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.


On my old blog I use to post about nice roads I was riding. This was before Google maps or the top 100 road atlas when little info was published about where to ride. I have archived these pages here just for nostalgia, most of the old content has been deleted but you might find a few 90’s era motorcycle images. There is a map now showing all the road locations, expand that for further info. If I have opportunity to tour Australia again then I may revisit all these places and improve this section, if not then there are plenty other people publishing about where to ride now…


  1. Looking forward to hearing about the ride when it happens. Two-wheeled rides rock!

  2. Hey Chef,
    You'll love this! (The Bonang Road) Rode it last December, over a 100ks of twisties, just magic! Best road I've ridden so far
