    Default Dirt jump spots in the Melbourne area

    Hey hey,

    Just trying to get an idea of how many DJ spots there are around Melbourne, looking to get a DJ bike (if any one is selling one let me know) and do some dirt jumping and maybe pump track riding over winter to train. So far I have found a spot at the Kensington Skate park which looks a bit average, Windsor siding pump track/DJ's and some dirt jumps out in Altona medows.

    Will no doubt hit up some BMX tracks too, but ideally some proper jumps would be good.

    Cheers

    Default Kensington Dirt Jumps

    Hey, I've also been looking for some dirt jumps around Melbourne. The only thing I've really found is the Kensington Park. I live a 5min pedal away from the Kensington Park but you're right it's a bit shit. I have been sessioning it a bit on my DH bike, but I'm also keen to get a DJ bike. Let me know if you want to meet up sometime for a sesh or go explore some other jumps. My number is 0449062813

    Hey man,

    Yeah I used to live in Kensington and would quite often be down there on my full sus, I remember meeting one guy down there that was talking about getting some funding to re-build it with 3 DJ lines and a pump track...my guess is that never got off the ground.

    I really need a little bmx or DJ bike before I do anything as there is no way my DH rig will be any good, if I get something sorted though I'll let you know.

    Was down at the Kensington Park yesterday and bumped into a local guy riding the skatepark. He told me the council is completely remaking the dirt jumps as well as a pump track in the next couple of months.

    Will post here if I see any progress.

    Default Dirt Jumps around Melb..

    Hey guys,

    Few of place I know of:

    1. Seaford / Fankston - have a couple of jumps tracks, as well as a pump track,
    2. Windsor - I hate it, lines are crap, poor (if any) maint.
    3. Clayton BMX track - not bad, but definately suits BMX's,
    4. Knox BMX track - state level track, again suits BMX's better as its a bit tight.
    5. And Warrigul (Baw Baw Shire) have just built a new BMX track also, quite good qual.

    My 2c.

    I might be able to part with my black market for the right price. What price range were you guys looking at?
