to head into the bush with them. You can camp there for a small fee, very basic. Open Friday to Mondays and all school holidays. I should be keeping this a secret. Cheaper if you join.
We also go to Louee a couple of times a year and heading out there again in September, best place to ride, great MX tracks, great bush Enduro loops and facilities.
Lochmarree is not bad, MX tracks are not the best, bush tracks are ok, but for my money Louee is the place.

Big Scotty - I'm re-joining Heaven VMX and looking for somewhere around Newcastle to practise - Singleton looks good. Can't find a current calendar - do they have regular practise days? What are the fees?
Cheers, Paul

Anybody on here in the central or mid west of NSW that can point me to a good VMX friendly track?
I am looking for something about 10hrs from Brisbane and the same from south.

Hi EML,

Just North of Gulgong is Free Flight MX Park. It has some excellent riding with a great VMX track around the back with awesome berms and a great woop section. Definitely worth the visit. I have also been told the Goanna Tracks outside Coonabarabran, is a great place to ride as well.

Thanks KJ.
Not sure sidecars and "nice woop section" go hand in hand  :D  Murray Bridge had two of them and it sucks the guts out of passengers.
I'll look at both of them on utube if they're up.
Cheers.

Can you ask MA/MNSW about whether sidecars can run on this track?

G'day
We are not associated with ma or mnsw,no licence is required, there's no racing as in a start gate but once out the gate human nature takes over,we usually run between ten to fifteen minute motos and on a normal day you will get in about five
