The road from Bombala to Orbost is one of the best rides in the country in my opinion.
Sweeping grand high plains road, a little bit of gravel then 105km of non stop corners down to Orbost. Bombala is a destination in itself, great history and affordable pubs and of course the major bike show of the country held there every year.
To the ride itself, the short gravel section is very easy and then you have a mixture of road surface. If you have your suspension set compliant for ‘aussie roads’ not the race track then you should never be bothered. I have read sports bike riders saying it was bumpy but frankly that’s nonsense, set you bike suspension for touring.
Australian high country scenery is spectacular. A must ride road.

These ‘good road’ posts were published 2006-2008. At some point the original images and descriptions became out of date and I moved overseas. I archived them here to update when I ride Australia again. This collection is just my own personal riding records, not a definitive list.
