2013 Australia Ride Stage 10 – Kalgoorlie to Adelaide via Nullarbor

Date :
18 Jul 2013 – 4 Aug 2013
Distance :
2220km
Ave. Daily :
139km

On this first stage of the journey (Stage 9 of Australia Ride) we cycle east from Perth to the beautiful town of York before taking in the rugged farmlands of the Wild West as we wind our way down the old goldrush trail inland. Enjoy an overnight in historic Merredin before crossing the famous rabbit-proof fence just west of Southern Cross. Our last day takes us to Kalgoorlie where the modern-day miners dig for their riches.

On the second stage (Stage 10 of Australia Ride), we cross the famous Nullarbor plain, a truly unique ride and lifetime achievement for many. The Nullarbor, as the name implies “no trees”, is awe inspiring for its vast distances, large expanse of rich red earth, remarkable wildlife, amazing sunsets and night life, matched only by the tremendous towering cliffs and rugged coastline of the Great Australian Bight.

We ride one of the longest straight stretches of road in the world (146km) and as we head to the coast keep your eyes peeled for Southern Right Whales, who migrate north from Antarctica, and is often seen rearing their young calves.

The Bight is also home to, and popular hunting grounds for the Great White shark, luckily the only puncture we’d likely to experience will be a tyre one. Other wonderful highlights and attractions include Eucla Telegraph Station, complex cave networks, and the unique opportunity to experience great camaraderie, new formed friendships and having cycled one of the longest highways in the world!

Join us on one stage, or do them both.

Nullarbor bike tour

We pride ourselves on organising adventurous, action-packed cycling holidays in interesting and scenic destinations and this fully supported tour fits the bill perfectly.  The tour is made up of a 4-day ride from Perth to Kalgoorlie, then a 17-day ride across the Nullarbor from Kalgoorlie to Adelaide.

We organise everything that you will need for the duration of your time with us – food, accommodation, luggage transfer, bike mechanic, great company and much more – so you can pedal away each morning without a worry in the world except which way to look to take in the atmosphere of the small towns we pass through, the vastness of the Australian desert, the amazing scenery of the Great Australian Bight, or any one of the locations in between.

Riders that participate in our ‘point to point’ tours enjoy camaraderie, sharing laughs and memorable experiences with their fellow cyclists, knowing that the renowned AllTrails expert preparation of the ride allows them to sit back and relax those weary cycle legs at the end of each day.
