TRAVEL THROUGH THE MAGNIFICENT Roads From Taree to Nundle and Return. Fully Guided by Aussie Bike or hike Staff!
Great Divide Ride - 2 Day motorcycle adventure
You’ve done your compulsory training, and got your L’s or P’s, and it’s time to explore the big wide world by motorcycle.
There’s only one thing wrong……. You’ve got nobody who you trust to go with.
Sure, there are plenty of clubs and Facebook groups to ride with, but it’s just not the same as going with a fully qualified instructor who is also an experienced motorcycle tour guide. Plus, riding on dirt is a whole new experience for some.
The Great Divide Ride is a two day event that takes us on an adventure over Australia’s Great Dividing range, riding through the beautiful Barrington Tops, along open farm land, and incredible sub- tropical rain forest, and rolling plains.
Aimed at novice riders with little experience on the dirt, it is also suitable for the experienced rider who likes dirt road touring, with a little adventure thrown in.
We’ll overnight in the small town of Nundle. What Nundle lacks in size, it makes up for in personality. This small, historic mining village of 300 people is nestled between the Peel River and Great Dividing Range in the New England region of NSW and is sure to give us the rest we need after a big day on the bike.
Next day we’re off again for another great day of scenic lookouts, great dirt roads and light adventure along the way, as we make our way back to our start point at Taree.
What we provide:
A great ride on council maintained dirt roads. Dirt road touring at it’s best, suitable for any size adventure bike or trail bike.
The experience of experienced tour guides who are also qualified motorcycle instructors to assist and help you along the way.
A 4x4 support vehicle with trailer to carry your luggage, so you can ride unhindered AND is ready to assist if help is needed

Our aim is for the ride not to test you physically but to be enjoyable whilst still covering a decent distance. A lot of thought has gone into the route for our tours to make it as enjoyable as possible.
However if the riding distance is too far. Don't worry. we will have a back up van that can take you to the final destination.
