Including Northern NSW
In my many years of riding in South East QLD I came to best like the area on either side of the border with NSW. I have grouped the rides here under the title of Gold Coast as everyone knows that area but more correct geographically would be to say the border ranges area.
The best riding is really just over the border. The area from there south to Byron bay and inland to Kyogle is full of enjoyable riding roads. Low traffic, interesting vistas that vary from the ocean to mountains, rainforests to Tuscan like rolling hills with row upon row of macadamia trees and even world heritage listed areas. There is some great cafes and pubs who are biker friendly and you will find yourself in a peaceful area away from the motorcycle rider police harassment that now exists in QLD.
Please note many of these posts are old. They might have smaller photos as was the style before when internet speeds did not allow media rich content. Also the writing style and word count might be poor as was the case for my early posts. However the where to ride information is still accurate, and I have tried to update a good number of the articles. added some updates to some posts. I was not thinking anyone was still interested but recently found this section is still being referred to by new or returning riders.
Update 2017 – when Google moved from Picasa photo albums to Google photos it broke some photo links for Blogger users thus some older photos when clicked on will no longer display a larger version. I’m working on it but with 6000 photos on this blog it’s going to take awhile to find and repair everything however I have at last fixed the icons below to be linked to the articles.
