How it started

During a casual walk and ride in 2006, a community minded group saw the possibilities of an event that could link even closer the twin villages Tarwin Lower and Venus Bay in South Gippsland Victoria, and bring together the local and holidaying communities in a friendly non competitive way. That idea became a reality with this fun and healthy annual family event held on Easter Saturday over the past nine years, and growing exponentially from a participation rate of 270 in 2007 to over 1400 in 2016.                                               

Over more recent years the event has grown beyond the borders of the now traditional 6km Tour De Tarwin family walk and bike ride to encompass a series of fun and healthy family activities that are dotted across the Easter holiday weekend calendar. Find out more…
