Cycle Queensland is Queensland’s largest fully catered cycling holiday.

Our tent city has first aid, mechanics, bike shops, masseurs, a general store, tourist information, licensed bar, toilets and hot showers. We serve up three generous meals a day and even transport your luggage.

All you have to do after a day on the bike is collect your bags and put up your tent. In the afternoons and evenings there is plenty to do and see: take a tour, party-on at the local inn or just chill out at the picturesque campsites.

For full route details please see the full itinerary page here.

We have plenty of pictures from Cycle Queensland 2017 on our Facebook page so you can see for yourself what it’s all about. And if you’re still undecided, check out the “10 reasons 2 ride” that are sure to convince you!
