Sorry but I have decided to retire the old list. The Google map below shows everything for the region. This sort of thing was not available when I first compiled a list of good roads for a Sunday ride so I had separate articles with small maps from various sources and instructions how to get to places which are all obsolete now. (expand map to see legend)

You can still view all the ‘good local roads’ in the section of the menu called The Vault – they have new photos and have been edited.  

I leave this page here as is for now as a landing pad from external links while I update the rest of the site.

    Hi we have just moved down to the gold coast from Mackay . We are looking for any groups that do regular rides at least every 2 weeks. Or give a few suggestions off good places to go for a ride thanks

  3. Hi Chris and Chrissy, you are going to love riding all the roads of the gold coast hinterland and over the border, it is the best riding in the country.

    There is an excellent riding club called Motorcycle Enthusiasts Club Gold Coast, look on Facebook.

    • Hi Rob,

      There are heaps of good roads in the area.

      If you look in the section of the blog called The Vault there you will find posts titled Good Local Roads, these are all nice roads in the area around the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

      Also use my map of best roads, open it full screen to see the name of the roads in side panel. A few I recommend would be Beechmont mountain road up to Binna Burra, Nerang-Murwillumbah road, Kyogle road (from Murwillumbah) that set can be linked and would show you some nice sights and riding then Tomewin road can be used to finish (or start) the ride depending on where you rent from.
