Any size Adventure bike is suitable for this trip.

As we embark on this extraordinary ride, our team is meticulously organized to enhance your experience. 

Picture this: a guide at the front, ensuring you stay on course; a mid-sweep rider, maintaining the group's cohesion; a rear sweep rider, ensuring no one is left behind;


A backup vehicle ready to carry all your clothes; and a trailer, standing by to transport your bike to the overnight stop in case of any mechanical troubles.


A qualified motorcycle mechanic to assist in getting you back on the road if possible after a break down.


No need to worry about the complexities of navigation, as " Big Merino - 2 Day Muster " operates on a "Corner Man" System.


No need to invest in expensive GPS units as required by most of the other adventure companies – we've got you covered, making navigation a breeze and enjoying the ride without breaking your wallet.


After a day of conquering thrilling terrain, we'll rest our weary heads in Cooma, which is known as Ngarigo Country. 

Cooma serves as a gateway to the Snowy Mountains, and it played a pivotal role in the construction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, one of the most significant engineering projects in Australia's history. These iconic landmarks serve as the perfect backdrop for unwinding, regaling tales of the day's adventure, and preparing for the excitement that awaits on day two.
