I've starting to plan a very exciting trip somewhere in Australia for a period of four to six weeks, I am fairly new to the cycling game but would like to try and complete a very special trip.
Originally i was looking into Perth to Melbourne but after a few initial reviews this would both take too long and involve many desert type stretches of road that wouldnt offer to much to see or do.
I would love it if people could offer sugguestions of possible routes for a six week trip that would both be beautiful and have a few interesting places along the way, the location does not matter as we could start anywhere in the country.
Looking to start at the end of January.
Anyone who fancies this please feel free to join us

Best bet would be two weeks on a loop tour of the Snowy Mountains, then back to Melbourne (train from Bairnsdale or Albury) for the ferry to Tasmania and another 3-4 weeks touring this delightful island.

You doing credit card touring or spending most of the time camping being pretty much self sufficient? You might want to give some more info on your likes or snap shot of what it is you hope to gain from this tour so more folks can chime in for a better pin point a location to better suit your needs. Are you alone or travelling with the family etc?
