About Victoria

Located on the tip of Australia's east coast, Victoria is Australia's second-smallest state and Australia’s second most populated state. A wealth of diverse regions and attractions are packed into this compact area, with sweeping coastlines, pristine beaches and national parks and forests.

Victoria’s Regions; Melbourne, Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, Mornington Peninsula, Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, Phillip Island, Geelong and the Bellarine, Great Ocean Road, Goldfields, Grampians, the High Country, Gippsland and the Murray all offer an abundance of cycling opportunities.

Victoria has alot to offer the cyclist

Approach Victoria's diverse regions from exceptional perspectives as you cycle in on purpose-built bike trails.

The best things in life on a bike

Exchange knowing nods with passing cyclists as you cruise regional bike tracks and trails. Stumble upon sights unseen from the highways, and fill your basket with gourmet treats from small producers. Sit a while on riverbanks and seashores and generally experience a forgotten idyll.

The other side to Melbourne

Melbourne's a seriously bike-friendly city, boasting bike lanes and paths plus a number of trails around the CBD. Travel along the river past bush and billabongs, via major landmarks and always near a pit-stop for refreshments, Melbourne-style.

Tales from the rail trails

Breathe in the fresh country air, cruise through changing landscapes and learn about local history on a journey down one of Victoria’s many rail trails. What was once a network of lightly constructed railways used for logging is now a web of scenic rail trails criss-crossing the state. Whether you're travelling on foot, on horseback or on two wheels, these trails provide a great opportunity to explore the region at your own pace.

Victoria's collection of rail trails caters for all ages and fitness levels. From steep climbs to flat rides, there are plenty of options to choose from. Most trails are surfaced with gravel or dirt and are perfect for walking, mountain bikes and horses. Some sections of the trails are sealed and can be navigated by touring bikes too.
