  • One hotel, one week, at Race Headquarters, sharing the elevator with the who’s who of cycling royalty. It is not unusual to share the lift with the stage winners.
  • Visit the famous winery regions of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, and Adelaide Hills.
  • View every stage of the men’s and women’s World Tour event, for the first time being held on consecutive days.

2024 Santos Tour Down Under Trip

Visit locations like Hahndorf, Stirling, Lobethal, McLaren Vale, and Barossa Valley. We guarantee a rich experience on and off the bike. Coffee shops, bakeries, cheese-makers, wine producers, micro-breweries and local produce – discover Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, and the wine growing regions of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale.

The week-long event brings the top World Tour professional cycling teams to race on the streets of Adelaide and regional South Australia each January. Adelaide has become a great place for this cycling event, and a great place to ride. A city large enough to have all of the facilities you could want. But it is also small enough for cyclists to take over the precinct for an entire week. Up for grabs are important UCI World Tour points and the Santos Tour Down Under Ochre Leader’s Jersey.

Bikestyle Tours has been an Official Travel Specialist for the Santos Tour Down Under since its inception. We draw on our experience and local knowledge to provide you with the best that Adelaide, South Australia, and the TDU race has to offer.

2023 TDU Approved Specialist

International Super Stars. Summer cycling. Staying at Race HQ.

Our base for the week-long festival will be the headquarters of the event – Hilton Adelaide. The Festival village is on your doorstep with evening entertainment, showcase events, and technology hubs. We are also located beside the famous Adelaide Central Markets. Each morning enjoy a full buffet breakfast, fuelling up for a ride along the routes made famous by the Tour Down Under. Each one of our rides conveniently takes us to watch the live racing of the Women’s and Men’s World Tour events.
