Crossing from New South Wales into Queensland gained an hour due to time difference between the two states and riding direction Tamborine Mountain to cruise the long way into Brisbane (QLD): http://www.visitbrisbane.com.au
A must stopover for pies is The Outpost Cafe: http://www.theoutpostcafe.com.au located in the Gold Coast Hinterland. The cafe is a very popular hangout for bikers during the weekends.
Lunch break at The Outpost Cafe to enjoy a tasty bacon - cheese - sausage roll and Bundaberg Lemon, Lime + Bitters and off again carding through the mountains

The Breakfast Creek Hotel Brisbane is arguably the most famous watering hole in Queensland and one of the most iconic in Australia.
It's more than just a venue – it's a major destination in Brisbane, popular with local, interstate and international visitors, one of the best loved in the city.

Overnight stop out at Cobar (NSW), an Outback town in central western New South Wales, Australia.
Historic Cobar has a rich copper- and gold-mining tradition and the town is approx. 712 km northwest of the NSW state capital, Sydney.
It is at the crossroads of the Kidman Way and Barrier Highway.
Enjoying the sunset at Fort Bourke Hill, 300 metres above sea level, great spot to view Cobar and surrounds.
From the viewing platform, you can see into the open-cut mine.

Arrived at Broken Hill (NSW) http://www.brokenhillaustralia.com.au an isolated mining city in the far west of outback New South Wales, Australia located near the border with South Australia on the crossing of the Barrier Highway (national route 32) and the Silver City Highway (national route 79), in the Barrier Range. It is 315 m (1,033 ft) above sea level, with a hot desert climate, an average rainfall of 235 mm (9 in) and summer temperatures that reach well over 40 °C (104 °F). The closest major city is Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, which is more than 500 km (311 mi) to the southwest. Unlike the rest of New South Wales, Broken Hill (and the surrounding region) observes Australian Central Standard Time (UTC+9:30) a time zone it shares with South Australia and the Northern Territory. Broken Hill has been referred to as "The Silver City", the "Oasis of the West", and the "Capital of the Outback". Although over 1,100 km (684 mi) west of Sydney and surrounded by semi-desert, the town has prominent park and garden displays and offers a number of attractions such as the Living Desert Sculptures....

Straight to Bells Milk-Bar http://bellsmilkbar.com.au for two ice cold milkshakes after the Outback run...

Well ~ talking about milk-bars and icecream shakes, another historic site in Broken Hill remembering the The Battle of Broken Hill otherwise known as the Broken Hill Massacre, was a fatal incident which took place near Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia on 1 January 1915.
Two men shot dead four people and wounded seven more, before being killed by police and military officers. While the attack was politically and religiously inspired, as declared by the perpetrators in notes, the men were not members of any sanctioned armed force and the attacks were criminal.
The two men were later identified as being Moslems from the British colony of India, modern day Pakistan (some sources incorrectly identify them as Turkish).
The attackers were both former camel-drivers working at Broken Hill. They were Badsha Mahommed Gool (born c. 1874), an ice-cream vendor, and Mullah Abdullah (born c. 1854, a local imam and halal butcher. Gool's ice-cream cart was well known in town and was used to transport the men to the attack site.They also fashioned a home-made Ottoman flag which they flew. There appears to have been little effort made at hiding their identities.
