The Margaret River Mountain Biking and Winery Tour is definitely not your standard Margaret River Wine Tour in a minivan or coach that follows a predictable route. At Surf N’ Dirt Tours we like to start the day with a Mountain Bike Adventure in the morning before spending the afternoon enjoying the finest wines, gourmet produce and scenic locations that Margaret River has to offer.
Unlike the big bus tours, we pride ourselves on having a flexible schedule that can be tailored to suit your preferences. Your expert local guide Paul Berry will discuss the range of winery, scenic and gourmet food options available to you on the day. Paul calls it “fun, spur of the moment personalised touring!”
Boranup Forest offers some of the most incredible scenery to mountain bike through in all of Australia. The karri trees, with their long pale trunks grow up to 80 metres high and are the 3rd tallest type of tree in the world. The mountain bike trails within Boranup Forest are well hidden and are difficult to locate without a guide.
Paul knows all of the best old logging trails and single tracks within the forest and helps maintain them throughout the year. Exhilarating downhill runs and the odd log jump characterizes our Margaret River Mountain Biking tour which is perfect for all levels of mountain bike riders. The scenery that we ride through is breathtakingly beautiful and we regularly stop to take photos. If you are lucky then you might spot an Emu, Kookaburra or Bobtail lizard watching on as we pedal past.
Kick your feet up and relax after the ride as a tasty sit-down picnic lunch is provided to you in a secluded location within the stunning forest setting. Relive the best aspects of the ride as you enjoy delicious food and great company.
After lunch we embark on a winery tour of Margaret River’s finest boutique wineries and local gourmet producers. Taste awarding winning wines from the region and sample chocolate and olive oil as we visit the local gourmet outlets. Learn about the history of the wine industry in the region as we customize the stops to suit the group’s preferences.
The cost of this tour is only $150 per person.
If you are the type of person who wants a fun, relaxed wine touring experience without the crowds then this is the tour for you. It not only offers you the chance to discover some of Margaret River’s best boutique vineyards and natural wonders but you will also interact with local wildlife and enjoy a memorable mountain biking adventure.
