Question Sugestions for nor tar routes Sydney to PI for World Supers in March

Anyone have some suggestions for some "fun" non tar sections that can be incorporated into a 3 day ride down to the Island from Sydney in March for the Supers. Please feel free to be a detailed as possible. Cheers. Anyone else headed down?

Having just pretty much done this ride on a 950 I believe the answer is yes

Day 1,
Sydney -> Nowra (Tar, booring)
Nowra -> Braidwood via Nerriga (dirt, can be a challenge in the wet)
Braidwood -> Bateman's Bay (Tar but twisty fun)
Bateman's bay -> Moruya (Tar, Booring but can recommend the Adelaide hotel)

All up about 360km

Day 2
Moruya -> Araluen (Dirt back road)
Araluen -> Major's Creek (Steep dirt back road)
Major's Creek -> Captain's Flat (fast dirt)
Captain's Flat -> Jindabyne (fast dirt)
Jindabyne -> Orbost via the Barry Way and McKillop's Bridge (steep dirt followed by 65km of twisty tar - heaven on a stick!)

All up about 550km

Day 3
Orbost -> Buchan (twisty tar)
Buchan -> Omeo via Timbarra (you don't go in to Timbarra though - fast dirt logging road)
Omeo -> Bruthen (twisty tar)
Bruthen -> 'The Island' (booring tar)

Probably about 450km or so (didn't go to the island).

sounds allright to me for a transit run. There are lots of side-trips you can do if you're keen - just check the signs and maps. The most interesting things usually say something like "4wd track, Dry weather only" :P

better qualify your question with how long you have to get there.

i'd recommend syd-wollongong-albion park-jamberoo-kiama-nowra-araluen-braidwood-numerella-cooma-jindy-barry way then follow something like the barry sheene ride route.

not enough dirt, not too much boring tar tho.

Sydney - Nowra - Nerriga Rd - not much dirt now - Braidwood - thru to Numerrella (cooma) but take Nimatabell turn before you get to Numerella- at nimatabell turn right and dirt towards Dalgety - at the tar turn left and head to Bomballa - Bomballa to Delegate then the dirt down to Buchan - can be an easy 2 day or a full 1 day - most dirt on a direct line to PI that I know of - D

elegate Pubs a great stop if you plan on making it a 2 day ride - Graeme the owners a good bloke

Delegate publican might be a good bloke but watch out for the garage owner, he gave me a right bollocking after I took some photos of his establishment.

sounds a good route. tho i do like the barry way... dalgetty to bombala to delegate sounds a roundabout way doesn't it?
