Sounds a great plan. Just hope I can make it!! Hope to see the travel agent in the next week or two so should have a better idea of departure dates and how they fit in with the weekend in question. Option for me just to do a day or two and get back earlier if need be. Smile

Just spoke to a number of people that attended the Nindigully ride last weekend!

Roads from the south were all good and fuel is reasonably readily available, some
servos were closed but credit cards can be used after hours

The pub itself has rooms avail $40 per dbl. and others were allowed to throw there swag out
on the verandah.

meals were enormous at about $27 a main

Beer was cold and refreshing

It has been suggested to start a Nindigully Pub Rally as of 2011 open to all forums!

That's great news.

An annual inter forum charity ride to Nindigully has potential.

Looking forward to the ride in Sept. Once I firm up some indicative #s, I'll phone the pub.

Has the subject of accomodation been discussed as yet?

Are we swagging or hotel/cabining??

Are we allweather or weather permitting???

I will be attending this ride if works permits Question as SWMBO has given the stamp of approval cheers

I'd prefer to hotel or cabin.

Here is an option for Narrabri. Feel free to suggest others:

http://www.wotif.com/hotel/View?hotel=W52990&page=10&viewType=all

I'd probably take a single for myself @ $80 but the family room @ $130, shared with three is economical.

The Three Ways Motel at Gilgandra for the return trip is another option.

http://www.quickbeds.com/Hotel.aspx?PropertyID=7539&StartDate=7/14/2010 9:03:15 AM&Nights=14&PropertyName=Three Ways Motel&OffsetLM=True

As far as I am concerned, I would go regardless of weather. Each person should consider their circumstances and once we have some input re accomodation choices and whose sleeping with who, should consider making bookings.

The other alternative, with the exception of Nindigully, where we should book our rooms, is to just ride into Narrabri and Gilgandra unannounced and find accomodation. Being the first day of the holidays is my only concern re finding something, but really don't think these towns will pose a problem.

I dont want to throw a spanner in the works and I know I was the one concerned about a first day long haul however I am re-considering the two day ride to Nidigully and wonder whether in fact we should do it in a single day. If we leave early and stick to disciplined stop and rest plan it may work out. your thoughts please. happy to comply if this option is now off the table

So what where up thinking Dave. Full day ride to Nindigully on the Saturday. Stay overnight there and ride back Sunday or start heading back on the Sunday afternoon and stay somewhere on the Sunday night for a Monday return. Not so much a spanner, but a stillson.

I cool what ever 1 day 2 days doesnt worry me.
I terms of room I will take a single hotel room if available.
Spa suite would be preferable but if I have to rough it with just a bed that's ok too

Greetings All
I ride that road Gunnedah etc to Moree very regular over a day and it is SOOOOO boring epecially from Narrabri on.
Two suggestions would be :
1) Ride to Tamworth and then through Tamworth to Barrabara and Manilla -on to the road that joins Inverell and Moree. Fossickers way I think
Did this way the other day and worked out to be 35 ks longer from Moree to Willow Tree than going the Gunnedah Narrabri way and a far better road avoiding so many trucks that travel the Newell sitting just on the speed limit and can be a police trap if you have to travel a bit faster to get around them. On the other road, no sign of police and a great ride for a bike .
OR
2) Go up the Pacific Hwy to Gloucester and thru Thunderbolts way to Uralla ---cut accross to Inverell and then Moree also good riding roads and believe me the Gunnedah Narrabri --although great cruiser riding can be quite slow and busy.

Just my 2 bobs worth and could be interested anyway on that ride . 700 ks would be no problem for me as I have retuned the same day making a round trip but if I am twoup then I will be a lot slower and more frequent stops for a break.
Cheers for now Len

Yes Lens suggestions are good . I have ridden the Fossickers way as my sister lives at Barraba so can vouch for it. (pretty sure we could stop there for a barbie lunch no problen)

Would suggest a single day trip to Nindigully. I only get 200ks to a tank so will need to stop fairly often anyway. As said I will be coming back via Brisbane so up to you guys as to how you return.

Len, I'm not familiar with the roads, but my maps suggest both routes would be about 900 km to Nindigully. Can you post some maps and distances up if you get a chance.

Hi Ed and
Shortest route is via Gunnedah at about 598 Ks then thru Tamworth and Manilla is about 646 ks , longest is thru Gloucester and Inverell at about 698 ks.
By far the least picturesque

Google maps:
#Hornsby to Branxton ,Willow Tree Gunnedah Moree

#Hornsby to Hexham Gloucester Uralla Inverell Moree

#Hornsby to Branxton Tamworth Manilla Moree
Sorry Friends , I am not aux fait with sending links etc

Cheers Len

Sorry all
I was so fixated witht the trip to MOR-BLOODY-EE,--- thats is as far as I was calculating---

Then again I did intimate that I am not really cool . ith this computer thingy.

I do not mind the few extra ks as the trip from Moree to the pub is a road that IIthink I have not been on anyway.
Apologies to all who tried to draw my attention to my failings and I just kept waffling on,
Just hope I can make the trip so that evrybody will see that I am not quite a silly as I look.
Cheers len

Thanks for updating Len. Your avatar doesn't do you justice. I'll rethink the route in the near future.

Some may remember Matt from the Dam ride. He is travelling to Nindigully and beyond from next Monday. He will report on the roads, fuel etc. At this stage, I will be riding via Nabiac on the North Coast to include a visit to the bike museum with a likely O/N stop at Tamworth day one. Watch this space.

Hi Ed and Stewie,

Just following up on the posts on another thread. ( Half awy ride )http://sydneyvulcanriders.forumotion.com/rides-f3/sydney-brisbane-over-nighter-half-way-ride-t243.htm I like this idea of an over nighter at Nindigully, I'll put it to the Qld Vulcan Riders. Be a great weekend and we could do the Bruxner hwy run through Tenterfield.

I'll see if I can rally up some numbers.

Cheers Macka

Sounds like a good plan Macka. There seems to be some interest from this side as well at this stage. bounce

Matt is at Nindigully pub tonight and sent me a PM. He asked re the 26th and atm that date is looking good.

A bit of info re the burger:

"food was great, a little expensive but worth it. I saw the road train burger in some pics there and its huge. Was speaking to some of the road train drivers and they were saying it's too big even for them to share. Apparently it's 5kg beef and 3kg of flour for the bread plus everything else. I think someone said all up its 13kg of food with the sides etc.."

I can't wait.
