3 Rail Trails Cycle Experience

Enjoy a cycle away from the traffic. Bring your friends, your family or your club and explore the historic southern Gippsland Rail Trails. You can choose to bring your own bikes, book your own accommodation or have Australian Cycling Holidays look after the lot! See our pricing options below.

4 days of amazing cycling with your choice of accommodation booked, bicycles supplied and/or bicycle transfers with Australian Cycling Holidays. Prices are given for Groups of 3 adults or our Family Special which includes 2 adults and upto 4 children 15 years and under. Please ask us about larger groups or families!

This cycle experience includes the Bass Coast, Great Southern and Grand Ridge Rail Trails. On the Bass Coast Rail Trail love cycling along the thunderous Bass Coast and over the century old Trestle Bridge at Kilcunda. Have some lunch and continue along to Wonthaggi and the State Coal Mine, if you like take an underground tour.

The Great Southern Rail Trail takes you through wonderful old towns full of Arts and Crafts, home grown produce, old buildings and fantastic views of the southern Strzelecki Ranges, Wilsons Promontory and emerald green countryside. Look out for wombats, Echidnas and wallabies as you cycle along. The colourful birds are a treat.

The Grand Ridge Rail Trail is a great cycle to the small town of Boolarra through the forests and trees. It is truly to be enjoyed. Boolarra is a little town full of history and great cafes. It has a huge park and playground just perfect for a picnic. Cycle return back up the hill to Mirboo North, home of the Grand Ridge Brewery. A perfect day to end your 3 Rail Trails Cycle Experience.

    An excellent family Easter holiday in every aspect. Angela and Rob took care of all the organising and perfectly tailored the agenda to suit us. They encouraged us and supported us from start to finish. We enjoyed the stops along the way, the challenge was just right and we are very proud of our achievement. Day 1 – Leongatha to Foster, stopping at Meeniyan for lunch at Moo’s, and at Fish Creek for a wander in the gallery and shops, then on to Foster for a hearty meal at the local pub and staying the night in a comfortable lodge/motel. Day 2 – Breakfast at the motel with great coffee and then on to scenic Port Welshpool which we would have visited a bit more had we not been so slow on the trail… In the afternoon , the men went on to Grand Ridge for a downhill thrill while we women went back to the sanctuary of the charming and beautiful Alkira cottages.
    Day 3 Breakfast at Alkira was a real treat with local produce aplenty – some of it even sourced from the rail trail! We set out from Bass to Wonthaggi for another scenic ride including some fabulous coastline views.
    I commend Angela and Rob for their amazing organisation skills, their cheery welcome, their friendly encouragement and their attention to every detail. With sincere appreciation, J&G&M&M
