Our new 15-day Australian Adventure includes a plethora of popular Australian attractions: lush eucalypti forest, twisty roads, romantic beaches and those adorable kangaroos. After arriving in Melbourne, we’ll begin the Adventure with a ride to Apollo Bay along Australia’s world famous and stunning Great Ocean Road. We’ll board an overnight ferry to Tasmania where we’ll enjoy four days of riding on this unique and beautiful island featuring great local food and seasonal rain forest wilderness on lovely rural back roads. When we return to the mainland we’ll head for Sydney via Victoria’s High Country and the Australian Alps as we climb Australia’s highest accessible road in the Snowy Mountains and ride up and down the Great Divide. We’ll also enjoy rides along the cliffs of the Blue Mountains, observing them though the blue mist that gives the mountains their name. We’ll end our Adventure in Sydney.
This tour uses primarily comfortable, middle class hotels with an occasional 4-star hotel.
