4th Australian Mountain Bike Summit
Collaborate, Educate, Proliferate

The Australian Mountain Bike Summit is the only conference in Australia dedicated solely to the mountain bike industry.

The Summit brings together key industry people to discuss and deliberate the challenges and opportunities currently impacting the Australian and international mountain bike markets.

The program includes a range of keynote sessions, workshops, networking events and opportunities to ride Mt Buller's world-class trails.

Mt Buller has joined forces with Flow Mountain Bike to launch a new look program for 2017, with the theme 'Collaborate, Educate, Proliferate'.
