Great Western Tiers Cycling Trail - Great Country Ride

Cyclists at Entally Estate by Rob Burnett
A flat ride through scenic countryside and historic townships, the Great Country Ride provides two options depending on the direction you are heading. Traveling west from Launceston, the inbound tour begins in Hadspen before leaving the main highway to explore the district’s English-style countryside. Along the way, you will discover the traditional farming practices that characterise this area, and some of the best evidence of our colonial heritage. The ride rejoins the main highway in the picturesque rural township of Westbury. The outbound option is simply a reversal of the ride, but may be more convenient for those who wish to end up in Launceston. Distance: 56km
