Far North Wilderness Bike Tour


Far North Wilderness Bike Tour

First run in 2001 …



After a very successful sold out tour in 2021, we will be taking a break in 2022. The Bike Tour is run by a group of dedicated volunteers to raise funds for the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC). For those of you who have experienced the Tour, you would understand the huge amount of work that our volunteers put in, not only on tour but in the months preceding as well.

This year, many of our core volunteers are not available and some are needing a well earned break, so in recognition of these circumstances, it has been decided that the 2022 tour will not be going ahead.

Although disappointing, it will be an opportunity for us to look at how we can reimagine and enhance your experience in our wonderful region!

We greatly appreciate the support from Riders over the years and of course we genuinely thank our Volunteer crew who have made the Bike Tour such a unique event!

Best wishes from CAFNEC and the Bike Tour crew

The new 6-day format of the Far North Wilderness Bike Tour has been launched, with the route concentrating on the northern part of the famous Atherton Tablelands and showcasing the beautiful World Heritage rainforest of the Wet Tropics, south of the Daintree River in North Queensland.

Organisers have planned a gorgeous scenic cycling experience through some of the most beautiful parts of the Far North, with lush tropical rainforest, cool waterfalls and freshwater creeks. In response to rider feedback, the tour has been shortened and the riding less technical and demanding while still exciting enough to appeal to a wide range of riders. This is certainly a 6-day trip of a lifetime through some of Far North Queensland’s best scenery on wilderness mountain trails.

So what keeps so many riders returning year after year? It must be the capped numbers, friendly crew, fabulous food, camaraderie and most of all the spectacular scenery. Book now for six days of awesomeness!
