Content and Images by Wayne Mahoney The grand plan was to ride from home (Brisbane) to mums house (Hervery Bay) by as much off road as possible and catch the train back. Distance was approximately 375 km (about 233 miles) which takes a car about 4 hours to drive via the highway. I have ridden some sections before but wanted to explore new forest and national park areas that could be linked into one continuous trail. The weather in Queensland was not good in the lead up to my trip, we had a cyclone deposit a lot of rain over the entire area but the south east corner of Queensland has just come out of summer so temperatures should be about 25 – 30 degrees (77 -86 F) through the day. As you can see by the gear list below nothing fancy was required, I was aiming at three days on the tracks.
