Trans Australia Trails

Trans Australia Trails (or TAUT for short) is the place to come if you want to get out on your bike and travel this wide brown land of ours.

It doesn't matter if it's a 3 month odyssey round Australia, or a day trip from your home town.

Finding tracks

Simple as. Find tracks that meet your requirements by name, region, difficulty etc. You can display all the tracks you are interested in on the one map.

View the information saved with each track. Each track has a description, and is categorised by type, difficulty, etc, so you can see whether it is suitable for your skill, bike type, etc.

Once you have found the track(s) you want, click to download the GPX or KML files to your GPS, and off you go.

Sharing your tracks

If you have recorded any of your memorable trips on your GPS, put them up on TAUT for others to enjoy.

We can take track files from most GPS types, and you can annotate the trip when you upload it to tell potential riders everything they need to know about it.
