More back roads which you need to look at my map to work out if not a local. From the town of Federal T junction turn right if riding the Federal road otherwise ride straight on if you have come over Coolamon scenic drive, both are good routes. Lots of easy sweeping corners to enjoy in this district known as Eureka. You will come to a Junction – turn left onto Eureka road and shortly after come to the T junction of the Bangalow-Lismore road where you turn right to the village of Clunes.

I have removed the original post as it was too old, please see the map for location of this road.


  1. More hidden rides from a local:
    Hi there. I just thought I would lend my knowledge… After going through clunes toward lismore, ther is a left turn jus after the speed camera to Eltham. this road is only a few Ks but lovely downhill tight curves. At the end (there is a nice pub with a cafe), you can turn right and continue to bexhill (another short run but well surfaced with fast sweepers and loooong straights as well as NEVER any cops) where you rejoin bangalow rd, or left and head on to tintenbar and Lennox head/Ballina/Byron, this road is windy but lumpy. anyway, just thought i’d let you know about them.

  2. Hey James

    thanks for that, I think I may have been on part of those but not all and will be sure to check it out next time.

    The Repentance Creek – Dunoon Rd is open again now after the that long winded road works and was nice bit of riding in parts when I had a quick look at it – which is another road I shall post up soon I hope!

    Is Dunoon Rd sealed all the way? On Google StreetView it looks unsealsed along the twisty bit – but maybe it has been sealed since Google visited?

  4. Yes it is sealed now
