brisbane to port macquarie

HI ALL
Well ive got loads of time on my hands at the moment,all ive got to do is wait for some pannier racks to come and then i will be on my way for a few nights away,anyway as you can see by the title i will be going from brisbane,now do i just go down the freeway and have a look around as you go,and then go inland on the way back? problem with this is i dont like freeways more off road the better,but i will be on my own

what i need to know is whats worth having a look at, and can anyone recommend places to stay that the bike will be safe at night,i will not be camping for this trip,its a bit too warm at the mo ie B&B,hotel,motel etc


i hope a week away should be about right

any maps etc feel free to put up

by road, down lindsay highway, rathdowny, urbenville, woodenbong, to tabulum
bruxner to tenterfield
um, new england highway to glen innes, turn left, gwyder highway to grafton,
grafton go down nymboida rd, to ebor, then do the water fall way to coffs harbour.

i guess you can then back track via water fall way, and do the old kempsey road, long dirt road half way between coffs and armidale, that will take you to kempsey, then your almost in port maquarie, might as well do the oxley highway then too.

I'm similar to Storm Shadow, I'd go down the Mt Lindsay H/way to Woodenbong, then to tabulum, Drake then Rocky River Rd (Gravel) to Tenerfield. The Tenterfield Tavern has lock up garages with the rooms IIRC, if you choose T/field as an overnight stop.

You can take gravel roads from T/field to Glen Innes to the East and West of the New England h/way, but I don't want to be responsible for getting you lost so I'll suggest the h/way, but if you want gravel to G.I. you leave town on the Scrub road (South-East) or Mt Mckenzie Rd (South-West) both options involve a few turn offs and I cannot remmber the names of the roads off the top of my head.

G.I. to Grafton on the old Grafton Rd (mostly gravel). Grafton - Nymboyda - Ebor (bitumen), then down the Armidale-Kempsey Rd (gravel) to Belbrook then Kempsey - Port Macquarie.

When you are nearing kempsey turn off to South west rocks, check out the old 1800's prison at Laggers Point, a trip up to Bellbrook for a beer at the pub. right keep heading up the river turn left at the new England highway, check out the Wollomombi Falls, keeping going south turn onto the Oxley highway and finish at Port.

Mick - you don't want an S10 as they are too good and you will have nothing too complain about get a 1200 Explorer instead, test ride out at Wivenhoe dam by Team moto weekend after this. I am going out to ride one so I can see how much better my S10 is
Cheers Rick
