Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) Adventure Academy expands its program of events in Australia for 2024.

After the success of its Adventure Academy ride series in 2023 – including a first-time event in New Zealand just before Christmas – Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) has announced an expanded program in Australia for 2024 with events planned for more states than ever before. The 2024 Adventure Academy ride series will cover the eastern seaboard with a return to venues in central and northern NSW, Victoria and Queensland. And for the first time, Western Australia clients will also be able to take part.

The DRE Adventure Academy is the riding course designed for Ducati adventure enthusiasts who want to learn all the secrets of on and off-road riding by fully experiencing the qualities of Ducati bikes – in particular, the new DesertX or the Multistrada range.

The Adventure Academy provides attendees the opportunity to unlock new skills and discover the secrets of the adventuring world: from the right body position, to learning the most effective riding techniques, to the correct loading of bags and the repair of a damaged tyre.

According to Ducati Product Expert and Adventure Academy Chief Instructor, Nick Selleck, “The DRE Adventure Academy is designed to give our most passionate Ducatisti the chance to learn and experience adventure riding in its most natural form, and it’s great to be able to expand our offering in 2024 by opening our unique DRE mixed-road classroom to WA-based Ducatisti as well.

“Ducati’s approach to the Adventure Academy series has always been about things being better experienced than explained. And while we do cover the technical aspects throughout the program, our guests are able to put these lessons to the test themselves to really lock-in that new-found knowledge,” Selleck went on to say.

The DRE Adventure Academy program runs for two days. The first day is dedicated to theoretical explanation and practice drills of technical exercises to gain the right confidence in off-road riding, while the second day includes a tour of public roads with both on-road and off-road sections in real world terrain.

Each location uses venues that offer access to suitable riding terrain to progress riders’ skills, while also offering a chance to sample each region’s local food and wine when the day is done.

The cost of the program is AUD $945 with lunch included both days and dinner at a local restaurant at the end of day one.
