2016 – Our 10th Tour was our best yet …but 2017 will be BETTER !

Just a short note to thank all those who took part in this years nineth Venus Bay Tour De Tarwin, it was a wonderful day, suitably blessed with beautiful weather after a little rain in the morning .

In 2016 about 1,400 people took part in the event with many, many more choosing to view the walk and bike ride from the sidelines.

Big crowds at the 2013 Tour start line!

Local businesses certainly got behind Tour organisers both in terms of financial support and visible ‘on the ground’ support over the whole Easter holiday weekend. Thanks so much to these sponsors and partners. The Tour would not happen without you.

Importantly the day itself was a fun filled day with incredible participation from families and individuals alike . You could see everyone was having a great time!

From a local Tarwin CFA fundraising perspective, the day also set a new record with Tour organisers donating $17,500 to the local brigade and related emergency services!

So thanks to all our Tour volunteers, Tarwin CFA members, Venus Bay Surf Life Savings Club members and CERT members. Your assistance and help over the course of the Easter weekend was really appreciated.


Thanks again everyone. We hope to see you all in 2017 for our 11th Venus Bay Tour De Tarwin.

Cheers to all…
