Sydney
There's so much to see and do in this fantastic city that words can't even begin to describe the place, that won't stop us trying of course! There's the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Manly, Circular Quay and that merely scratches the surface of what Sydney has to offer. One of the finest cities in the world and the perfect place to begin this round trip motorcycle tour.

Blue Mountains
Named after the coloured tint the mountains take on when viewed from a distance, the Blue Mountains is a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site and a motorcycle rider approved top quality area of Australia. Astounding scenery dominates the region at every turn with thundering waterfalls, the second largest canyon on earth, nerve jangling cable car rides, the steepest funicular railway in the world and some lovely walking tracks.

Check out the Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls and a plethora of other scenic lookouts, before riding a circular route back around the mountains.

Hunter Valley
The Hunter region, more commonly known as the Hunter Valley, is the grape crushing heart of Australia's wine production. Ride along sweeping minor roads, past the viewpoints, fast flowing rivers and gorges of the Wollemi National Park [Australia's second largest] to the vineyards, top class restaurants and wineries of the Hunter Valley proper. The overnight accommodation for this part of the tour is a brief taxi ride from some of the most famous restaurants and wineries in the region, so there's plenty of opportunities to sample the local produce. Arrive early and go on a wine tasting tour or savour the culture in a relaxed evening out amongst the vines!

New England
Another incredibly scenic and winding back road takes you through New England to the settlement of Armidale. Famed for its deciduous trees in Autumn, it's an unusually seasonal area of Australia due to its elevation and actually experiences four distinct seasons, unlike most of Australia. If you time your visit right, the display offered up as the leaves on the trees switch to their more Autumnal hues is a sight worthy of retelling by the greatest poets. A good range of restaurants and a country town atmosphere mean Armidale is a pleasant town to spend the evening in, before riding on to the Waterfall Way the following day.

Waterfall Way
State Highway 78 or the far more attractively titled ' Waterfall Way', is a simply breathtaking biking road through dense rainforest, past countless waterfalls and boasts some epic views over the New England National Park. It's quite rightly regarded as one of the finest roads for motorcycling in the state. The route leads down to the base of the Great Dividing Range where you'll stay for the night.

It's not a long day on the bike this one but there's so much to see on the way it'll take all the time you're willing to give it! If you arrive earlier than expected there's the additional draw of the 'Promised Land' circuit to ride, which takes you along a beautiful single track country lane past some pristine crystal clear streams. Just the ticket for a refreshing swim on a hot afternoon!

Byron Bay
Spectacular back roads winding through northern New South Wales will eventually lead you to the most easterly point of Australia, Cape Byron at Byron Bay. There are even more beautiful beaches here augmented by a lively, friendly and incredibly welcoming small town with some great riding in the surrounding countryside.

Once a centre for 'alternative lifestylers', Byron Bay has clung on to that unique atmosphere and generally chilled out approach to life. You can relax on the beach, visit the famous lighthouse, enjoy the goings on in town and get a good meal at any of the great restaurants.

New South Wales Northern Coast
From Byron Bay your return route to Sydney traces the line of spectacular beaches on the Pacific Coast, calling in at relaxed little towns including Coffs Harbour, which possesses the most 'liveable climate in Australia' and some of the finest beaches on the east coast, all set against an imposing mountainous backdrop.

The coastal city of Port Macquarie, quaint holiday resorts, coastal scenery and incredible climate make this the perfect chance to relax, wind down and anticipate your arrival back in Sydney.

If you fancy taking advantage of some of what Sydney has to offer when you arrive back, why not let us organise a few extra nights accommodation for you at a superb city centre hotel? Just ask!

BMW R1200GSNote regarding accommodation:
Whilst this is a perfect tour for a long weekend it is important to remember that accommodation, especially in the Hunter Valley, can be difficult to find, particularly at short notice. Minimum numbers of nights usually apply and prices tend to be higher.

Of course the perfect solution would be to just keep riding all day and all night and we wouldn't blame you as the roads around here are fantastic! But you'll probably be so tuckered out after such an experience packed day in the saddle, that you'll be wanting somewhere nice to lay your head for the night!

Best bet is to check with us first, if you think you're schedule will include a Saturday in the Hunter Valley region, that way we can advise you of the costs involved.
