Kids can head up a concrete path to reach the top of the gravel track, then zoom down the slope and around the circuit, swerving around corners and launching off jumps along the way. There are some flat sections, but most of the track will really give their muscles a workout, with plenty of ups and downs to navigate.

The track is adjacent to the Saltwater Reserve Playground and the Long Jetty Foreshore walkway.

Saltwater Creek BMX Facility, Long Jetty

Facilities: There are covered picnic tables, BBQs and toilets at the Saltwater Creek Reserve. There’s also some shady areas under the trees, perfect for a picnic!

Safety: Helmets must be worn, and it is recommended that riders wear elbow pads, kneepads and wrist guards. The track is in full sun, so make sure you pack the sunscreen too! It does get quite busy here on weekends. Mid-week is a good time to visit with very young or less confident riders, so they can enjoy the track without worrying about bigger kids rushing past.

Location: Saltwater Creek Reserve, Tuggerah Parade, Long Jetty. There is a carpark at the reserve.

While your in the area, why not check out Tuggerah Lake Cycleway Playground, The Lions Park or Jubilee Playground too!
