Biking 2009


Back to Australia in April 2009. A roadside scene between Ashford and Inverell, NSW.
A pause in the Murray Valley, just after entering Victoria near Corryong.
On the Great Alpine Road near Mt Hotham, VIC.
With Brett and Dave on the Great Ocean Road between Lorne and Apollo Bay, VIC.
Minor roads in Victoria can present route-finding problems (as at this junction in Glenorchy). Time to get the map out ...
Another typical minor road in Victoria, near Kyneton.
My first visit to South Australia. A typical scene in Booleroo Centre.

The bike already has a new rear tyre!

Evening in the Flinders Ranges, SA, between Wilpena Pound and Hawker.
The end of the surfaced road at Lyndhurst, SA (population: 27). From here, one desert track continues to Oodnadatta, another to Innamincka.

You feel as if you are standing on the edge of the world.

On the return journey with only a couple of hours to go to Brisbane, just after crossing back into Queensland. A view of Mount Lindesay on the descent towards Rathdowney.

A second trip to Australia in July, to see the third State of Origin match in Brisbane. But there was time for biking too.

On a Saturday trip with Dave to the Bunya Mountains, at Fisher's Lookout.

The next day, Sunday, there was the annual Bike Concours under the Story Bridge in Brisbane.

After the Bike Concours I set off alone on a three-day trip through the Northern Rivers.

The Nimbin Rocks, a few km south of Nimbin NSW.

On the New South Wales coast at Boulder Beach, between Ballina and Byron Bay.
