You'll need to be a committed cyclist to ride nonstop around the Goldfields, with so many historic, gourmet and picturesque distractions just begging you to get off your bike and linger awhile.
Luckily, riding around the region is a breeze thanks to an abundance of cycling and mountain bike trails. Ride through lush forests and vast bushland, cruise around peaceful lakes, take in stunning vistas in national parks, and explore the region's rich heritage in delightful villages and gold rush towns.
Memorable rides in legendary locations
Take the fat tyres and hit the exciting bush tracks that make up the Goldfields Track, with their challenging climbs, descents and creek crossings, brilliant single and double track blasts, and the chance to tackle gold rush engineering remains. There are shorter sections for more casual rides and opportunities to pause in the villages to replenish. Just don't get too caught up in the galleries, shopping, wineries and farm gates around the villages.
