Ride High Country

Cycle tourism is key to Tourism North East's organisational goals, with the High Country recognised as having the strongest regional cycling credentials in Australia.

The Ride High Country masterbrand has been developed to unite the 12 cycling destinations of north-east Victoria to leverage and grow its cycle tourism strengths, including:

  • Rail Trails: the largest rail trail network in Australia, with almost 300km of trail to explore, including the longest sealed trail (Murray to Mountains 116km) and the longest continuous trail in Victoria (Great Victorian Rail Trail 134km)
  • Mountain Biking: with seven dedicated mountain bike parks, the region features more than 50% of all the formalised mountain bike singletrack in Victoria, including Australia's only internationally recognised 'EPIC Trail'
  • Road Cycling: the region boasts six of the toughest 15 road cycling climbs in Australia in addition to endless rolling valley roads to keep all road cyclists well and truly satisfied
  • Gravel Grinding: with quiet graded roads, seemingly infinite firetrails, pine forest logging roads and alpine peak roads (only accessible in the summer season), the High Country is every gravel cyclist's dream.
