Cycling the Trail
CYCLE YOUR WAY THROUGH THE GREAT VICTORIAN RAIL TRAIL’S UNDULATING GUM-LINED FARMLAND.
The trail winds between the small bush township of Tallarook and Mansfield in the foothills of the Victorian Alps. Along the way, the trail takes you from the banks of the beautiful Goulburn River and up the Goulburn Valley, past granite-boulder strewn hillsides, taking riders through numerous small small villages and the townships of Yea, Yarck and Bonnie Doon, great places for a food and drink stop.
Riders pass some impressive infrastructure, the long, dark Cheviot Tunnel and the Bonnie Doon Bridge spanning Lake Eildon. The trail makes its way through rich farmland brimming with birdlife and scattered with magnificent stands of ancient red gums, before finishing in Mansfield.
With so many accommodation options available along the trail, there is something to suit every taste and budget. You can check out Strava segments here and don't forget to share your pics on social media using the tag #greatvictorianrailtrail.
