Showcasing the beauty, diversity and excitement of East Gippsland, the Australian Adventure Festival is happening on 21st and 22nd October 2016. The aim of the festival is simply to bring together outdoor adventurers, and their friends and families, to celebrate the world of adventure in one ultimate festival. And we're lucky enough that it's right here in the naturally magic, untouched, adventure playground that is East Gippsland.
With so many strings to our "natural environment" bow, this event offers something for everyone - mountaing biking, trail running, paddling and adventure!
Choose from a range of different challenges. The 5km and 10km run/walk offers a taste of adventure and a chance to explore the walking trails around the coastal town of Lakes Entrance. Mountain bikers can choose between 20, 50 or 100km rides through the Colquhoun State Forest, with flowing single tracks, some up-hill challenges and quick downhill runs to get the blood pumping. Or for Trail Runners there's the Ultra (55km) or Half Marathon (21km) through the extraordinary Mitchell River National Park. If you can't decide there's also an Ultimate Adventure Challenge that includes all this and more! Little adventurers are not forgotten - with a mountain bike or adventure challenge available for 4 years and older.
As if that all didn't sound like reason enough to jump on and register, we've also teamed up with AAF organisers to put together our own little adventure package which includes 50% off entry into this year's Australian Adventure Festival on 21-23 October 2016. You can click here to find out more.
