Port Macquarie to Gingers Creek. The long and winding roads.

We have made this a round trip but the rides can be taken reverse or each as a one way.

We have extended the outbound to make the long and winding road ride we enjoy.

This iconic drive west from Port Macquarie is renowned as one of the best rides in Australia with 45kms of twisting corners and open straights. The fun meanders through Ellenborough and Yarras to the bush resort of Gingers Creek, a renowned rest-stop high on the Great Dividing Range.  A well-trodden route for gold-diggers, drovers, bullockies and bush-rangers, this ride is laced with history and stunning hinterland scenery.
