Melburnians have a new reason to take those bikes out for a spin, with the opening of the La Larr Ba Guawa Park, near Harcourt in Victoria's Central Highlands.

Boasting 34 kilometres of mountain bike trails and bordering the Mount Alexander Regional Park, the new world-class site has something for every kind of rider, from novices through to two-wheeled professionals. It's also got some cracking views to enjoy while you're cruising along.

Receiving almost $2.5 million in government funding, the park is expected to boost visitor numbers to the area to 25,000, improving spending and creating 57 new jobs in the process.

Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards explained that the park is a huge win for the region, saying "this project will help to put Harcourt and Central Victoria on the map as a new mountain bike destination of choice and build on the popularity of the Goldfields Track".
