Tour De Gracetown - 28 October 23
Welcome to the 2023 Tour de Gracetown which is our 19th year of operations and with that a sign of our expansion!
We are also pleased to inform you of two nominated charities for 2023 being:
- PCaHELP – returning charity
- Lung Foundation Australia – new charity
This year will see the return of three distances to choose from with a new Event Village at Howard Park Wines.
- 107 km Gran
- 85 km Medio
- 66 km Piccolo
The ride will commence at the Gracetown Hall and finish at Howard Park Wines with safety vehicles to escort you out of Gracetown and all the way towards Bussell Hwy turnoff. The route will take you towards the northern sector of the South West coast in the midst of the many established wineries and finishing at Juniper Estate, Margaret River.

Features for TDG 2023

We can also be proud of the fact that we are probably one of the original Western Australian based ride events that donate our proceeds to local charities and we continue to support two charities as our beneficiaries namely the Lung Foundation Australia and the Prostate Cancer Help Association Inc. To make it uniquely Australian – the entire event management team as well as associated companies working towards the success of TDG are also Australian and we ensure that our event contributes to the local infrastructure and the economy.
