Gravel Ride, NSW, Australia

Had a great weekend ride. Started in Beaudesert - met up with 4 blokes from BNE to guide them around some of the beautiful state forests and national parks around here and northern NSW. A 400 km loop with plenty of gravel, dirt, and 4WD tracks, rainforest, lakes, waterfalls, river crossings etc. Got cold camping out but both Sat & Sun were beautiful blue skies.

There were 2 Kwaka KLR650s, a Yamaha Tenere and a BMW 1150GS, and my VStrom 650.

Heading toward Queen Mary Falls



Teaching my Strom to swim


Campsite, Paddys Flat, Clarence River. Early morning, the mist still in the valley.
