Australia Day Long Weekend Ride

Australia Day is the official national day of Australia. Observed annually on 26 January, it marks the

anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet at Port Jackson in New South Wales. It is the day to

reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge

our history, our diversity and achievements. On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love

about Australia: land, sense of fair go, lifestyle, democracy, the freedoms we enjoy but particularly

our people.

Firstly, we meet at the McGraths Hill McDonalds Restaurant for an early start after which we

proceed onwards to Young. The route taken is basically up Bells Line of Road to Bell, onto the Darling

Causeway to Mt.Victoria, then along the Great Western Highway to Bathurst. Then we take the Mid

Western Highway to Cowra and finally the Olympic Highway to Young.

This route offers a treasure chest of great country back roads with amazing scenery with the added

bonus of encountering very little traffic along the way. We eventually stop at Young for 2 nights

where we will firstly enjoy a traditional HOG carpark party and eventually some more country

touring on prime bikiferous roads (yeah, that’s a word I just invented for fantastic motorcycle roads).
