Travel under your own steam from the highest point of the country to the lowest, through vast alpine landscapes, quiet country roads and peaceful forests.

There are few journeys which offer the opportunity to travel under your own steam from the highest point of the country to the lowest, through vast alpine landscapes, quiet country roads and peaceful forests. This journey comes with a sense of achievement, rewarded by first views of the sparkling Saphire coast. Beginning from the swish alpine village of Thredbo or the highest road at Charlotte Pass, the journey starts with an ascent on foot to the top of Australia, Mount Koscuiszko (2,228 metres), followed by a mostly downhill cycle to the shores of Lake Jindabyne. Continuing through an incredible diversity of scenery and passing through some of the prettiest towns in NSW, this is an epic cycle route you'll remember for years to come. Enroute to the coast, your journey takes you through the Monaro region and the Snowy Mountains national park. Here, historic properties and rolling hills abound as you pedal from the alpine zone where you will be joined at points by herds of Kangaroo, a variety of birds, emus and wombats. Nearing the beautiful Sapphire Coast you'll cycle past dairy farms and meander pretty forest tracts. At night stay in rural retreats, a first class B&B, heritage properties and alpine and beachside accommodation where your hosts are friendly and willing to impart their vast knowledge of the region. Diving into the ocean at Tathra is a fitting conclusion to this ultimate cycle experience.
