G’day

Queen Mary Falls is one of those places I’ve always wanted to visit but for one reason or another, I never seemed to get there.

Carr’s Lookout

G’day

A while ago, The Pillion and I nicked off to the other side of the New South Wales – Queensland border for some R&R. We usually just head down the coastal route via Mt Tamborine or Springbrook.

This time, for something a bit different, we decided to head out via Boonah and Killarney.

Are We All Brain Dead?

G’day

I don’t mind a good doco or crime show from time to time, even a comedy is good for… um… a laugh.

A Trip Down Memory Lane.

G’day

Yep, you guessed it, The Pillion got bored and was reminiscing about the old days.

Motorcycle Touring… And Planning… And Such…

G’day.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were free motorcycle specific touring guides complete with maps and places of interest dedicated to each region in Australia?

There are of course several websites around that identify great riding roads, but these don’t seem to mention other attractions that may be of interest to motorcyclists visiting the area.

eBook: Ballina Base Motorcycle Touring Guide

G’day

Last week I presented an eBook about touring Tasmania on a motorcycle.

This week I thought I’d share another eBook, this time a little closer to where I live.
