Back country cycling adventure

Come and enjoy the roads less travelled from the comfort of your bike.

Time to refuel

It's not all about the cycling!

Enjoy the wide open spaces

The glorious South Burnett region at its most tranquil.

We can't wait to ride with you

Come see the hidden gems of the South Burnett region.

Cycling Adventure in the Aussie Countryside

If you're looking for a change from your "been there, done that" Australian cycling holiday destination, come with us to discover Australia's best kept secret in Queensland's south-east corner, the South Burnett region.

It's so much more than just the Rail Trail!

Tour Highlights

Set in the foothills of the ancient Bunya mountains with warm summers, mild winters and rich volcanic soil, the South Burnett region is the perfect place for a back country cycling adventure through vineyards, farmland and a hinterland that begs for discovery.

For the last few years the South Burnett region has grown in popularity because of its traditional dairy, peanut and agricultural industries and now boasts some wonderful wineries due to its enviable mediterranean-style climate. Located on the top of the Great Dividing Range in Queensland, the undulating hills, small country towns, patchwork farmland and eucalyptus forests make for an incredible gravel riding adventure.

All this, just 3 hrs from Brisbane.

What sort of cycling experience do I need?

VéloRoo Adventures are not about setting the fastest time, but having the best time! 

If you are comfortable and have some experience riding in a group, you’ll be fine. Our adventure peloton sizes are capped at around a dozen people. 

You need to be comfortable riding at least 50 kilometers in a day. The South Burnett is not mountainous, rather undulating. Each day there will be a couple of solid short pinches up to a couple of hundred meters in length. Panoramic view points are rarely at the bottom of a hill climb!

The South Burnett offers a wonderful range of riding surfaces from good country road tarmac to smooth dirt roads and rail trails.

Don’t think mountain biking rocks and jumps, but by their nature, unpaved roads can offer soft or loose gravelly sections or areas that may have some slight erosion after seasonal weather.   

What sort of bike do I need?

You will need something that can handle dirt and gravel roads: a Gravel Bike, Mountain Bike or Electric Mountain Bike. Give us a call to discuss the suitability of your bike if you are unsure.

A word from our clients

Don’t take our word for it - here's some comments from happy VeloRoovians

Having recently organized a Sunshine Coast Cycling tour with Steve at Veloroo, my husband and I were extremely impressed with how professionally run the tour was conducted and how reassuring it was to have Julia in the support vehicle. His local knowledge of the beautiful quiet country roads was second to none and being able to accommodate our different fitness levels was brilliant. Would have no hesitation in recommending Veloroo for your Cycling Tours. We will definitely be back.August 2020
I have lived on the Sunshine Coast for the past 5 years and am familiar with the roads and rides... BUT Steve proposed an adventure through the Mary Valley, which was absolutely stunning! The VeloRoo tour was lead extremely well, with updates on the roads ahead and how each section should be approached. If you are looking for a tour guide to take you on a ride, I highly recommend VeloRoo.Nov 2020
