    John, have a chat to http://www.cafehusky.com/members/9880sts.14016/.
    I'm sure Helmut would love to take you out near Melbourne.

    If your trip heads up north to Queensland, Brisbane area, let me know & I'll take you to my favorite spots :thumbsup:

    Yup still coming from the 22 may till june 19, will double check dates but im sure they are locked down now.
    Will be awesome just not having to stress over work the house n fixing cars... Let alone bumming a ride from some freindly locals with the knowledge of the tracks.

    Conditions have been very good here like its ramping up to let us acclimatise easier.

    If you were able to make it up to the mid New South Wales north coast, we have a charity ride (May 30th & 31st) organised there with some brilliant riding up behind Coffs Harbour. :thumbsup:

    Should be a good drive :)
    Enjoy.
    I've done the Nullarbor crossing 3 times before.
    Love looking off the Great Australian Bight.
    The plains just end right there & fall into the sea!
    If you have enough time while heading to Perth, call in on Esperance.
    Magical blue sea and whiter than white silica sand.
    Beautiful.

    Esperance is a must see :oldman: arguable the best coastline in the south hemisphere.

    the following is based on visits 18 years ago.
    try to avoid Busselton in WA (more eyes then teeth in that town)
    try to avoid Dubbo in NSW (some really dogy suburbs in that town)
    try to avoid Sea spray in VIC (plain big time boring)

    besides that you have to less time

    You will certainly have your work cut out, that's a fair bit travel packed in.
    Great stuff.

    A lot of people imagine our island nation to be fairly small, but it's just the population that is small. 809267035_bPdes-M.jpg
