I wasn’t sure if it was worth posting plans for my upcoming road trip. Most of the roads I’m travelling on have already had write ups by other riders who have travelled them recently. But I may be able to add a few insights and at least clear up the debate about the state of Thunderbolts way. I’m aiming to get to Jenolan. Im camping where possible and staying in hotels as a last resort. I have an idea what I’m doing for the trip, but there are still a few areas that I haven’t sorted yet. Basic plan so far is: Day 1 Dec 31st Ipswich to Bald rock NP, via Goondiwindi. Day 2 Bald Rock NP to grafton via Gwydir HW, then taking Waterfall way to Clouds Creek, Armidale and finally ending up at Tamworth where I plan to stay at a mates place for two nights. Day 4 From Tamworth im back tracking to Bendemeer and heading to Walcha (avoiding the fuel there) to head down Thunderbolts way. From there to Cessnock and then Wollombi. From here I haven’t decided if I want to go south and then take the Old Pacific Highway or head west and go via Bylong Highway. Depending on where I find a place to stay will depend which way I go. Suggestions would be most welcome. Everything going well ill end up in Jenolan on Friday arvo, where ill stay for a few nights before heading back on Monday. I’ve three days to get back home before I start work again. Keeping it relaxed so I can sightsee on the way home. Ill be taking either Bylong highway or Old Pacific highway on the way back, again depends on where I can find accommodation/camping. Then back to Glouchester and onto Nabiac. Depending on time going via Kempsey, Willawarrin and Macksville and then onto the eastern section of waterfall way via Dorrigo. Then back up to Grafton and the Sumerland way to Casino. From here it back home via Bonalbo and the Mt Lindsay Highway. I may change this as I’ve read Lions way is a bit messed up at the moment. That’s it in a nutshell. Work has been incredibly busy lately so haven’t been for a decent ride in months. Can't wait for this trip.
