Australian Silo Art Tour - Tour Itinerary
You arrive at Melbourne International Airport and transfer to your hotel. Melbourne has been voted as the world's most liveable city. There are fabulous parks, quirky laneways, restaurants and cafes and innumerable bars and nightclubs.
Tonight you will enjoy a Welcome Dinner with your fellow riders before collecting your bike and heading off in the morning.
This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider Melbourne and begin your journey heading to North Eastern Victoria staying the night at Cobram. Today we will visit some fantastic Street Art in Benalla before viewing Silo Art in the small country towns of Goorambat, Devenish, St James and Tungamah.
Today we continue the Silo Art Tour travelling via regional country roads. The first stop is Rochester but we also visit Art Work at Nullawil before arriving at Sea Lake for the night.
Today we continue to head west toward South Australia. The roads will be quiet, but they are great for motorcycling. We can take our time visiting Silo Art at Lascelles, Patchewollock and finally at Waikerie in South Australia where we will spend the night.
Today we have only two examples of Silo Art to visit. Karoonda and Coonalpyn. However, they are well worth the visit and it is a great days motorcycling. Bordertown has an interesting Bakery that we can have breakfast at before leaving in the morning.
We are now heading back east again. We stick to the inland highway for a while and then turn north so that we can visit Silo Art at Rosebery, Brim, Sheep Hills and Rupanyup before visiting the amazing Stick Shed at Murtoa. Many people would argue the Silo Art we visit today is the best for the trip. We will leave you to decide whether this is correct. We will then travel on to Stawell where we will spend the night.
Today's ride is a little different when compared to the past few days. No Silo Art today but it is a fantastic ride. We are heading south to the coast travelling through the hills and valleys of the Grampians National Park. If you would like to see Australian Wildlife and fantastic views, this is the day. Time permitting, we will stop at the Bay of Islands which we think is one of the best examples of formations along the Great Ocean Road. We will spend tonight at Port Campbell before heading off again in the morning.
Although you will have had an introduction to it yesterday, today we travel the best parts of the Great Ocean Road. We will visit the Twelve Apostles, Gibson Steps, Loch Ard Gorge and more. Take the opportunity to take a Helicopter Flight over this part of the coast. It is something you will not forget. We will stop for lunch on the beach at Apollo Bay or Lorne before heading for the seaside town of Torquay for the night.
Today is our last day on the bikes but we still have one more example of Silo Art and one example of Street Art that we would like to show you. We will visit the old Cement Silo's at Fyansford before taking a Ferry across the bay to Mornington. From Mornington we will spend some time riding the "other side of the bay" before reaching the end of the trip at EagleRider Melbourne. While on the Ferry, keep an eye out for the local dolphins which like to travel with the boat.
Tonight we will have a farewell dinner at a local restaurant near your hotel.
Today you will drop your bikes off EagleRider Melbourne before heading off on your way home.
