Cycling in Australia is a fantastic adventure no matter where you go. This enormous country is known for its epic beaches and you can certainly spend as long as you like exploring coastal routes. However, there’s so much more to discover and two-wheeling is a great way to do just that. Mountain ranges, huge lakes, tropical forests and, of course, outback landscapes all conspire to spoil you with some of the most diverse landscapes on Earth. 


No matter what kind of ride you’re after, you can find cycle routes in Australia’s stunning landscapes that suit you. Need long training rides? Enjoy smooth tarmac as far as the eye can see. After touring bike trails off the road? They’re everywhere. From family-friendly loops to epic mountain passes, every type of bike adventure resides here. 


Exploring the many personalities of Australia would require multiple lifetimes but as every route is a new adventure, there’s always something exciting around the next corner. Don’t forget your spares, it’s easy to stray into rural areas where self-sufficiency on the bike is essential.
