Crankworx Cairns: 22-26 May 2024


Crankworx Cairns is the most recent addition to the Crankworx events calendar, having held its inaugural event in 2022. This year, the world’s largest mountain bike festival takes place 22-26 May and is the first Australian stop on the Crankworx World Tour, which also visits Rotorua, Innsbruck and Whistler. Distinguishing itself by traversing  sculpted dirt art and rowdy rainforest tracks, wild racing and arguably the most raucous crowds to ever grace a Crankworx (save perhaps Heckler’s Rock). Oh, and shoeys. This tropical paradise meets the ultimate experience in mountain biking and is a must for any visitor. Further info, schedule and tickets at

The Crankworx World Tour is a multi-stop series of mountain bike festivals, bringing together the best mountain bike athletes to compete in elite-level competitions in a variety of disciplines. It began in Whistler in 2004 and its festivals have since grown into the largest events of their kind in mountain biking.

Cairns is in Tropical North Queensland, a region renowned for its natural beauty, superb beaches and the only place in the world where two World Heritage Sites meet – the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.
