On your bike! Discover the Goldfields Track
Staying at Alice Barker House means you are literally ON the Goldfields track!
The Leanganook Track is the closest ride from ABH, but check out the flash new website for the track and plan the best ride, walk, run (or even rock climb) while at ABH.
If you can’t get on your own bike, get on one from The Bike Vault in Castlemaine. They will deliver mountain bikes out to Alice Barker House: 2 days hire $75 including helmets.
There is also a guide to riding the track in the ABH info book.
