Option 1 | Cottonfields to vineyards

Join us on the first four days of the tour as we ride from Goondiwindi to Stanthorpe. Enjoy the hearty hospitality of the west on day one riding to a working cattle station before cruising through big sky country as the route follows the meandering twists and turns of the Durmaresq river ever westwards. End your ride in amazing Stanthorpe, the heart of the Granite Belt and the perfect place to indulge in some well-earned gourmet delights.

Not so keen travelling too far from the big smoke? Then the last four days of Cycle Queensland are for you. Join us as we ride from Stanthorpe to Currumbin on the Gold Coast. Sample the gourmet delights of the Granite Belt Region before riding through the scenic Border Ranges as the route hugs the Queensland-New South Wales Border and crosses the mighty Tomewin Mountain on the final day.
