The Tour of WA is the chance to experience WA like never before!
The Tour of Wa is a 6 day cycling adventure (organised by the Tour of Margaret River) through scenic south-west WA. This is the first time that this type of recreational cycling has occurred in WA. It is very similar in style to the annual Great Vic Bike Ride that is held in Victoria (with a new course each year). And even though it is held by the organisers of the Tour of Margaret River race, it is a ride (not a race).
Experience the South West region of WA like never before. This is a six 6 day adventure in the region of Margaret River and surrounding districts. Best known for it’s wine and surf beaches, the Margaret River region is so much more. You’ll be cycling through the Karri and Jarrah forests and into the apple and fruit orchards. Stop off at Manjimup for the locally grown truffles. Or try the local cider in Bridgetown or the wine in Margaret River. The days may be for riding but the nights are for exploring the town.
Camp out each night at the local caravan park or stay in style at the local hotel and pubs. This will be a true country experience.
