Loop the Mitchell River 

This easy, family friendly bike ride will loop you along the Mitchell River. Featuring a number of spots to stop and unpack a picnic, beautiful Willow trees and boards of information along the track, this cycling loop is always a favourite. You will cross three bridges, including a narrow swing bridge and enjoy a mix of groomed gravel and concrete sections. Take a short detour into the town centre of Bairnsdale where you can find yourself sipping a latte from one of the many popular cafes
