1200 km one way, Flat/Hilly, Medium, 14 to 16 days.
Ride from Brisbane Airport to the Sydney Opera House via beautiful deserted beaches, pristine lakes, rainforests, cattle country, big rivers, huge views, ferries and holiday villages full of fun stuff.
Don’t have enough time for the whole journey? Then split the trip. We have mapped this ride in easy access steps so you can choose the sector you want to ride. Buy each sector separately or buy the whole lot as a Bundle Special/Epic Journeys which will save you lots!
Start at Brisbane Airport and finish at the stunning Sydney Opera House. If you don’t want to cycle into Sydney (which is very busy and not cycle friendly) you can take the mapped route exit around beautiful Lake Tuggerah on the cycle path and take the train in from Tuggerah Station. Cycling out of Brisbane is safe but a little industrial. If you wish to skip that it is easy to train to the Gold Coast and start from there.
