Woolshed Falls is a scenic 25m-high waterfall around 8km north of Beechworth. The falls cascade over smooth granite, and the surrounding rocky outcrops are a very popular place to sit and relax with a picnic.

On this ride package we equip you with one of our fun E-MTBs, a picnic hamper of locally-sourced food and drink packed into a handlebar bag, and a map of the route you'll take to the Falls. It's a wonderful way to cycle the local backroads and experience one of Beechworth's favourite sites.

The out-and-back ride takes in a section of the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail near Lake Sambell, the Chinese Gardens and the old railway station before heading down Malakoff Road and out into the farmland north of town. Read more about the ride here.

What's in the picnic?

Your picnic is one of the Old Beechworth Gaol Cafe's platters and is a delicious menu of locally-sourced food and drink perfect for snacking on as you watch the water cascade over the falls.

The contents of the hamper vary through the year, depending on what's in season:

  • Local cheeses (Milawa Cheese Company, Milawa)
  • Salami
  • Crusty bread
  • Artisan crackers
  • Strawberries, raspberries or boysenberries when in season (Beechworth Berries, Wooragee)
  • Cherries when in season (Highgrove Berry and Cherry Farm, Stanley)
  • Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds (Pepo Farms, Ovens)
  • Alpine apple juice (Nightingale Bros, Wandiligong) or a Billson's soda (Billson's Brewery, Beechworth)

What are the E-bikes like to ride?

You'll love them! They put a smile on your face as soon as you realise the boost of extra power that they give you. Read more about them here.
