Principal Cycle Network

The Queensland Government has worked closely with local governments to develop the Principal Cycle Network Plans and Priority Route Maps to guide the delivery of a connected and cohesive cycle network across Queensland.

The Principal Cycle Network Plans are intended to provide a future Master Plan of cycling routes and represent both the existing and desired future cycleways. Therefore, the plans should not be used for navigational purposes.

The Far North Queensland Principal Cycle Network Plan and Priority Route Maps show the cycleways for Mareeba Shire and can be found on the TMR website.
