Stay in relaxing accommodation in picturesque Beechworth and explore the stunning, gourmet region that is North East Victoria. This is a different type of adventure.
The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is the perfect way to discover the ever-changing landscapes of North East Victoria – from natural bushland to luscious farmland, and breathtaking hidden valleys nestled amongst some of Australia’s most spectacular mountain ranges; pictures of this trail simply cannot do it justice. The best way to truly experience this beauty is to cycle it and breathe in the fresh air of the region.
The trail covers 100km of specially built, sealed, off-road trails, winding between quaint country towns such as Wangaratta, Beechworth, and Bright. Exploring this trail you will have the opportunity to taste some of Australia’s finest gourmet produce, handcrafted beers, and acclaimed local wines. You will ride past the historic tobacco kilns, and around pine plantations giving an alpine feel, you would not expect of Victoria!

We will be there to support you along the way with a car and trailer carrying spare tyres, pumps, water and of course delicious, home-cooked snacks and meals to keep you going! The hardest parts are taken care of, all you have to do is indulge your sense of curiosity and adventure by showing up!
We will be staying in clean and comfortable cabin accommodation at the Beechworth Holiday Park, nestled in the foothills of the Australian Alps on the banks of Spring Creek.
You will need to be confident on a bike, as there are some small inclines, however, the trails are gravel and bitumen, and suitable for beginners. So embrace it! Give this a shot! Cycling is such a liberating feeling, after a weekend like this, you will want to drive your car less and less. Taking part in this adventure could really be the start of a whole new chapter of your life.
Suitable bikes: hybrids, mountain bikes, commuter bikes. Not suitable for road bikes.
Friday night, everyone will have a bit of a drive so we will arrive at our accommodation when suits you. We will have dinner for you and help get the bikes in the trailer and have you ready to go for the next morning.
An early start we drive to Bright (bikes go in our trailer) and we ride our way back to Beechworth stopping along the way, where we feed you and rehydrate you. There is a bit of a climb back to our accommodation, so after we will do a stretch/yoga session to relieve achy muscles. You will then get a good hearty feed before heading to bed.
Pack up accommodation and an early car shuffle to put cars at the end point! We then have a big breakfast feed up before an easy downhill ride into Wangaratta. We will have lunch along the way, followed by a drink at the pub to finish off another awesome weekend of adventure!
