Tour of the Tropics

Sporting Events

2 Aug 2019 to 4 Aug 2019

Tour of the Tropics is the re-branded Tour of the Tablelands cycling event which has been in operation since 1997. Tour of the Tropics has come to life to incorporate not only a sporting event for cyclists, but a festival inspired food, wine and music event for not only sporting enthusiasts, but leisure travellers and families of all ages. The event is about immersing yourself in the tropics and experiencing the wonderful fresh produce grown in Far North Queensland through the many food and beverage pop up food stall offerings available at the event, while also witnessing the cascading World Heritage Rainforest, lush green fields where the produce is grown and the native flora and fauna present at each race destination throughout the three day event between Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands.

This event is unique as it starts in Cairns and then continues through to the Tablelands for the following two days taking in the picturesque scenery of both destinations and showcasing a diverse array of landscapes and signature tourist attractions.
