Gilles highway - Northern Queensland
Just south of cairns the Gilles highway runs from Gordonvale up the Lamb range to the Atherton Tableland. It has a reputed 258 corners in the main 19km section and is the premium ride in northern Queensland.
I traveled to Cairns and the nearby areas a few times when I was younger and I would love to return there and ride the Gilles, Parmerston and Kuranda Range and around the Tableland area - but its simply too far north for me to ride with only straight highway between here and there. It is however on my short list of places I am thinking of flying to and hiring a motorcycle (along with Tasmania and New Zealand)
The nearby Parmerston highway is also an exceptionally good road with more open sweepers and roller coaster rises and dips and you would have a wonderful loop if these were combined. Kuranda range is the third climb up to the Tablelands and also a nice ride but shorter and with more traffic.
Anyway until I can get there and get some up to date photos enjoy this virtual ride up the famous 'Gilles' - it may be very far away from most people but its definitely one of the best motorbike roads in Australia.
