Australian Motorcycle Roads Archive

My old blog was about where to ride in Australia. Most of that content has been deleted however I kept my list of ‘best roads’ first published 2006 and refreshed images and added Google maps.

Australia’s best motorcycle roads. Clyde Mountain.

  There is a excellent bit of road from Batemans bay to Braidwood. Clyde mountain is very well surveyed and sealed. Then Braidwood is a town with a rich history and many sights. This road has had the ascent speed limit lowered and is popular with highway patrols I have […]

Australia’s best motorcycle roads. The Gillies.

Just south of Cairns the Gilles highway runs from Gordonvale to the Atherton Tableland. It has 258 corners in the main 19km section and is the premium ride in northern Queensland and indeed easy one of the best motorcycle roads in the state however it’s a long way for people […]

Australia’s best motorcycle roads. Gwydir h-way

This is one of those roads I always seem to skip. Not cause it isn’t good but because it is competing with  other routes. From Grafton I am always tempted to ride the Armidale road via Ebor, this is a superb ride and leads me to the Waterfall way or […]

Nice local roads – Lions Road

This road used to get a lot of press and overshadowed much better rides in the border ranges. It is scenic in parts but the nearby Mt Lindsey road is arguably a better ride overall. I actually know this road from when I was a lad with my parents. The creek […]

Sorry but I have decided to retire the old list. The Google map below shows everything for the region. This sort of thing was not available when I first compiled a list of good roads for a Sunday ride so I had separate articles with small maps from various sources […]

Nice local roads – Somerset Dam

Somerset Dam is a popular part of a northern loop north from Brisbane or a turnaround point for riders who have ridden Mt Glorious. There is petrol and small store near the dam, in the other direction riders go into Fernvale for fuel and the bakery. I had stopped riding […]

Nice local roads – Beechmont mountain

Beechmont once upon a time used to be poor surface and I rarely saw another bike up there but then it was upgraded and became one of the most popular rides on the south side. There are superb views over the Gold Coast and then also to the west. Green […]

Good motorcycle roads Gold Coast – Currumbin valley

I always used this road to ride south then Numinbah north as they flow better those directions but it is worth noting if you ride this from the south then before the M1 you can turn into Old Coach Road and Tullebudgera connection road and skip the highway to Reedy […]

Nice local roads – Stokers Siding

I used to ride the back roads via Stokers Siding to connect from Uki to Burringbah or to skip the Tweed valley way from Burringbah into Murwillumbah. From Uki you take Smiths creek road and from Stokers siding you take Stokers road which leads onto Bakers road and you can […]

Australias best motorcycle roads – Nymboida

The Grafton to Armidale road is one of the great rides in the New England tablelands region. Refereed to just as Nymboida on some bike forums, the rural village where actor Russell Crowe owns the pub is a interesting stop in route. Heading south you can obtain fuel at Courts […]

Nice local roads – Bald Knob

I used to like riding this road just for the view, the surface originally was a bit bumpy in parts however at some point is was resurfaced and if you have ridden up to Maleny then seems a obvious choice for different route on the way back. I have removed […]
