6 Day Rail Trail Bike Tour
Getaway for a self-guided cycle tour exploring the East Gippsland rail trails over 6 days through tranquil and natural surrounds. The East Gippsland rail trail passes through farmland and forest through the low hills between the coast and the mountains in some of the greenest and most fertile country in Australia that still remains relatively undiscovered. Huge timber bridges, spanning rivers and forested valleys are a feature of the trail. With just a few small towns along its 100 km (62 mi) length, this is a trail of peace and solitude, with sightings of a huge range of wildlife commonplace.

This tour includes a side trip down the Gippsland Lakes Discovery Trail which is a diversion down a forested valley on a former tramline that offers a more intimate trail than the rail trail itself, winding and dipping beside a creek for much of its length.
This trip features a stay in a luxury secluded forest guesthouse(3rd night) who provide outstanding gourmet meals. Limited to just 4 queen rooms, the stay here is suited only to small groups. An alternative for large groups is to stay in the town of Lakes Entrance itself.
*For travel between December 24 and January 1, and over the Easter period a 10% surcharge applies.
