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
