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.
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.
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.
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.
Well, it’s about 2-1/2 hours ride from me, but I consider it part of my backyard because I can easily do a return trip in a day.
I’ve been harping on about Tasmania quite a bit over the last 12 months or so, and rightly so too, it’s a great place to visit and explore.
Especially if you’re on a motorcycle.
I’ve mentioned previously that I really enjoy the ride up to, through and around the Mt. Tamborine area.
No mater which direction you come from, the ride is always enjoyable.
The other day while travelling between Sydney and Brisbane, The Pillion and I decided to take a detour off the Pacific Highway for a rest break.
I often harp on about how good the roads and destinations are around these parts.
History, people and the surrounding scenery come together to make most places special in their own way.
I’ve come good on a threat I made about three weeks ago.
I don’t normally make threats, but on this occasion I saw no other way to deal with the problem. A tune-up was required.
In last weeks post, Take The Long Way Home, I mentioned arguing with myself about why I don’t ride the scenic route home from work more often:
The days were too short during winter for this route (but there is a slightly shorter alternative I retorted, you’d be home before dark. Easy)
