Four days riding through the best that the region has to offer. From the stunning coastline to the hinterland and back again…
Our first day is a big one as it mimics our Big Day Out one-day tour for most of the first day, however rather than returning to Coffs in the afternoon, the tour continues north after lunch to Grafton. From Grafton we follow the Clarence River until we arrive at the immaculate historic Scottish town of Maclean where we spend the night. (Tip – Check out how the proud locals have decorated the main street).
After breakfast we take a short ride towards the coast to the isolated village of Angourie where we stop for our morning coffee and a short stroll on the beach. After coffee we check out the fishing port of Yamba before heading north to Ballina where we stop for lunch. After lunch we take the coast road through Skennars Head and Lennox Head before heading inland through Tintenbar, Alstonville, Clunes, and other quaint small towns before arriving at the lovely and somewhat alternative town of Bangalow. From Bangalow it is a leisurely ride to the Australian mainland’s easternmost point at the hip seaside town of Byron Bay. As we arrive in the mid-afternoon there is time for you to explore the region, and we suggest that you take a walk up to the light house for some spectacular views before returning to town for the evening. We spend the night in Byron Bay. (Tip – Keep an eye open for celebrities).
After breakfast we ride west back into the beautiful hinterland before stopping for our morning coffee at Bangalow. From Bangalow we ride west to Lismore and then to Casino for lunch. From Casino we take a motorcyclist’s favourite road, the Bruxner Highway, as it twists its way like a snake across this mountainous region of national parks, before we arrive at the regional town of Tenterfield where we spend the night at the gorgeous, historic Stannum House.
After breakfast we ride south along the New England Highway before stopping at Glen Innes for our morning coffee. From here we ride east up over the fabulous Gibraltar Range National Park and then down the twisties to Grafton for lunch. After lunch we ride south with the forest and the Orara River as our companions. At Nana Glen we head east through more winding roads as we enter a sub-tropical rainforest and climb to the top of the Ulidarra National Park for a spectacular view of the coast from the Forest Sky Pier. From here it is a leisurely ride down to the coast for a quick photo opportunity at the Big Banana before finishing our tour in Coffs.
The four-day tour is offered on alternate months throughout the year (except June).
The four-day tour is considered to appeal to riders who want to experience rider-roads.
All tours include the motorcycle, fuel and any maintenance required during the tour.
Morning coffee and lunch are inclulded.
We understand that it is usually preferable to bring your own helmet and riding gear. However, we also recognise that if you are travelling from interstate or overseas it may be difficult to travel with your helmet, and as such we maintain a small range of helmets for loan to customers (without charge). Please ensure that you have appropriate riding gear, which at the very least should include enclosed boots or shoes, long pants, a suitable jacket and gloves. Also note that the hinterland can get quite cool during our winter months.
If you are flying into Coffs we can arrange pickup from the airport (without charge).
Quality accommodation (no camping, cabins, backpacker lodges or the like). Each rider will have their own room with private facilities.
Breakfast, mid- morning coffee and lunch. (It is our experience that leaving the dinner arrangements at the rider’s discretion allows a greater level of freedom and flexibility).
