Here it is folks – the fully supported trail-riding tour is back!
Join AllTrails as we head off-road again for the first time since our very successful Cairns to Cape York rides a few years ago. With spectacular overnight stays and all meals provided, you will be immersed in the Australian bush by day and be immersed in your pampered accommodation by night – with the usual full ride support you’ve come to expect from Australia’s premium bicycle touring provider.
The 210km Goldfields track is a composition of four separate tracks each with their own character and charm. Riding a new track each day, we begin at Buninyong (near Ballarat) and head north to Bendigo through spectacular country with a long gold mining history (where you will still see modern-day prospectors out with their detector kits). Along our route we have some great accommodation in the renowned spa country town of Daylesford, enjoy a night at the beautiful RACV Resort at Creswick, and stop in at Castlemaine with its historic streetscapes filled with reminders of its rich gold mining days. Why not bring a non-cycling partner? This tour has plenty to do for those not cycling each day. Check out the Pricing tab for special rates for non-cyclists. These overnight stops and other local villages en route offer plenty of great restaurants, cafes, wineries, galleries and spas to aid in your daily afternoon recovery after a day on the bike… it’s the best of both worlds – the challenge of cycling through the rugged Victorian bush, and the famous AllTrails support, accommodation standards, and good old-fashioned service.
