Ride to the Warburton Redwood Forest along the historic O’Shannassy Aqueduct Trail on our scenic mountain bike tour.

Traversing 12 km of the O’Shannassy Aqueduct Trail this adventure will have you weaving through pristine Mountain Ash forests, mature fern gullies and bubbling creeks. The trail follows a now disused open-water aqueduct that once supplied Melbourne with all its water needs. It is a predominantly flat track with one short incline and a couple of fun rollers just before the turn off to the Warburton Redwood Forest. Following a slight downhill section you’ll arrive at your destination. Here you’ll disembark to forest-bath amongst the majestic Californian Redwood trees, some of which stand at 55m high, towering to the sky. Wander through the forest towards the river and explore the walking trails. Add your own twigs to the artistic nest installation and take that all-important selfie.

At the start of the tour your guide will run you through a safety briefing and kit you out with a helmet, gloves and mountain bike. At the end of the ride we’ll meet you at the Warburton Redwood Forest car park to load up the bikes and transfer you back to Warburton. Your guide will be on hand throughout the activity guiding and assisting you through the adventure.

If you can’t see the time and date that you’d like please give us a call and we’ll help you out.

Frequently asked questions.

  • What’s the difference between guided and self-guided adventures?

    In our guided adventures you’ll have the safety and assurance of a professional adventure guide with you every step of the way. All our guides are trained and accredited outdoor adventure specialists with current Working with Children Check and First Aid Training. On a self-guided adventure we’ll provide transfers and adventure equipment, but you’ll have the freedom to enjoy the activity at your own pace.

  • What happens if it starts raining while I’m out on tour?

    If it’s a little light drizzle then we’ll continue with the adventure as planned. However, if the weather turns quickly then we’ll make a judgement call based on how quickly the shower will pass, how strong the rain is, if there is lightning, thunder and strong winds. While some inclement weather is to be expected in nature based adventures, we take your comfort and safety in the outdoors very seriously.

  • Do you provide catering on tour?

    We currently provide a unique Silva Coffee Roasters tasting experience available on selected tours. Partnering with Oscars on the Yarra we are now providing a special picnic experience that can be enjoyed at the conclusion of your adventure tour in a lush tranquil setting by the Yarra River. You can choose from a selection of sandwiches, an antipasto platter or 3 cheese picnic boxes. Pair with a bottle of wine or champagne bought separately.

  • Are your adventures suitable for children?

    Yes, most of our adventure activities are suitable for children aged 6 and above. However, please check our age guide listed on our individual adventure products. If you’re unsure which activity is suitable for your child please contact us to discuss your options.

  • What happens if it is raining on the day of my tour booking?

    If it’s a little light drizzle we’ll continue with the adventure as planned. However, if it turns to torrential rain with high winds then we’ll work with you to reschedule your tour for another date. While some inclement weather is to be expected in nature based adventures, we take your comfort and safety in the outdoors very seriously.
