Ballarat to Mount Mercer

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
July 28, 2020 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A very nice rural road with some nice corners and scenery. Be wary of the locals that use it, they know the road and happily tear along at the posted speed limit of 100kmph. I reckon the road should have been designated 80, but this stretch avoided that, 100 is quite quick along this road.
Be wary of school pickup through Bunninong. There are hundreds of distracted mothers picking up kids, hundreds of aggravated tradies trying to get ahead of everyone, and buses everywhere. Once into Buninong the traffic is light.

Werribee - Baliang - Brisbane Ranges - Werribee

Victoria > Australia > Oceania

Leaving Werribee heading towards Balliang you cover some nice straight roads, over the bridge that was in Mad Max II, get some nice speed up, occasional kangaroos, no coppers, odd red necks in utes. Turn left towards lara, then quick right onto granite road, a very nice twisty road, great scenery with a touch of bush, then onto the Brisbane Ranges park for more nice roads, lotsa bends, occasional copper, mostly tourists. At Mt. Wallace hang a right, head into the bush. There is gravel road for around 3 kms, but the surface is good and without many holes, then some serious twisties, blind corners etc. At the end of that, head back towards Werribee via Ballan road, great view of Melbourne and back home. A ride with lots of variety of scenery and surface, so close to Werribee, so much to see. A+

Lismore - Nimbin

New South Wales > Australia > Oceania
September 25, 2016 - 1 star route rating Motorcycle Road1.0

Initially leaving Lismore the road seems fine, just normal hum drum scenery, lush sub tropical stuff, usual farms etc. Then, as you get closer to Nimbin, and if you are extremely lucky to be travelling during daylight hours, you will notice some weird spray painted drawings on the road, and before you ask yourself \"whats that for?\" you will hit the worst potholes and sunken sections of road you ever witnessed! This road section has to be the worst I have ever come across, sections of road sunken around 5 inches, massive potholes. A local bloke called Roa Dart took to painting the hazards because the council do nothing. These paintings are life savers... once you know why they are there! check the pics. Avoid the road if you like your bum or suspension.

Mount William

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
September 25, 2016 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This short ride is often overlooked by riders heading to either Dunkeld or Halls' Gap. A short detour up to the Mount Williiam carpark, (you have to walk to the top) offers some seriously tight twisties all the way to the top. The road surface is pretty good, the road is wide enough to avoid the tourists coming down the mountain. There is sheer rock wall on one side of the road, and sheer drop on the other, so be careful looking at the stunning scenery of ancient rock formations. Lots of places to stop and take pics or admire the view. Watch traffic on the weekends, watch for snow in the heart of winter. Absolute stunner of a road. A++

Dunkeld - Victoria Valley loop

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
September 25, 2016 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

leaving Dunkeld heading towards Hall's Gap, the road has mostly nice long sweeping corners. Great surface and expansive scenery. A really sweet part of the ride. On the weekends watch for tourists and the local police who patrol up and down the hall's gap road. At the turn off onto Victoria Valley everything changes... the scenery is wide open country, old farms, ancient fences, heaps of towering gum trees, and even Emu's in the paddocks. The road degrades a little, and gets a little skinny here and there, but you really do feel as though you are alone on the road. From there staraight back to Dunkeld, and other traffic. Great ride.
