Cycling Tours - Queensland/ New South Wales


Scenic Rim

The scenic rim offers an infinite abundance of contrasting scenery and a captivating insight into some of the less traveled parts of NSW and Queensland. From Mt Tamborine with its award winning wineries, to the green mountains set amongst luscious unsurpassed rainforest, to the arid farmlands of NSW. The scenic rim offers our riders a little taste of everything and is perfect for those who want to get off the beaten track.

"It was very enjoyable to be off the beaten track on our cycle tour. We loved experiencing the small towns in the hinterland that you wouldn't normally see if you cycled or drove the main roads. The people were very friendly and very kind to us on our bikes. Very enjoyable trip all in all."
Jamie and Sandra White Canada
