    Bluff Rock Tenterfield



    We have free camped two nights here at Bluff Rock and went in to town for the Anzac Parade. The Main Street was lined with people cheering for the Veterans

    A visit to Tamworth Powerhouse Motor Cycle Museum. This is a private collection and the standard of the bikes is amazing. There are about fifty bikes displayed and another 100 waiting for extensions to be made to the museum. If anyone goes through Tamworth this is a must see.

    A drive up to Nundle and a huge group of Adventure Riders were riding in covered in dirt. They are on an organised ride and the joy and laughter from the riders something to see and show Mrs Lin why we ride.

    Anyone have any experience of Dirk Hartog Island?

    Thinking of heading there July next year, just wondering what to expect. Any idea of how long it'd take to tour the island comfortably? It's only 80km long, but I imagine most of it would be pretty slow going.

    Cheers.

    I looked at going up there a few years ago on my yearly fishing trip, ended up going to Quobba instead. I have no doubt about the fishing and would probably want a week there to explore as much as possible. What stopped us was the cost of the barge trip, which was going to be about $600 per car from memory, and the fact that at the time there was only one scheduled time per day for the barge transport which was 8 or 9am. We only had 6 days available so didn't want to lose another 1/2 day by travelling the night before to wait for the barge and that day is then spent travelling and setting up camp. Closest accom to the departure point is denham I think. Definitely still on the bucket list though.
    Knowledge without mileage equals bullshit.

    Emerald Beach to Dorrigo today return.
    Cruising towards Nana Glen on a lovely twisty road a BMW caught up and passed us the Patrol outclassed. At Nana Glen the rider was sitting with a friend at the Idle In Cafe. We stoped and chatted with the rider ordering tea and scones. What a lovely motorcycle enthusiasts business this is with great food and motorcycle photos inside.

    There’s is an easy way or dirt road over the mountains.





    Stopping at Dorrigo Bakery another customer struck up conversation when I mentioned how we got here his eyebrows lifted in that are you crazy involuntary reaction. Turns out he owns nine bikes and uses the DR 650 for this run.

    Going home the tar seal way and these roads are something special for bikes. Perhaps a bike rider designed them?





    Another fantastic day

    We decided to stay longer at Emerald Beach. I see a Ducati ride passed my caravan each day. Last night I caught up with the 65 year old rider who has a Camper van and trailer for his bike. He goes riding in the mountains every day. Today he bought a surf board and has had his two first ever surfing lessons. It is great meeting adventurers like this.

    We walked eighteen kilometers along the beach a couple of days ago and the beaches and scenery are stunning. Walking through groups of Roos and even a small snake on the headlands. Today we walked along the beaches North and out on a headland a 9 km walk. A family of dolphins joined us and entertained as with a final jump before departing.
