Australia: Two Wheels Down Under
From the Great Ocean Road to the misty passes of Tasmania, ‘Down Under’ offers a truly unique cultural and geographic adventure!
We start this 21-day tour in Melbourne, one of the Southern Hemisphere’s most exciting cities, renowned for it’s beaches, cuisine, and world class wines. After a relaxing day in this beautiful seaside city, our warm-up ride leads us around scenic Port Philip Bay.
A short ferry ride across the bay leads to the start of the Great Ocean Road, one of the world’s most spectacular coastal roads and truly one of the most stunning rides you will do in your lifetime. Hugging the steep und rugged coastline, this road winds alongside the wild and windswept Southern Ocean. Our breathtaking rides takes takes us by surf beaches, historic ports, whale lookouts, craggy mountain ranges, and thick sub-tropical rainforests. Foremost of these many highlights are the 12 Apostles, craggy limestone towers rising majestically from the ocean.
Returning to Melbourne, we board the ‘Spirit of Tasmania’ for a 10-hour sailing across the Bass Strait to Devonport on Tasmania’s northern coast. ‘Tazzie’ is renowned for it’s embrace of cycling culture – it’s ‘festivals’ bring cyclists from all over the globe to compete in these famous races. The excitement and atmosphere of racers and spectators is something every cyclist should experience.
Riding through Tasmania is truly unique among our tours. Pristine sandy beaches, azure waters, breathtaking ocean views, and distinctive pink granite peaks assault the senses with their beauty and uniqueness. Each day sees us retire to small friendly towns that welcome us with their art galleries and cozy cafés.
