Grand Tour: Mawson Trail
About the Route
The Mawson Trail is a 900km endurance test through South Australia, taking in key regions from Adelaide north to the Outback and Flinders Ranges. Your bike will need to be well prepared, suitable for off-road conditions, and equipped for carrying back packs, camping gear, food and plenty of water. This is a big test of endurance, with varying terrain and elevations requiring excellent fitness.
However, for those looking for a unique adventure, this is a challenge that can be tackled over multiple days, with dozens of accomodation options along the way at many small and medium sized townships.
