|Victorian Coast Cycle (Women Only)
Australia 8 days ex Melbourne
Hop on your bikes and enjoy spectacular coastal views and native animals on this unique itinerary. Australia is an isolated continent in the
southern hemisphere and the state of Victoria has everything from beautiful coastline to rainforests, mountains, and desert. On this trip we
ride along the spectacular coastline, where ocean swells from the South Pole hit against the cliffs of the coast and carve the rock into
amazing shapes such as the 12 Apostles in Port Campbell National Park. In the inland Grampians National Park we see some of the many
animals and plants that are unique to Australia and learn more about the original inhabitants, the Aborigines, who have lived here for
thousands of years. We also visit one of Australia’s most famous surfing beaches as well as visit a well known winery for some wine
tasting before heading inland and meeting some of the Aussie characters who call the rural areas home. Every day is full of new adventures!
All profits go toward drought relief efforts in the rural areas visited.
There is also a co-ed version of this tour, check here for more details.
