This is a serious motorcycling adventure. Join us on this trip through Northwest Victoria, South Australia and to the centre of Australia in the Northern Territory. Ride magnificent roads and visit icons of the Australian Outback, Uluru, Kings Canyon and Alice Springs. On the way "up" we will travel through the north west Murray region and on the way home we will head south and travel back to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road, arguably the best motorcycling road in Australia.

Tour Itinerary

This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider Melbourne and begin your journey heading north into the sun. We are headed to Mildura on the Murray River to a meeting with a Paddle steamer. We head out of Melbourne the back way taking in the views of Kangaroo Ground before picking up the old Northern Highway passing through country towns such as Kilmore, Heathcote, Echuca, Swan Hill and eventually Mildura.
From Coober Pedy we are heading into the outback town of Yulara that was specifically built to cater for tourists coming to visit Uluru. Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) is the most famous tourist destination in Australia and is the largest monolith in the world. This is a day where the ride is about the destination rather than the journey to get there. Uluru features stunning Aboriginal rock - art sites that can be viewed on walks and tours around the base.
Today is a rest day and can be spent undertaking the walks or tours around Uluru itself. There are great photo opportunities at sun up and sun set.
Toady we leave Kings Canyon for Alice Springs. "Alice" as it is called by the locals is located on the Todd River in the centre of Australia but we will be lucky to see any water. However just north of the city is a permanent water hole which feeds the township. Attractions at Alice Springs include the Cultural Precinct, The Alice Springs Desert Park, the School of the Air and of course Lassiters Casino.
Today is a free day where you can take your time and visit any of the many attractions at Alice Springs. Attractions include the Old Telegraph Station which show us how the early settlers lived here. Alternatively, for those who are keen to ride, we can head out to the McDonnell Ranges to visit some of the many gorges and waterholes dotted through this unique Australian landscape.
After another night in Coober Pedy we will continue our journey south heading fop Port Augusta often referred to as the ‘Crossroads of Australia’. Visit the Wadlata Outback Centre‚ which explains the Flinders Ranges area from evolution over fifteen million years ago‚ through to the present day via 3D exhibits‚ sound‚ pictures and video.
From Port Augusta we will continue our journey south but this time we will be heading for the picturesque Clare Valley where we will stay the night at Clare. A charming and historic town‚ Clare lies at the northern end of the beautiful Clare Valley‚ renowned as one of South Australia's premium wine-producing areas. Appealing galleries‚ restaurants and museums housed in colonial buildings can be found scattered throughout Clare and the Clare Valley. Visit the beautiful Wolta Wolta Homestead‚ or perhaps the National Trust Museum‚ located in the old police station. At Mintaro‚ the stately Georgian mansion Martindale Hall is recognisable as the school in the film Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Continuing south today we are heading to Bordertown on the border of South Australia and Victoria. Our route will take us through both the Clare and Barossa Valleys. These valleys are world famous for their wine production but they also offer spectacular motorcycling roads.
This is our second day out from the end of our journey. Today we head to Ballarat and the Sovereign Hill Tourism Village where we will spend the afternoon at the historic village and stay the night.
After a late breakfast and a final look around Sovereign Hill we leave and head back to EagleRider Melbourne located at Mitcham.
