There's also a chance to explore the amazing World Heritage Great Barrier Reef or head off on a self guided cycle along the east coast of the island. On a series of guided cycles, explore the wetlands, river systems and coastal landscapes of the Townsville surrounds including a cycle/hike tour into the rainforest on day 1.
Back on the coast, sample the growing culinary scene in Townsville's Palmer Street and take in the balmy evenings while based in hand picked accommodation. Not to be missed is cycling just below Pepper Pot Mountain where the Ross River flows through Townsville before meeting the Coral Sea. It's a fantastic way to spot birdlife, visit gardens and swim in the landmark Riverside Lagoons. On other days, you can take historical rides through WW2 sites, the Pallarenda wetlands and the trails and tracks of Magnetic Island.
Arriving at the port on Magnetic Island, which is accessed via a short ferry ride from the mainland, cyclists will be immediately transported into a tropical paradise of palm tree lined sandy beaches fringed by coral reefs. Together with the planned biking routes there will be time to walk on trails to scenic vantage points and the opportunity to join a snorkeling trip to explore the undersea wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. This cycle trip is perfect for those seeking a combination of active exploring, relaxation and swimming.
