GPS routes: adventure rides southeast queensland & northern nsw
i've been posting routes from our southeast queensland & northern nsw adventure rides on the TAT website for a while. thought i'd try to lay out the basic info and ride vids as well for easy referencing. you can visit the snail trail page here or just read on.
Brisbane to Cunninghams Gap loop, one day ride, 50/50 dirt & tar, 380km
150km longest stretch between fuel stops. Mostly very easy but a few unmaintained roads may be chewed up. Two of the gnarliest sections have bitumen detours shown. Great scenery! Go to TAT for the GPS file which is called "Brisbane Laidley Haldon Cunninghams Gap".
Brisbane to Barrington Tops NSW loop, 7 day adventure ride, 2300km, mostly dirt
Longest leg between fuel stops is 260km. About 80% dirt roads. Some tracks need a degree of ability, and may not suit larger bikes. Camping or pub accommodation. Epic ride! Go to TAT for the GPS file which is called "Brisbane Qld to Barrington Tops NSW loop".
Brisbane to Old Grafton Rd NSW loop, 3 day adventure ride, 952km, mostly dirt
Three days assumes experienced riders at a good pace. Camp or pub stays at Deepwater and Tabulam. Longest fuel stops about 240km from Deepwater to Jackadgery. Suggest ringing service stations at both towns for opening hours and fuel availability. Go to TAT for the GPS file which is called "Brisbane Qld to Barrington Tops NSW loop".
Brisbane Mt Mee Monsidale Imbil Conondale loop, 1 day adventure ride, 450km
Regular fuel stops so standard tanks should be fine. Mostly easy dirt roads but as noted on file some sections of the Bellthorpe and Jimna state forests are slippery when wet. Go to TAT for the GPS file which is called "Brisbane Mt Mee Monsidale Imbil Conondale loop".
Brisbane Stanthorpe Lindon - rabbit fence ride, 2 day adventure ride, 670km
Brisbane to Condamine Gorge then following the rabbit fence from Maryland to Durikai, about 65% dirt and 35% bitumen. Suit smaller adventure bikes, a long stretch north of Stanthorpe has constant jumps formed by erosion barriers. Detours for gnarly bits marked. Karara Hotel is basic but a good overnighter: 18509 Cunningham Highway and phone 07 4667 4187. Go to TAT for the GPS file which is called "Brisbane Stanthorpe Lindon - rabbit fence ride".
Brisbane Tenterfield loop, two day ride, 652km
Includes quite a few gnarly sections as it does as much dirt as possible. Only 150 km fuel range needed at most as there are plenty of fuel stop. Definitely experienced riders only on larger bikes, or moderate level of experience on mid-sized adventure bikes like DR650s etc. Big two day ride staying at Tenterfield, or very relaxed three day ride staying Tabulam and Stanthorpe. Go to TAT for the GPS file which is called "Brisbane Tenterfield loop".
we've put up a fair few more gps routes on TAT as well but that should do for starters. there are other ride videos too, just go to the youtube channel here.
Sure we trials riders have smaller knobs but we know how to use them - get into trials here
