This famous motorcycling road has much to recommend it, including some epic corners at both ends of the run, great scenery across the valleys and hills of the lower Hunter, and its close proximity to Sydney.

Be aware that a lot of trucks use this road - and don't miss the Grey Gum Cafe or the Cockfighter's Tavern at Bulga to refresh. Remember to take regular breaks when riding.
