Ha ha ha, wasn't meant to be a pissing contest, but a legit question.
Maybe it should have been a poll.

I was on another forum recently and a yank was saying he plans to move to Oz. has a choice of Melb or Shytney, my vote/arguement was for Melb, as much of the good riding/4wding stuff nearer to Sydney is being progressively locked up.
We are fortunate in the southern state that we have a huge amount of terrain in the east of the state that offers great riding all year round.

Either way, sometimes your best riding is closer than you think.

Btw, I still reckon Vic wins.

And motul is a good oil.

this should of been a poll.
7313km around Tassie, shit you must have covered ever inch of unsealed road.
I'd have to vote for northern NSW, but in reality it what you make of it, I also enjoy riding around the Roma area

Did a lot but missed out on west to Strathgordon and south past Huonville. Its really a big place if you wanna see it all. Awsome dirt on both the west and east coast.

Pity Phil, there's some excellent roads down that way

Spent quite memorable times down there

View from where I rented with three mates, overlooking Franklin in Huon Valley

Just glad no one mentioned SE Qld... we are already over run with to many Prictorians, Cockroaches (New South Welshmen) and Kiwis as it is, blocking our trails with their bent and busted bikes

Worse than the busted bikes are the mexicans, coackroaches & K1s coming here paying taxes, rates & GST so the State Govt could afford to seal many great adventure roads.
At least Anna sent us broke so the roads may revert to the natural condition before to much longer.

No dececnt ADV riding left in SE QLD avoid the place

I was once informed that the real reason Tasmania doesn't drift off into the Southern Ocean was because Victoria sucked.

Also, according to the Bureau of Statistics, in 2007 at least 50,000 Victorians moved to Queensland, and it increased the IQ levels in both states.

As for roads, NSW has to win at something, doesn't it? If nothing else in a day you can be in Victoria or Queensland. Problem is you go past so many good roads getting there it hardly seems worth it.
