Hi tourers, do yourself a favour and came along on this discovery ride.
We’ll be riding along the fascinating Coorong National Park and the Limestone Coast; we’ll be visiting quaint fishing villages and out-of-the-way hamlets, there’re numerous highlights along the way such as the Birdman of the Coorong; Cape Jaffa; Tantanoola Caves; Princess Margaret Rose Caves; The Granites; Jacks Point observatory; Tower Hill Reserve; etc.
The last day we’ll be riding along the beautiful Port Fairy-Warrnambool bike trail.

The scenery will prove to be spectacular.
