Murray to Mountains Self-Guided Cycling Tour

Private Tour With Transport From Melbourne

The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is one of my favourite experiences in Victoria and when I started Good Times Tours I wanted to provide a great value solution for groups based in Melbourne looking to enjoy this fantastic trail. My business is setup to take groups of up to 10 in size away camping/hiking and cycling around Victoria so there is the option to camp with this tour (all camping equipment provided) With regards to bicycles, we own a fleet of 10 bikes that are available to rent or feel free to bring your own.

What makes the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail so special is the amazing scenery along the way and combine that with visits to cellar doors and gourmet food and you really have a great weekend.
