So im planning a trip from QLD down to Victoria and the Great Ocean Road these Christmas/New Years holidays. Depending on weather i'll hopefully take the New England Highway and then Putty road to Lithgow where i plan to spend a few days hiking, caving and sighseeing. Then south to Tumbarumba via Oberon-Goulburn road. Can anyone tell me if this road is sealed? I was hoping to travel around the Yea and Black Spur areas, but reading other threads here it seemed like these areas are populated by police. Should the area be avoided or is the trip to black spure worth the hassle? From there i was hoping to go west via the great ocean road and end up at either Peterborough or Port Campbell, depending on how many stops i make on the way. Was planning to backtrack along the GOR to Wilson promontry via the sorrento ferry, unless anyone else has an alternate route i should consider while im in that area. From here i start to head north and hopefully following the route i planned for my ill fated trip at the start of 2011. This means riding up the Alpine H'way where i want to stop in the Omeo area and camp. Again any ideas about where to camp that can be reached via a boulevard M90 will be welcome. From here i want to stop by Bright and Mt Beauty again before heading to Khancoban and Jindabyne. Once again any suggestions for a place to camp would be welcomed. I read another thread that said this road is now sealed, but are there any ongoing road works or other issues that i might need to be aware of? Next is to ride back to Lithgow via Macquarie Pass and Lawrence Hargrave drive. From Lithgow i plan to get home via the Oxley Highway. (depending on weather) Any ideas about what to see during the trip will be very helpful. I just bought a GoPro so i can capture some of the more scenic parts along the way. I'm hoping to do a write up like i did with the last road trip. So there is my half planned holiday.
