Einasleigh Weekend Ride - North Queensland Australia
A pictorial rather than a full blown ride report.
The plan was for the ADV riders from Cairns, Townsville and the Bowen Basin coal fields to meet up for a weekend. Location for this trip was the Einasleigh Hotel, west of Innisfail and the great dividing range between The Lynd and Mt Surprise. The photos cover the trip from Townsville. All up we covered about 1,100km over the weekend (500 there/600 back), mostly dirt.
A taste of North Queensland adventure riding, enjoy
Left Townsville for a chilly ride north on the Bruce Highway then up the range to Paluma/Hidden Valley/Mt Fox (was chilly for north queenslanders anyway, got down to 15 degrees C).
A quick break between Hidden Valley and Mt Fox
It does rain a bit up here in the wet!
Waiting for the Cairns mob at the Valley of the Lagoons/Mt Garnet turnoff
The Valley of the Lagoons
The head waters of the Burdekin River
After 500km our home for the night and........refreshments!
The next group of photos were taken from the paddock opposite the pub.
On the way out on Sunday. We went home via The Lynd, Hughenden Road turning south east via Gregory Springs, Cargoon. Lolworth and on to the tar about 20km west of Charters Towers, Then tar the last 120km to Townsville
And then it was home until next time.
