Victoria’s High Country Harvest is a regional wide event with a pretty fantastic program of cycling activities. Held in May, the festivities are located in the north east of Victoria, bordered by the Australian Alps, Murray River and rolling river valleys to the south.
Several events showcasing the region’s spectacular landscapes have caught our eye – ranging from leisurely or ‘hardcore’ to wined or dined, there’s plenty of options to get everyone into gear.
A winding produce trail through ‘Wandi’, Wear your wellies invites you to don your gumboots and join a gentle cycling adventure tracing the rich history of Wandiligong. Visit farm gates, see local art and stop for morning tea, wood-fired pizza and a hearty Autumn pub lunch.
Next up is the Whistlestop High Tea. Cycle from Huon Reserve on Lake Hume to Tallangatta on the High Country Rail Trail feasting on a progressive homemade high tea at station stops along the way. Take in spectacular Lake Hume views as you journey over the iconic Sandy Creek Bridge into Tallangatta.
Last but definitely not least we have the Ride Beer Feast – a tour, tasting and lunch at Bridge Road Brewers followed by a lavish dinner with a very special guest speaker back at the Cellar Door. From Sam Miranda King Valley to Bridge Road Brewers and back (led by their cycling-obsessed teams) this is the ultimate lunch to dinner cycling experience!
No matter what ride you chose the food and day are sure to be glorious. Jump on Victoria’s High Country website to find out more.
