Rug up for an unforgettable winter experience on this 6 Day Australian Bicycle Tour and Holiday. Enjoy the beauty and charm of Canberra, its wetlands, reserves, surrounding villages and ever-changing scenery.

A highlight of this bicycle tour are two truffle-themed experiences. Discover the link between the highly-prized gourmet delicacy, black Perigord truffles, and the Eastern Bettong; a tiny marsupial almost hunted to extinction who was nicknamed by ecologists as ‘nature’s engineers’.

Visit the historic Changi Chapel, take part in a truffle hunt at The Truffle Farm, and enjoy a twilight tour of Mulligans Flat Reserve with Bettong Buddies. Stock up at Crookwell’s Lindner Sock Factory and tour the Woodlawn Eco-Precinct and Bioreactor which produces green electricity from Sydney’s putrescible waste.
