The Jayco Herald Sun Tour will once again hit the peaks and valleys of Murrindindi Shire in the first weekend of February 2018. See Australia’s best take on the world’s best as this iconic road cycling event races through the region. 

Stage 3 of the Tour kicks off in Nagambie on Saturday 3 February racing across Murrindindi Shire, culminating with a 20km hill climb before a sprint finish to Lake Mountain Alpine Resort. There will be plenty of great viewing opportunities along the course route – further details will be available in the coming weeks and updated on our website.  

On Sunday February 4 the Kinglake Ranges will come alive as thousands of spectators descend on Kinglake to cheer home the winners in the final stage of the event as the world looks on via the live international broadcast. 

The Tour Village area in Kinglake will feature market stalls, mobile catering, entertainment and community activities. Vendor opportunities are available for businesses and community groups and we are also keen to hear from groups or individuals interested in providing entertainment or other activities.

To ensure the safety of riders and the community, temporary changes to traffic conditions and vehicle access in certain areas of the Kinglake Ranges will be put in place on Sunday February 4. Council will be working with the event organisers GTR Events, VicRoads and Victoria Police to ensure the control of traffic for this event is conducted in a safe manner. Exact times and details will be available in the coming weeks and will be updated on our website.
