The Great Ocean Road
Famous as one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world, words can't describe the wonderful scenery and amazing riding on this 280km stretch of road on the fringes of Melbourne, but we'll try anyway.

The Great Ocean Road

As soon as your wheels hit asphalt, you'll realise just how special the Great Ocean Road really is. The route twists and turns, hugging the picturesque cliffs as it winds a sinuous path along the coast. Curve after sweeping curve are seamlessly stitched together, almost purposely designed to give maximum enjoyment to any motorcycle riders that are lucky enough to be there.

There are plenty of small coastal towns to stop for a break and a coffee, serving up fantastic ocean lookouts along with the great refreshments. The lovely Otway Ranges provide a lush backdrop to the quaint towns when the road darts inland away from the coast. It takes longer than you might expect to ride along this gem of a road, there's simply so much to see.

The 12 Apostles

Take a walk in the temperate rainforest at Maits Rest, try and spot that iconic Aussie creature the Koala in the trees above, visit the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, the Grotto, London Bridge, The Arch the list goes on and on! Don't forget to watch the road as well as the spectacular views though!

Every motorcyclist should ride this road at least once in their life!

The Grampians National Park
The ancient hills of the Grampians National Park make for an awesome spectacle as you ride toward them. This area of granite highlands is jam packed with wildlife, superb lookouts and beautiful waterfalls. The visitor centre at Halls Gap can provide all the information you'll need for getting the best out of your time there and will give you a great overview of the area, ensuring you get to see everything you want during your visit.

By the time you've ridden the roads in the park, taken a short walk to the two main lookouts and perhaps trekked to the base of one of the thundering waterfalls, you'll need at least a half day to absorb what's on offer, but will probably long to spend more time lost in the atmosphere of the national park.

Larry the lobster

South Australian Coast
Sticking to the coast as you wind your way towards Adelaide provides plenty of fascinating little coastal towns to explore. Some a little more quirky than others! There's 'Larry' the giant lobster in Kingstown who's definitely not your average specimen, the sleepy coastal towns of Robe and Beachport and the somewhat larger settlement of Mount Gambier.

Home to the magnificent Blue Pool, a lake inside a [hopefully] long extinct volcano which not only provides all the drinking water for the town, but also offers some fantastic scenery to explore as a way of stretching your legs out of the saddle.

Meat pieAdelaide
Perched on the Fleurieu Peninsula, capital of Southern Australia, 'City of Churches' and the perfect blend of urban cool and natural splendour. Adelaide has one of the most impressive botanical gardens in the world, loads of relaxed open spaces and a vibrant atmosphere that makes it a pleasure to wander the streets.

A small town feel with lovely colonial architecture and all the conveniences of a modern city. The surfeit of cafes and restaurants mean it's the perfect spot to sample that most iconic of Aussie meals, the meat pie floater! That's a meat pie floating in pea soup for those that haven't had the pleasure as yet. A pie, a very traditionally Australian way of ending a great motorcycle tour!

Adelaide is such a relaxing place that it would be a shame not to stay a little while and indulge. If you fancy taking advantage of some of what Adelaide has to offer, why not let us organise a few extra nights accommodation after your tour at a centrally located city hotel? Just ask!
