Head south from Sydney on the Princes Highway, your road to follow for the majority of the trip. When you get to Traralgon, follow the A1, which will turn into the M1, and then take the Bass Highway towards Leongatha. And simply follow that until you reach Phillip Island as the countdown to the Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix 2019 continues.
Batemans Bay is a terrific place to stop on the beautiful south coast of New South Wales and The Venetian Cafe comes highly recommended. Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or coffee, this boutique spot will sort you out!
SPOKES TIP: We are in the time of year that the number of riders on Victorian roads increases sharply and with that, the risk of crashes involving motorcycle riders is higher.
The perfect rest stop is located at Quota Park, Narooma, and gives you the chance to stretch your legs and go for a stroll. A great spot to relax and admire the marina is Quarterdeck, also located in Narooma, which serves fantastic fish and chips.
Another spot to stop on your trek to the iconic Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit could be Bega, the Australian town iconic for making cheese. The Bega Cheese Factory is on the edge of town and is great for a light meal and or a cup of coffee.
SPOKES TIP: When the unexpected happens, riders wearing the correct protective gear have a better chance of avoiding serious injuries and motorcycles with safety technologies like ABS braking have a better chance of avoiding a crash altogether.
Continue your travel from Bega east towards Delegate, take the Bonang Highway/C612 between Delegate and Orbost for one of Australia's best roads. Just down the road from Orbost you'll find yourself in Bairnsdale, a great place to spend a night before finishing your MotoGP™ journey to Phillip Island.
Enhance your MotoGP™ visit by staying at Phillip Island or close by. Accommodation is available at the circuit or across the island. You will also want to explore all that Phillip Island has to offer. Tickets for the Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix 2019 are available here.
The Bonang Highway/C612 is an amazing stretch of tarmac between Delegate and Orbost lined by a wonderfully scenic forest. Long stretches of flowing corners are a treat for riders and drivers alike, be extra cautious in the wet, aware of turns with limited visibility and always be on the lookout for wildlife crossing the road.
