Organising for the 2024 OYB Tour is in full swing!

Our journey begins in Nadji Nadji Country in the southern wheatbelt at Corrigin.
As we ride to Kulin and then Lake Grace we will be riding along the ‘Tin Horse Highway’ with a heap of quirky and amusing sculptures made by the local farmers alongside the road.
At Pingrup and then Newdegate we will see the wonderful art works painted on large wheat silos. On the rest day at Newdegate we can visit the Holland Track and get to see and learn about regenerative farming and community supported agriculture.
After cycling on to Lake King we head south east into Wudjari Country in the south coast region.
Enjoy the ‘Farm Gate Art Trail’ alongside the road as we ride into Ravensthorpe and then again on the ride to Hopetoun. Don’t miss the art works painted on the large wheat silos in Ravensthorpe.
Finally we arrive at the sea at Hopetoun and can enjoy a swim in the beautiful Southern Ocean. An optional bus trip will take us into the UNESCO biodiversity hotspot of Fitzgerald River National Park at peak wildflower season.
On the return journey by coach from Hopetoun we will stop at Wave Rock for catered morning tea and a quick look at the rock. Then on to Corrigin for lunch.
