Australias best motorcycle roads - Alpine National park

Whilst most riders know of the Great Alpine Road that runs more or less from Bright to Omeo Victoria there are some notable good roads to ride in the areas adjacent.



First if coming from NSW/QLD then you may have ridden one of the Murray river/valley roads and be heading south from the Hume. There is a road referred to as the Redbank road which is a service road for the farms that runs adjacent to the C531. This is not a bad road, a bit bumpy however less traffic or police make it worth a look.


At Tawonga you can ride up to Falls Creek and return (or on all the way to Omeo as it is now all sealed).

The ride across Tawonga Gap is a superb mountain pass with a classis series of corners up to a lookout followed by another series of nice radius corners on the descent down the other side.


North of Bright is another twisty climb up to Mt Buffalo which is a another well surfaced superb motorcycle ride that services the ski resort.


This area is one I need more time riding to fully expand but for now can only point out the good roads and do not have more photos or more recent travel there.
