L’Étape AustraliaJindabyne, New South Wales, AU

Since its inception in 2016, L'Etape Australia by le Tour de France has provided a new level of riding experience in Australia, combining the beauty of the Snowy Mountains, the incredible enthusiasm of the locals and an event run to Tour de France professional standards.

In 2016 and 2017 L'Etape Australia was the largest Tour de France event held outside France.

L'Etape Australia provides amateur riders with an experience as close to riding in the Tour de France as it is possible to get with fully closed roads and a mountainous course that is the equal of a mountainous stage of the Tour de France.

The local Snowy Mountain community have embraced the Tour de France riding through their towns and villages; they come out in their thousands with cow bells and flags encouraging and supporting the riders along the route. The locals dress the entire area in yellow, green and polka dot; phenomenal bike artworks adorn the entire route.
