Base yourself in Porepunkah to tackle this rewarding loop, which offers 360-degree views from the top of Mt Porepunkah, sprawling vineyards, and climbing and descending thrills.

The Mt Porepunkah loop delivers both challenge and reward to seasoned riders. Take on a demanding 1000m climb (followed by an equally exciting descent), panoramic views of Mt Buffalo, pristine bushland and chances to stop at cafes and wineries in Bright and Porepunkah. Able to be tackled in either direction, the route is best ridden clockwise for a slightly easier climb. Warm up the legs on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail before taking on farm roads and fire trails. Kickstart your ride in Porepunkah with a coffee at Punkah Pantry or the Rail Trail Cafe.
