We’re always chasing those moments. Moments when it feel like you could ride forever, when it feels like you’re part of nature, when the fresh air, stunning landscapes and a sense of achievement fill your senses. Moments when your family can all explore a new place together without stressing about traffic, red lights and when your next meeting is. You can find these moments, and so much more, when cycling in the Snowy Valleys.

The Snowy Valleys – Find out what’s in season.
Summer sees visitors of all ages head to Tumbarumba, to join the weekend-long festival that is Tumbafest. The quiet park, just behind the main street, fills with smiling people. Sprawled under shady trees are market stalls featuring fresh local produce, wines, ciders and craft beers. Some kick back in the shade to enjoy the bands and musicians, others are dancing until their feet hurt.
In autumn, each town celebrates its local show, with entrants competing in everything from floral arranging and photography to equestrian events and the stockman’s challenge, to baking, jam-making and vegetable growing. It’s a celebration of the best each town has to offer. Tumut hosts the family-friendly music festival Rock the Turf, the Falling Leaf Festival, and Tumut MTB’s 3 Hour Enduro. Adelong plays host to the Snowy Valleys Cycle Challenge, which sees cyclists ride 144km from Adelong via Batlow to Tumbarumba and back, and Batlow celebrates Batlow CiderFest, our region’s biggest tourism event.
