Cycle a Rail TrailView trips

Blessed with wide-open spaces connected by quiet country roads, world-class wines and gourmet produce, rare wildlife and some of Australia’s most untouched and uncrowded wilderness regions, Tasmania is an incredible and compact destination to explore by bike.

This is an isolated, intriguing land of craggy mountains and ancient rainforests, wild rivers, white-sand beaches and pretty hamlets teeming with fine food and handicrafts. Such a diversity of outstanding landscapes demands venturing out to discover all its assets at handlebar level.

Watch this space as our self-guided cycle trips to Tasmania are set to expand where you’ll be able to enjoy the incredible Bay of Fires, Cradle Mountain National Park or a visit to Maria Island; then there’s the ancient temperate rainforests in the Tarkine; cycle the stunning scenery of the east coast or around the rural routes of the south coast. If you prefer a guided experience, check out our popular multi-activity trip along the east coast that mixes hiking with biking and kayaking.

Whether you are experienced or are newer to the cycle scene, there are opportunities to challenge yourself, take an inspiring photography excursion or an exciting family adventure; our innovative adventures are designed to get you deep into the heart of this incredible state.
