Turkey to Australia

Ladies and Gents,

I am looking at at trip in 2014 from Turkey to Australia. The plan is to ship my (or our bikes depending if my collegues get on board) to Turkey in April either Izmir or Istanbul. From there attend the dawn service at Gallipoli (I had initially planned this for the 100th anniversary but I believe there will be a ballot type system to get there for that).

After that the plan is to follow the silk route trough Turkey, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan,Kyrgyzstan,Kazakhstan,China, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Timor Leste.

This project is in it's very very early stages.

I have research as to which countries require carnets and also shipping my bike to Turkey and the boat from either Singapore or Dili squared away.

So apart from that I would appreciate anybody's knowledge in relation to this trip. I have done some initial searching on the net but there is alot of conflicting information as to permits, international driving licences, riding in China and crossing borders.

Any info would be greatly received.
