And what about to take bike related liquids, such as tire sealant, brake fluid and so on. Are there restrictions about it in Australia? Moving next month, looking forward to ride Ourimbah, Awaba and Blue Mountains trails!

Save the hassle and buy it here,you can buy all the stuff locally or via the online places.

The thing is my company pays for my relocation, so I'm going to take my home workshop to save money.

Fair enough, I can't help you much further other than start your search at our customs site:

You're gonna be fine man. I was shitting myself about bringing my bike over.. Obviously there's like no feasible way to clean every spec of dirt from a used mountain bike. I declared i could potentially have dirt on my declaration (you're given this before you land), and explained how i wiped everything down with alcohol wipes etc and cleaned everything as much as possibe. They didnt even open my bike bag! Literally didnt even look.

What company do you mean? I live in Texas, USA, and I have a big workspace for my motorcycle. I plan moving to Louisiana but the workshop is the main thing that's stopping me. I'm gonna contact a moving company (Eagle State to State Moving seems the best (https://eaglestatetostatemoving.com/interstate-moving-company/)) but I'm still worried 'cause I invested a lot of money, time and effort in the workshop. It's not like moving a piece of furniture.

Hello, I just moved to Sydney until december and brought my dh bike with. I've been reading this post but the areas you mentioned seems to be more oriented for AM bike than dh bikes. I was looking to some videos of Hornsby and seems to be fun but seems to be some climbing to do, right? How long would it take to push my bike to do some decent lap?

If there is anyone who may be interested in joining me in the adventure, don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for your help,
Francisco

Hornsby is XC. You would HATE it on a DH bike. And During a Sydney summer (expect up 40 deg c) you'll likely melt.

Google Mona Vale DH (or try Trailforks). You can ( I think) shuttle it but it can also be a push up if you want.

If you want real DH, you'll need to go up to Ourimbah (its pretty mellow for DH (most of us ride it on AM bikes) but Awaba (just outside of Newcastle) is a great fun track. If you're in Sydney, you'll need a car tho.

I'm afraid there isn't much in Sydney for DHers now. Plenty if you own a AM bike tho!

Thanks man, ya unfortunately I only have a dh bike, in Vancouver is very useful haha. I'm here for three months and brought it to go to Tasmania at some point more than anything but I would also love to get out around here as much as I could of course.

I will check those areas you mentioned and already planning to rent a car at some point and get out.

Cheers

You’ll like Maydena then!

Thredbo is fun for a weekend in the DH but there’s more on offer for an AM bike.

Hahaha I kinda imagine would be hard to find something like van close to Sydney.

Thanks for the information. I will try to go and check it out.
