Overview

A six-day tour cycling from the highest mountains in Australia to the untouched and wild hinterland of East Gippsland. You will cycle on a variety of roads, almost all unsealed, from quiet regional roads, to forest tracks that rarely see a vehicle. Each night you’ll stay at simple but comfy accommodation, all meals are included in the tour plus a few cheeky morning teas. 

Snowy River Cycling allows you to enjoy your time on the bike as much as possible, by providing you with an experienced local guide and support vehicle.
