One of the world’s premier off-road biking tracks, the Munda Biddi Trail is being established through the forests of southwestern Australia. Currently stretching from Mundaring to Nannup, it will eventually run for 900 kilometres (to Albany), and is great for day rides, overnighters or longer excursions of a week or more. Purpose-built, cycle-friendly campsites have been built every 35–40 kilometres between towns, with composting toilets, water tanks, picnic tables, an undercover bike-storage facility, sleeping quarters for 25–30 people and cleared tent sites. No campfires are allowed, so you will need to take a stove. The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation is a great source of knowledge and maps on this brilliant ecotourism venture.
Several operators will help you with either guided tours or bike hire for the Munda Biddi and other tracks. Daktari Mountain Biking is an environmentally focused company that will hire gear and help you get out on the trail, with either supported or unsupported trips. Pedal Oz hires bikes, panniers, repair equipment and so on and offers transfers to get you on and off the track.
