Snowy River Cycling

Rail Trail Three and Four Day Bike Rides

Take yourself on a journey over rivers, under trees, beside farmland and through forests on the East Gippsland Rail Trail that stretches for nearly 100 km between Bairnsdale and Orbost in Eastern Victoria, Australia. Add the Gippsland Lakes Discovery Trail for an extra 20 - 40 km of gorgeous riding. Just bring yourself, your clothes and a camera while we provide your bikes, maps and information, transport your luggage, book your accommodation and provide a return shuttle service you to your starting point.

Self Guide Cycle Packages

Our tailored self guide cycle tours on the East Gippsland Rail Trail can include

  • Bike hire: bikes come with helmet, pannier bag, spare tube and tools, and breakdown back up. Ebikes also available.
  • Accommodation each night ('Standard' or 'Spoil me' options)
  • Luggage transferred daily to your accommodation
  • Return transport shuttle to your starting point
  • Start from either Orbost or Bairnsdale: there is no advantage riding one direction over the other.

Our three and four day itineraries below include all these services, and are a starting point for you to plan your trip: we are always happy to tailor trips so that they work perfectly for you.

Tailored to suit you.

The packages above are just a starting point for us to tailor a package specifically to suit you. Some of the things you might like to amend:

  • Ebike hire instead of standard, if you need a big of extra oomph on your side.
  • No bike hire. We understand your own bike is special!
  • Happy to carry your own things? Let us know if you dont need the daily luggage transfer.
  • Extra nights accommodation at start or finish of the trip.
  • Rest day: Lakes Entrance is a great place to spend an extra day exploring, or just taking time out of the saddle.
  • More days. Add an extra days cycling near Bairnsdale, exploring Raymond Island and the Silt Jetties, or quiet roads along the Snowy River near Orbost.
  • Less days. You can cycle the trail over two days with a 60 km / 40 km split: if you are up for a challenge, you can of course do it in one!
