    Cowra Cycling Tour

    Our Central West Cycle Tour takes in the sights, sounds, and smells of the beautiful natural and rural landscape, and we literally stop and smell the roses when we can, ensuring that the tour is as immersive as it is enjoyable, fun, and memorable.

    Starting at Cowra, and taking in Woodstock, Canowindra, Gooloogong, Eugowra, Grenfell, Greenethorpe and Koorawatha, the picturesque Central West Region is known as “the golden circle of food production”.  The rich red duplex soils of Cowra are responsible for growing grain, vegetables, wine, and meat, all of which you will be able to sample as part of your tour.

    Our tour routes are carefully selected to ensure that 90% of the roads on which we tour are bitumen or good gravel, low in traffic and suitable to most fitness levels. 

    For people who love war history, the region has a rich and fascinating history and together we’ll visit the Peace Bell and POW Camp and then of course the renowned Japanese Gardens, Age of Fishes and Museum and the Canowindra Historical Museum. I’ll tell you some tales about the bushranger Ben Hall and his hold ups, shoot outs and hideouts.

    And all along the way you’ll meet the welcoming and friendly locals who have enthusiastically embraced this new cycling tour and are looking forward to providing you with country style hospitality.
