The Route

3 day route map

The three-day ride is the perfect taster of this famous event.

On this short but sweet option, you will join us at Rutherglen and ride through to Yarrawonga, Glenrowan and Benalla. You will ride alongside the mighty Murray and weave through the enchanting giant gum trees that line the banks.

You’ll make new friends, get a feel for the Great Vic experience, and maybe wish just a little bit that you had a few more days to soak it up.

Arrival Day | Rutherglen

Rutherglen - Great Vic Bike Ride

Rutherglen has plenty of offerings, many focusing on the region’s rich wine and produce. Once you’ve settled in to the campsite you could also have a look at the local rail trails.

Otherwise it’s definitely worth taking a wander through town sampling one of the many local eateries or wineries.

Day 1 | Rutherglen – Yarrawonga (55km)

The Great Vic is full of surprises — like when it ventures outside of Victoria. On our way to Yarrawonga, we will cross the river at Corowa NSW, a town which is famous for being the birthplace of federation.

There will be a lot of riding alongside the mighty Murray today, and the giant gum trees that line the banks.

Situated between the Murray and Lake Mulawa with it’s ghostly river gums, Yarrawonga offers you another chance whet your appetite or wet your legs with its local eateries, river beaches and water sports.

Day 2 | Yarrawonga – Glenrowan (95km)

Glenrowan - Great Vic Bike Ride

Today’s riding will be mostly flat across open plains which your legs will appreciate as we get closer to the end of nine days of riding.

However, there are a couple of little climbs today near the Warby-Ovens National Park and as we pull into Glenrowan, a town which is of course famous for being the location of Ned Kelly’s last stand.

If you’re still undecided about whether Australia’s most well-known bushranger is a hero or villain you could visit the Ned Kelly Museum to get his full story and make up your mind.

Day 3 | Glenrowan – Benalla (52km)

It’s time for the 2018 Great Victorian Bike Ride’s last stand as we travel from Glenrowan to Benalla.

There will be more views of the vineyards and King Valley.

As we pull in to town, we will get a lovely warm welcome from the locals and come together for one last time before heading home with a bag full of memories.
