Orbost – Wonthaggi

Snowy to Sea

For the first time in over 25 years, we’re so excited to return to Orbost for the start of the Great Vic Bike Ride 2023. Taking in all this picturesque region has to offer, this year’s Great Vic will take you riding (and camping) alongside the Snowy River before heading through Gippsland’s breathtaking regions where you’ll soak in the sea air en-route to Wonthaggi.

In addition to the incredible scenery, each day provides a new riding goal (which you can take at your own pace) before rolling into the heart of each town and setting-up camp. You’ll then get to enjoy an afternoon and evening of entertainment, activities, and the warm hospitality that only a regional town has to offer.

With three, five and nine-day holiday options starting from just $138 per day, this is your chance to enjoy a week in another world.

Here’s a taste of where you’ll be riding at this year’s Great Vic.

From packing tips to training plans, we’ve got your back with everything you need to get Great Vic ready.


“It’s like going on holiday with a big group of your best mates.”

Beginning in 1984, Victoria’s favourite annual regional ride is a rite of passage for people who ride bikes and has established a proud reputation for being much more than a cycling event. The Great Vic is a rolling bike festival that pedals to a new town each day, setting up camp where riders can soak up an evening of entertainment.

For seasoned campaigners, it’s an annual catch up with 3,000 friends. For others, it’s the first time they’ve ridden more than a few kilometres at once – let alone nine days in a row. But for everyone, it’s a great escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life in and around tranquil and inviting regional towns, and this year promises to be no different.
