Cycle a Rail TrailView trips

The Central West Cycle Trail of NSW continues to grow in popularity for cycling. Travellers come for the classic Australian landscapes as well as rich gold mining heritage, native wildlife, wilderness walks, the sociable cycling community, Aboriginal cultural experiences and the many country charms.

A self-guided or supported cycling trip along the Central West Cycle Trail is the best way to take in the rural views, lonely roads and charming towns packed with local character.

There are multiple ways to cycle the Central West Cycle Trail. The classic 7-day route includes stays in Mudgee, Gulgong, Dunedoo, Mendooran, Ballimore, Dubbo and Wellington, and can be cycled on a self-guided trip or with the camaraderie of a supported tour. Or if you’re on limited time, the itinerary of the self-guided Central West Cycle Trail Highlights holiday bypasses Dubbo and takes just 5-days.

Along the Central West Cycle Trail there are opportunities to explore local attractions. Spot giraffes and tigers at Dubbo Zoo, admire silo artworks, sample some of Australia’s finest wines at a cellar door, sip a schooner at a character-filled pub, enjoy freshly baked scones, or simply ease into the relaxed pace of country life.
