4 days of awesome trails through state forests, wine country, hinterland, national parks, coastline
and mountain bike parks on Australia’s spectacular east coast.

There’s nothing too technical but it will keep your attention, with new terrain and scenery every day. It’s achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and MTB skills.

At the end of each day kick back and tasty local eats, beers (or wine) and everything Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley have to offer.
