The newly established Central West Trail takes cyclists on a loop through New South Wales' Central West Region. There is everything you would expect from rural Australia including sweeping views, lonely roads and charming towns packed with character. The route traverses the territory of the Wiradjuri people, the first nations people of this area. It is also an area significant to Australia's more recent past, as it is within these vast landscapes that the burgeoning colony's prosperity was built, first with gold, then upon the sheep's back.

Today, relics of this area's lucrative pioneering history remain in the many interesting towns and villages that exude the laconic humor, charm, and hospitality for which rural Australia is famous. While the aesthetic may not have changed much in the last 100 years the region has adapted, playing to its strengths, with an abundance of food, drink and accommodation options that are big on quality but low on pretense. During the trip, an escort vehicle and driver will ensure you have peace of mind as you make your way between towns. Picnic lunches will be prepared during the cycle day and tour representatives offers daily briefings and dinner suggestions.

Otherwise, you are free to cycle at your own pace and take in the ever-changing landscape of grazing country, national parks and reserves. Accommodations are handpicked in a combination of country pubs with shared bathrooms and family-run motels with private facilities, friendly hosts and tasty food options. The sense of achievement as you roll into Gulgong to close the loop on the last cycle day is a true highlight on this groundbreaking cycle trail.
