Mountain Bike Day Tour

1 Days

100% off-road riding! Spend a day riding two great mountain bike locations north west of Melbourne. Breath fresh, country air and test your skills and fitness on well maintained mountain bike specific trails. Brewery lunch included.


Have a fun day out while breathing fresh country air, exploring some fantastic trails and
testing your fitness.

Mountain bikers of all levels will enjoy the network of trails in two iconic locations.

Travel out of Melbourne to Woodend where the handmade trails in the Wombat
State Forest will have you weaving through trees on a fairly easy circuit with some great

challenges. This popular, well-established trail network is 17km long and takes us around 2
hours to complete.

We then lunch at Holgate’s Brewery. This for some is the highlight of the day! This
Brewery has an incredible beer range all brewed on-site and the food is perfect fuel for the
afternoon ride. Take it easy on the beer though as the best riding is to come!

A 35-minute journey up the Calder highway brings us to the township of Harcourt just

outside of the gold mining township of Bendigo. Millions of dollars have been poured into
a 34km network of Green, Blue and Black trails although most trails are for moderate or
advanced riders. Built by ‘Dirt Art’ these groomed trails test your all of your skills and fitness
while delivering big berms, big smiles and stunning views. We again spend a couple of hours
here or for less experienced groups of riders we can use an easier hand built trails network
closer to Bendigo.

After 4 hours of riding, a great lunch and a memorable adventure, we turn back to
Melbourne. Mountain biking is an all body workout requiring great concentration. You may
be exhausted but your mind and body will keep reminding you of the epic day you had.

We get back into the city around 6pm.

Our guide Glenn's first comment was "there are no silly questions". Although I think we challenged that comment, you will not find anyone with more information about the Great Ocean Road. The spectacular scenery was only enhanced by Glenn's narratives and his willingness to accommodate our changes to his schedule. A well paced tour that is well worth the fee.

I took a solo trip to Australia on Feb/ March 2015 and this tour with Pierre of Natural Treasures was one of the highlights of my holiday. I would happily recommend it to anyone who wishes to be shown and informed about the many treasures along this beautiful stretch of coastline.

We were more than happy with our three day tour of The Great Ocean Road and the Grampians with Jeremy of Natural Treasures Touring. The small group tour was just what we liked: leisurely, knowledgeable, good food, great accommodation. We had time to really have a good look at the things that make the area so beautiful.
