CHRISTMAS TRIP IN THE BLAZING HEAT

Well, where to start … what a season! Christmas is always hectic. On boxing day it got to 56°C, I’ve been off the bike for a little while but I was able to fit in a little ride up to my parents place in Newcastle, 400 km north of where I live. I can’t go to Sydney without the National Park, as i wrote about in my last blog.

It’s a spectacular place out of the National Park: I turn right heading through Sydney, across Tom Uglies Bridge – what are name! Who ever thought Tom was ugly, that bridge gives great views both the left and right as you come across. And a little tip for young players: as you’re heading south there is a burger place on the left-hand side straight after the bridge almost back in the emergency lane on the bridge – best burger place in Australia.

I cruise across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, off my right is the Opera house, I know now this is the halfway point of my journey. Normally I take off on the Pacific Highway, which is fantastic for a day ride, but I was in a bit of a hurry and a little bit hung over so I decided to stay on the M1, which is a major arterial road between Sydney and Newcastle. I just put the music on, sit on 110 km/h and just cruise all the way. It’s a great ride if you’re not in a hurry. The Pacific highway is always the best way to go, but sometimes I just like to get there so I shoot up the main road this time. I just cruised and listened to music.

Then you get to the Hawkesbury River for major river just north of Sydney Harbour. It’s one of Sydney‘s Hidden secrets – there’s a fishing spot at the bottom of the bridge on your left hand side as you cross it – well worth the stop and it’s fantastic to go for a swim.

Anyway, after my little break this is the last stop before I get to the parents place 110 kilometres per hour. All the day was magic – not even a cloud in the sky. It’s only taken me three hours to get here so I jump in the pool before I go and say ‘g’day’. I took a few photos of Newcastle.

Any visitor to Australia – this is a must stop on your place to go. Newcastle is a busy working port with coal and bauxite. It used to be a major steel producing port but now it’s just coal and has massive infrastructure that leads straight to the wharf. It’s not unusual to be sitting watching a supertanker drive out the harbour while you have a beer at a little place called ‘the brewery’. Yep, that’s it. We’ve got a pub called ‘the brewery’. The photos I have added are of Newcastle harbour, the tower in the picture is directly above the pub.

Anyway guys, I hope you enjoy this little short trip three hour ride! In this heat I hope you enjoy the northern winter. I hope you guys have a fantastic 2018. Keep the black side down guys!

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.3 - COUNTRY HATTRICK ON THE MOTORBIKE

Published by GINA DREWES at November 16, 2018 in Tours
Carinthia is the southernmost province of Austria and I grew up here. The borders to Italy and Slovenia are a stone's throw away and so I spent a part of my childhood at the sea. However it also felt like years in the car, since my mum made the country roads unsafe with her green lame duck at that time. What always led to bare nerves of all fellow travellers and could only be made good again with a visit to...
