  • Absolutely mesmerising trail - BUKKKING brilliant! Huge thanks to Buck for the shuttle, hilarious banter and guidance. We will be back!

  • I organised a group of mad keen mt bikers from South Aussie to ride 5 days in Derby and it was totally amazing. The trails are second to none but what made it easy for me was Jude, Buck and all the staff from Vertigo. They couldn’t have been more helpful. The package was set up to include everything we needed from hassle free airport transfers, beautiful accommodation, fabulous bike hire, food package and of course shuttles to the best tracks I have ever ridden. If your thinking of a Mt Biking Holiday go no further than contacting Vertigo to set you up for an amazing time.
