Bells Line of Road (The Blue Mountains) NSW.
I joined this road just before Kurrajong. A nice steep climb then up to the plateau, however a speed camera spoils the fun a bit. At the top a nice lookout awaits, I could just make out some highrises of Sydney even on a cloudy/hazy morning so I imagine the view on a clear day would be superb.
Now you will ride along a scenic but very touristy section of the road that will no doubt have a bit of traffic as well. Then further both of these thin out and you will find yourself on top of the ridges of the Blue Mountains. Here it all comes together, the road and curves are terrific and so is the spectacular scenery.
At the end of the road you have a very steep descent down Mt Wilson into Lithgow. An interesting view can be had from the small memorial stop half way down the range.
