Cycling

The Shire offers plenty of adventure for keen cyclists. The district is quite flat in many parts so it doesn’t require lung-busting efforts to get around, and offers families a fun way to see the sights and enjoy some exercise together.

Leeton has numerous bike paths along Palm and Acacia avenues, and another path will take you to the village of Yanco along Yanco Road.

Cycling between Leeton’s expansive parks offers a picturesque route with plenty of shade and comfortable settings for the whole family to enjoy during the day. Most of the parks have barbecue facilities and tables, large grass areas for fun activities, children’s play equipment and more.

Head out of town
If you’d like to cycle further afield, the Murrumbidgee Valley National Park offers exciting cycling adventures for all the family. You can go birdwatching in the Fivebough Wetlands, or travel along the river through forest red gums.

If you love watching birdlife, Turkey Flat trail offers a supreme hike or bike ride. Locals consider it a unique twitchers’ trail, offering opportunities to see countless woodland and wetland birds in their natural habitat.

The trail ends at Middle Beach, where you can cool off with a swim and enjoy a picnic. Visit the Leeton Visitors Information Centre for more information and tips from local staff.

If you don’t have your own bicycle, you can hire a bike from Eurell’s in Leeton at 34 Pine Avenue. Phone to book one on (02) 6953 2999.
