Maitland to Batemans Bay
This is a big ride. 1240km long and approximately 18hrs of riding time, this is one you'll need 4 days to tackle. Taking you through the Hunter Valley, New South Wales’ famous wine region, Old Pacific Hwy, Macquarie Pass, Kangaroo Valley, The Kings Way, Goulburn to Oberon and the Bylong Valley Way. Road surfaces are good or better, with everything from tight hairpins to fast flowing, sweeping bends. You can also start this loop from anywhere along it.
Port Macquarie to Walcha
The Oxley Highway from Port Macquarie to Walcha has almost everything – from tight and twisty curves climbing the mountains to the higher-speed sweeping roads once you burst from the bush at the top of the range.
Heading back to Sydney from Walcha, this road features cambered bend after cambered bend. A short but sweet ride.
