Track Directions Map
The Coastal Motocross Club operates predominantly from Blackwood Park, behind Penguin on the North West Coast of Tasmania. The track is about 7 kilometres from Penguin, in the picturesque Dial Range Recreational Reserve. The track is on a private lease near a designated trail riding area.
Being central to the North West Coast population and close to the highway has the benefit of quick and easy access for both riders and the viewing public.
