This is a 4-day self-guided tour, mostly on cycle paths, that allows you to explore the beautiful Bunurong Cliffs Coast and Great Southern Rail Trail. The route travels through coastal towns and along the Great Southern Rail Trail and takes in ferny groves, beaches, coastal cliffs and farmlands. Cycling sections are 80% on bike paths, 20% on road and the last day of the tour offers two different options for a longer or shorter ride.

A shortened version of the tour is available for families that takes place exclusively on the rail trail and cycle paths so is very safe for young children. The minimum age for participating on the tour is 6, and the children should be able to ride a bike confidently without training wheels. Please contact us for more information.
