Self Guided Cycle Tours

A self guided, or independent, cycling trip provides you with the complete freedom to travel to your own schedule with the full support of knowing the key logistics have been taken care of for you. Explore Australia at your own pace as you embark on the ultimate self guided cycling experience.

Be your own captain and navigate the back lanes, streets and roads of coastlines, quaint towns and rural countryside, with detailed route descriptions and maps to assist with navigation, with cares and worries limited to how often you want to stop to take photos.

You’ll uncover a heightened connection to your destination, immersing your senses in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the destination, all at a relaxed pace with groups that require only two people to operate. Your worries will be left on the pavement, as all luggage and accommodation details will be taken care of by our adventure specialists, leaving you free to pedal and stop wherever or whenever your heart desires to fully soak up the delights of the region.

On our point to point journeys, after a day of cycling, you’ll find your luggage has been transferred to your next accommodation, typically charming two, three or four star hotels, inns, or vineyard homes that embrace the local flavour and style. With modern 21-speed bicycles or electric bikes supplied, you’ll feel the wind in your hair in no time at all.
