Ferntree Rainforest Lodge is proud to host Australia's best-known international mountain bike race, the Crocodile Trophy which has established a reputation as the longest, hottest and hardest off-road cycling event on the planet.
The race attracts a field of professionals and amateurs from all over the world, including legends of cycling, to test themselves against the demands that only the Outback of Tropical North Queensland can offer.
A race of contrasts, The Trophy takes riders from the beautiful World Heritage Listed rainforest of the Tropical Tableland, to the dusty, endless red dust of the Australian Outback within the space of one day's ride. Some come to win, most finish the race just happy to have survived. The glory is in grasping the "saltie" at the race finish in beautiful Cape Tribulation. The Crocodile Trophy is awarded to every rider brave enough to finish this ultimate survival test.
