The Great Western Tiers region has always been a destination that is extremely popular with touring cyclists. The safe and low-traffic country roads that run the length of the region offer a series of trails for touring cyclists to experience the best that Tasmania has to offer.
Four cycling trails have been developed to include a series of engaging and inspiring podcasts, which bring the region to life. These interpretive audio tracks offer an added layer of depth, helping visitors to understand the essence of our region and to connect with the people and stories which are part of the fabric of the Great Western Tiers.
The Great Country Ride, Great Gourmet Ride, Great World Heritage Ride and Great Caves Ride all have unique stories and natural attributes that will inspire touring cyclists. The free Great Western Tiers Cycle Tour Podcasts can be downloaded from this website, and supporting cycling maps can be obtained from the Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre at Deloraine. The trails are marked by colour-coded cycling trail totems, which help to ensure cyclists stay on track.
Each ride is approximately 70 kilometres in length, taking in the majority of the townships and attractions the Great Western Tiers has to offer. Accommodation, cafes, restaurants and camping grounds are available throughout your journey.
Set your own pace and take the time to experience the sights, tastes, smells and stories of this wonderful region. Your memories will be unforgettable.
