On Wheels

Many travellers just can’t deny the universal pleasure of being on two wheels, exploring a new landscape, a new adventure. The romance of a bicycle ride through the countryside and the art of cruising along and waving ‘hello’ is a pastime that captures the mood of ‘G’day’ across the Australian continent.

Mountain-biking thrill-seekers can ride deep into Australia’s rich and varied landscape of alpine regions, coastal tracks and desert areas. Often, a bicycle is the smartest way to take in the scenery and tune into the pace of island life or the community vibe of a wine region.

Australia boasts some stand-out regions that have invested in cycling infrastructure, and offer numerous cycle-friendly itineraries; from cruising through world renown vineyards with the ease of an E-Bike to testing peak performance on a challenging climb. Serious enthusiasts can time their trip with the Tour Down Under, the only Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) World Tour event hosted in the southern hemisphere.

Thrill-seekers can explore world-class destinations off the beaten track on 2 wheels or even 4, with many lodges offering a quad bike adventure or the option of an Australian safari tour in a custom-built 4WD.

Many of the luxury lodges offer bicycles, E-bikes or mountain bikes for guests to use at their leisure to enjoy a solo ride, or a ride together as a family.
