It also includes Australia‘s capital, the wonderfully well-planned city of Canberra, and a variety of small and interesting towns and cities. Mostly, however, our tour has us riding through some of Australia‘s most beautiful and interesting terrain on good roads that are remarkably free of traffic. We will be riding through farmlands, open terrain, mountains and forests, and we will experience a wide variety of scenes: beaches of breathtaking beauty, mountains that are truly imposing and the wide-open spaces for which Australia is renowned – and all of it on roads that are just fun to ride.
Leaving Sydney’s population of 4 million behind, we make our way to Melbourne, where we watch Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden at work on what is perhaps the most picturesque circuit of the Moto GP series. There is a good chance we will get to celebrate the world championship, since Phillip Island is the third to last race of a long season.
