October 21 – November 4, 2017
Join us on a ‘virtual’ adventure as we explore some of the greatest motorcycling highlights (and lesser-known highlights) of Australia and beautiful Tasmania. During our Australia and Tasmania – Adventure Down Under Tour we will take off from Melbourne and visit the 12 Apostles found along the famous Great Ocean Road before heading back to Melbourne to jump on the ‘Spirit of Tasmania Ferry’. During our time in Tasmania we will post pictures and updates of this beautiful part of the world.
Heading back to Mainland Australia we will ride through the Snowy Mountains before heading down to the coast to ride along the beautiful East Coast of Australia. After a few days of riding the coastline and enjoying the ocean views we will head in to the Blue Mountains for a couple of days before making our way to our final destination, Sydney!
We hope that you enjoy the coming posts and photographs and look forward to having you ride along with us. Please feel free to leave comments on each of the posts.
