Something for everyone, on and off the bikes

The Downs Burnett Cycle Trail highlights the natural splendour of this stunning region. All year, people can visit historic sites, wineries, cities, towns, villages and festivals. There is something for everyone on and off the bike, catering to all types of experiential adventurers.

The warm hospitality of local people in cafés, restaurants, hotels, B&Bs and farm stays adds to the highlights of your journey along this route. The route has been signed with temporary directions signs, so look for the DBCT logo and the direction arrows on roadside posts and occasionally edge markers where no post was available. Black arrows are clockwise and yellow arrows anti-clockwise. Remember these are designed to be reminders and prompts, so make sure you have either paper maps of your own, or have downloaded the Ride with GPS maps supplied here.
