Itinerary

Day 1                448 klms

Airlie Beach to
Charles Hut

We pick you up from your hotel at 8am. After stowing all
your gear in the support vehicle it’s time to get acquainted with your bike.
Following a rider and safety briefing we start the the first part of the trip.
Leaving Airlie Beach the first hour of riding is on bitumen road getting use to
your bike. We wind our way North through Bowen then head east, up over the
range and get onto the dirt road for our first part of the adventure. We wind
down the other side of the range and deep into cattle country. After a lunch
stop along a river bank we head of into the afternoon sun and push on further
east and even deeper into cattle country. Apart from the first hour we stay on
dirt tracks the rest of the day. By late afternoon we arrive at our first
overnight stop at Charlies Hut for a well-earned meal, a cold beer and get the
fire going and setup our first of many camps across Australia.

Day 2            406 klms

Charlies Hut to
Longreach

After a big cooked breakfast we break camp and continue east
towards the Thompson River. We will see kangaroos and emus all morning as we
cross the Great Dividing Range and ride across the Mitchell Plains to our lunch
break. As we continue along the Thompson River we enter deep into west Qld
cattle country and turn south towards Longreach. If we get an early start and
the riding is smooth, there will be time in Longreach to visit the Outback Hall
of Fame and the QANTAS museum. In Longreach we stay at the camp grounds where a
shower is welcome and dinner is at one of the local pubs.

 

Day 3             320 klms

Longreach to Cooper
Crossing

Leaving Longreach behind us we continue along the Thompson River
and wind our way along old stock routes. Lunch is on the bank of the Thompson River
near Jundah. After filling our tanks we continue south along the
Windorah-Jundah stock route to Windorah for a well-earned drink at the pub. Our
overnight camp is just a small ride away at Coopers Crossing on the banks of
Cooper Creek. Burke and Wills camped here on their ill-fated exploration of the
great Australian interior.

 

Day 4            386 klms

Cooper Crossing to
Birdsville

Leaving the cooper behind and with the early morning sun on
our backs, we continue on well-formed roads towards the Betoota Hotel. The
hotel was closed in 1997but the veranda is a welcome spot to have lunch out of
the sun. After lunch we continue along easy dirt roads and arrive in Birdsville
for a well-earned beer at the famous Birdsville Hotel. Birdsville is the last
town before we head into the desert. We overnight stay at the campgrounds and
dinner is at the Birdsville Hotel.

 

Day 5           167 klms

Birdsville to Peoppel
Corner

Today we get into the Simpson Desert. After a big breakfast it’s
time to say goodbye to civilization and head west into the desert. Our first
dune is called “Big Red” . Here we spend some time and attempt the dune from
the west. Most people make it first go if the sand is hard. Once we have had
enough playing in the sand we once again turn west and continue over the 2nd
of 1200 sand dunes that we cross in the next 3 days.  Heading west along the QAA line to the
Northern Territory border, we then join the K1 line for an hour or so along a
large salt lake then arrive at the French Line. Turning west again it’s only a
few more sand dunes to our overnight stop at Peoppel Corner where the Northern
Territory, South Australian and Queensland borders meet. This is our first camp
in the desert and a chance to soak up the remoteness and the solitude under the
biggest night sky on earth.

 

Day 6         8o klms

Peoppel Corner to
Erabena Track

There is no hurry today as it is going to be tough enough
without rushing. After a lazy breakfast and breaking camp we continue over more
sand dunes and into some of the best sand riding Australia has to offer. Our
lunch stop is at the Approdinna Attora Knolls which are the only hills we pass
for the next couple of days. Then it’s back onto the French Line and more dunes
to our overnight stay at Erabena Track Junction.

 

Day 7         110 klms

Erabena Track to
Purnie Bore

Back onto the French Line we continue on another 300 dunes
and past the Rig Road to our overnight stop and a welcome hot shower at Purnie
bore.

 

Day 8           363 klms

Purnie Bore to
Lambert Centre

After a big breakfast we leave Purnie Bore and we also leave
the sand dunes behind and continue along easier tracks towards Dalhouse
springs. The thermal hot springs soon sooth away the aches and pains from the
days riding. The surrounding countryside changes as we start along the road of
“stones” then a refuel at Mt Dare. Leaving South Australia and entering the
Northern Territory we make our way north toward Finke, then turn east to our
overnight stay at Lambert Centre. This is the absolute Geographic centre of
Australia.

Day 9           420 klms

Lambert Centre to Yulara (Uluru Ayers Rock)

The road slowly gets better until it feels like we are on a
gravel super highway. The easy riding continues to Kulgera and then after a 16
klm stint on the smooth bitumen of the Stuart Highway, we continue to Mulga
Downs, then turn north to the Ayers Rock road. On our way to Yulara and after a
few klms on the bitumen, Ayers Rock looms up behind the dunes.. Ayers rock
stays in view all the way to Yulara Uluru (Ayers Rock)Here is the end of the
tour where you can relax at the resorts or campgrounds and meet up for a
farewell dinner and drink that night at Outbacks.
