Harcourt is located 140 kilometres to the north west of Melbourne. In terms of mountain biking, Harcourt has been the poor cousin to Castlemaine with the only main trail being the Goldfields Trail. This has now changed with the building of La Larr Ba Gauwa Park at the base of Mount Alexander and the trails are reportedly superb.

The Harcourt mountain bike park offers up 34 kilometres of dedicated trails up to black diamond level.

There is no parking for MTB riders at the park and people are requested to park in town and ride the dedicated path out along Market Street and Picnic Gully Road to reach the trailhead.
