Sydney - Batemans Bay - Canberra

Discussion in 'NSW' at netrider.net.au started by MotoTraveler, Aug 28, 2012.

  1. I am heading down to Canberra for the weekend to see a mate. Plan to leave Saturday morning to Batemans Bay and then to Canberra via Kings Hwy. Weather permitting.

    You are welcome to come along for the full or part of the leisurely run. I will be in no rush to get there and will enjoy the views as much as the windy roads.



    Here's the map - http://goo.gl/maps/MDSCP

  2. at about what time will you be getting to Wollongong?

    Can I suggest a slight variation for windy roads, go up Macquarie Pass and down Jamberoo Pass through Jamberoo and rejoin the Princes Highway at Kiama???

  10. It was awesome riding through the Mac pass and Kangaroo Valley. Thanks hornet for the company.

    The highlight was the Kings Hwy - about 100kms of high speed curves. Hardly any cars and surprisingly, saw only about 3 bikes. Not many of you go there?
