NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Did a few laps after a uni day in Bathurst on Saturday - what a great track. Track is now out to over 8km and has a lot packed into the space - lots of berms, log rolls, fast / flowy bits, short climbs, some fresh looking timber ramps and jumps. Could do with a few direction signs but take your time at junctions and you will figure it out. Suggest you take the B lines on your first lap, or at least stop and look first, as some of the features look innocent as you approach but have a surprise element awaiting (glad I saw the sign on the drop and gap jump just before I committed !!).
The loose gritty surface is slippery but there is almost always a safe grassy run off if you can't make the turn (about ten times for me).
If you are in town it is a good ride - if you are passing through it is a worthwhile detour less than ten minutes off the highway.

Do you have more information?

If you've been off into the grass make sure you pull all the cat heads out of your tyres before riding in other locations.

All good - I am conscious of not migrating dirt and seeds between locations.
Plenty of them there. You definitely need sealant if you are riding this track. When I finished riding I pulled about a dozen out - most were followed by a hiss of air until the sealant did it's job.
The taller prickles trackside are still green and soft but give it a month and they will be brown, hard and eager to stick into shins.
