Hi all, New to this forum but was hoping someone(s) on here might be able to help with some advice. No doubt plenty of you have thought about riding all the way around Australia, and some of you have perhaps even done it. I am looking at doing it sometime next year (probably look at leaving Sydney in June/July), and was trying to work out just how long I would need. The plan (at this stage anyway) is to ride north from Sydney all the way up to Cape York, down to Mt Isa and Alice Springs, up to Darwin then right around the coast to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and back up to Sydney. I may even head over to Tassie if I can fit it in. My estimates put it somewhere between 20 and 25,000 k's depending on side trips and route taken. Has anyone done anything similar? How long would you need to do it comfortably? I don't want to rush around just to have done it, but would like to stop at most of the places in the country that I've always thought I should see, but haven't got around to. I was also thinking that leaving Sydney at the start of July would be a good timing-wise as it wouldn't be too hot up north, but again any feedback on this concept would be appreciated.
