Find somewhere nice to leave cars in the crime-ridden city of Bendigo for the week. Get our gear & get on our bikes & ride into town, for dinner. Go to train station to catch train.

Sunday 21st Swan Hill - Lake Boga

In the morning we will take in the sites of Swan Hill. After lunch we will head towards Lake Boga.

Monday 22nd Lake Boga - Koondrook

We head towards Koondrook on back roads via Murrabit. Exactly which road we travel will depend on advice from the locals as to which way is the more scenic etc.

Tuesday 23rd Koondrook - Cohuna

Itinerary not set here. It will either be Koondrook – Kerang – Cohuna, or Koondrook – Cohuna direct followed by an afternoon ride to some rocky bumps south of Cohuna. Option two is the most likely at this stage, but once again, we may go with local knowledge.

Wednesday 24th Cohuna - Echuca

Off to Echuca-Moama today. Not too many back-road options but the main road should be fairly quiet.

Thursday 25th Echuca

Rest day! Do what you like in Echuca-Moama. Overnight in our deluxe cabins again.

Friday 26th Echuca - Elmore

Once again, exact route not finalized, but we will be going through Rochester for a must do photo-stop in front of the Hubert Opperman statue. Overnight in Elmore.

Saturday 27th Elmore - Bendigo
