Falls Creek

The Falls Creek checkpoint (which if you’ve just made it up the Back of Falls, you’ll probably be very glad to see) is at the Gateway Cafe in the Falls Creek resort.

It’s one of the busiest of our checkpoints as riders in the 130km, 200km Alpine Classic, 200km Buffalo Sunrise, 250km ACE, 320km Ultimate and the 2-day 250km Alpine Raid all stop off at this point. Take the time to stop and admire the view over the valley before jumping back on your trusty steed and heading down the 30km descent into Mount Beauty.

We know that you’ve got a lot of distance in your legs when you get here, so there’s an abundance of carbs available to help get you back to Bright – as well as a host of our brilliant volunteers, and water and other drinks.

After this checkpoint you’ve only got one more climb to go before you reach the finish!

The Falls Creek checkpoint closes at 6:00pm.
