The Pacific Highway is the most direct route from Yamba up into Queensland.
But motorways are busy and with the weather predicted to hit 40c to hot and exposed on a motorbike
So I chose a route inland which took me through the cool of the mountains
Along some twisty byways
I started early to miss the heat
At Lawrence the ferry was waiting
In the morning light
to take me across the Clarence river.
Soon I was on the Summerland Way
Through Casino and Kyogle and on the Lions Road that leads into the Border Ranges
The Border Loop lookout providing the perfect stop for a coffee stop and a mid morning snack in the cool of a bit of altitude.
It was a hot ride onto my destination west of Brisbane so I hustled along into Queensland

Looks like lovely country you’re riding through. Cold and drizzling here, so I’m quite jealous. But wish you a wonderful trip! Stay safe.
Thanks back home in Melbourne now just catching up on the story of a recent trip north. I can report it was mid 20s and sunny here today as I took to the bycycle
Looks lovely Mic. Safe travels.
Thanks Pauline, back now. Must catch up in the new year
Sounds good. I’ll organise a catch up.
