Looking for a wheelie good way to keep the kids active? Get their pedals pumping at the Saltwater Creek BMX Facility! This outdoor track at Long Jetty is perfect for families who love getting out on two wheels.
The track is suitable for all ages
The track offers fast-paced fun for everyone, from toddlers on balance bikes right up to tweens and teens who want to practice their tricks.
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.
There’s lots to see and do in the Long Jetty area
The track is adjacent to the Saltwater Reserve Playground and the Long Jetty Foreshore walkway. This means you can really make a day of it – watch the kids practice their jumps and slides, then follow the walkway together to explore the beautiful foreshore, exciting playgrounds and historic jetties that make this area a firm favourite with local families.

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.
