Itinerary

Day 1:

100 km (62 mi)

We will begin by handing over the motorcycles and giving a detailed introduction. We will do our first roundtrip through the gold fields, which will give you the opportunity to get accustomed to the bike and to driving on the left side of the road. The gold fields once had the richest gold deposits in Australia. We will have dinner together in Castlemaine.

Day 2:
300 km (186 mi)

The first section of the tour leads us from Castlemaine to Bendigo, which will be our first stop. We will have the opportunity to visit an old gold mine or the Chinese museum. From here, our route takes us north to Echuca, most famous for its paddle steamers. Before continuing our trip, you can have lunch here, visit the historic port, or take a cruise on a paddle steamer. We will stay in Swan Hill.

Day 3:
230 km (143 mi)

From Swan Hill, we take small by-roads along the Murray River to Mildura, where we will stay overnight. You will have the opportunity to partake in a wine-tasting session and a sunset kayak trip on the river in the evening.

Day 4:
174 km (108 mi)

During the fourth day, we will head north and cross the border between Victoria and New South Wales. Our destination is the Mungo National Park. On our way into the park, we will get in contact with our first gravel road. But no worries, mate! All gravel roads we will take on this tour can be easily managed, even by the unexperienced driver. After having lunch and moving into our accommodation for the night, we will hit the road again to drive the 70 km loop road through the park, where indescribable landscapes await us.

Day 5:
340 km (211 mi)

The next stretch takes us through small remote towns to the edge of the outback, Broken Hill. With every kilometre towards Broken Hill, you will feel the changes in the landscape and the rough influence of the outback.

Day 6:
This will be our first day off. The mining city of Broken Hill and its surroundings have a lot to see and do, including a trip to Silverton, where Mad Max is still present. In the evening, you should not miss sunset at Sculpture Park / Living Desert. And besides all that, do not forget to refresh yourself in the pool and just relax!

Day 7:
310 km (193 mi)

We will say goodbye to the outback today and head south over the Silver City Highway into Victoria again. Our destination for today is Red Cliffs, adjacent to the Murray Sunset National Park and Hattah Kulkyne National Park.

Day 8:
390 km (242 mi)

With 390 km, this is going to be the longest daily stretch to master. The day will take us straight to Halls Gap within the boundaries of Gariwerd - Grampians National Park. On the way, the increasing occurence of curves prepares us for the next day. In the evening, you should use the opportunity of enjoying one of the unique sunsets.

Day 9:
This is your next day off and should be used to explore this magnificent national park. The park treats you not only with heaps of curves but also hiking and abseiling. There is such a unique abundance of flora and fauna and so many things to see and do that only one day is hardly enough to see it all. Our tour guides will give you individual advice to help you make the most of your day here.

Day 10:
240 km (149 mi)

The next 240 km take us over beautiful roads straight to the sea to Warrnambool. A visit of Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum should be on your schedule before winding down the evening at the pool of on the beach.

Day 11:
140 km (87 mi)

This day offers another highlight of the tour: the Great Ocean Road. From Warrnambool one breathtaking coastal landscape will follow the other. You should not miss out on a detour to Cape Otway Lighthouse. Cape Otway National Park offers the only opportunity to see the only cool-temperated rainforest in Victoria. For dinner, you can choose from one of the numerous cafés and restaurants in Apollo Bay, while the beach invites you to a late-night bath.

Day 12:
340 km (211 mi)

We will take some last curves on our way from Apollo bay back to Castlemaine. The stretch goes through ancient forests, which make the decision whether to drive the curves or just staring in awe nearly unbearable. We close the evening and the tour with a goodbye-dinner in Castlemaine.

Note: We reserve the right to make changes.
