Cycling signage strategy for North Eastern Victoria

Tourism North East (TNE) has a clear and ambitious vision for Victoria’s High Country – “to own cycle tourism in Victoria” and position the area as Australia’s No.1 cycle tourism destination. The region already attracts over 100,000 cycle visitors a year from all cycling disciplines because of its outstanding and unique range of facilities, attractions, events and products related to cycling. These include formalised mountain bike trails, two of the longest rail trails in Victoria and challenging road cycling routes.

TNE commissioned Wayfound to develop the Ride High Country Regional Cycling Signage Strategy (the Strategy). The purpose of the Strategy project is to develop a consistent approach to cycle signage in the region. This will provide a unified experience that enhances the visitor experience and helps visitors to navigate smoothly, safely and easily around the region. The signs will also help to raise awareness of the cycling resources and facilities available throughout the region.

Wayfound made 3 trips to North Eastern Victoria. During this time we met with cycle tourism related stakeholders, conducted an on line survey and audited all cycling related infrastructure in the region including MTB Hubs, Rail Trails and Road Riding including 5 of the iconic 7 Peaks road climbs.

From this information Wayfound developed the Strategy and Signage Style Guide.
