AussieVelo aims to promote bicycle touring in Australia through the development  and promotion of national and regional bicycle touring routes. 

These  routes are to be developed in conjunction with all levels of government  tourism departments, cycle touring clubs, and private businesses.

AussieVelo National cycle touring routes will provide inter-State connectivity, and  circumnavigate Australia (see map for the conceptual National cycle  touring network).

AussieVelo Regional cycle touring routes will provide intra-State connectivity, and from  National routes to major cycling visitor locations and activities.

Together, AussieVelo cycle touring routes will form a connected network, connecting capital cities with places of significance and of interest to touring cyclists.

AussieVelo web sites: (this site) provides support materials and information for organisations and supporters registered with AussieVelo. will provide information for touring cyclists including the AussieVelo routes, general touring and safety information, and links to further information.
