    this was just about the best riding road i found when in australia .
    you need to do it B to A as i have put it backwards as my spelling is crap.there is a small village [Canungra] before you go up a single track road with loads of cafe's full of bikes [you wont miss it]

    I'm terrified.We're in a jumbo 747, at an altitude of 30,000ft, going at 500 mph, and the drivers are asleep.

    I had a great week in Brisbane some years ago. Fantastic place and bush country nearby. It was where I first (and only time) rode a racing quad, deep in the bush. What an amazing experience.
    Prefer a bike though.
    I had planned to ride the east coast right from Sydney or even Melbourne up to Cape York, but I have given up on that as those coastal roads particularly in the southern  threequarters of the route are way too busy and policed for my liking.

    Ted.

    No need to hug the coast, plenty of great inland roads, Ted.

    personally i would skip most of the coast route from Sydney to Brisbane, especially Surfers Paradise [who let them build that blot on the landscape]
    further north is loads better [as are the people] totally loved Queensland.
    just finished a book by Geoff Hill & Colin O'Carroll---Around Australia on a Triumph [tigers].now waiting for the DVD to see what it looked like on a bike and not a 4x4.

    Cazzie, i hope the house is coming along fine
