"You could have a squiz at a couple of tours on my website that are quite good for the general direction of Sydney-Melbourne.
Melbourne/Bairnsdale to Newcastle was a great ride, but you would need to do it in reverse. Jamberoo Pass near…"
"That would work but the if you miss the road from Pambula , DO NOT go up over the hills from Eden to Bombala.

"Here is the route and description of a 4 day tour from Sydney to Canberra, using mainly back roads (some unsealed) which I did in April. I've also got some ideas for traveling further south if interested. In Victoria, bikes can just be wheeled…"

Hi Sydney Cycle-folk,I'm coming to Sydney (from Victoria BC Canada) for a conference in mid-October '09 and have friends in Melbourne to visit. Could you give me some hints on this here "Princes" Highway route? Worth it?
