Planning to tour Australia by motorcycle? Read the five tips below carefully, so that you can start your motorcycle holiday well prepared. Good preparation is half the job.

1. Determine in advance where you want to rent your motorcycle. Find a reliable rental company with good reviews. By comparing the prices of various rental companies, you can save a lot of money.
2. Plan your routes in advance. Australia is so big that it is useful to know in advance exactly where you want to go.
3. In Australia you don't just get from A to B: you have to drive a long time to get to your next destination. Practicing with long motorcycling is therefore highly recommended.
4. Always check the weather forecast. You can't take a lot on the bike, so only take what you really need according to the weather forecast.
5. Are you going in high season? Then book your accommodations in advance. If you plan to go camping, invest in a good tent.

General:
Toll roads:
Toll roads are ideal for getting around or through a huge city like Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane quickly, and very easy to use. There are no toll booths, so you cannot pay on the spot. The toll must be paid by yourself by telephone and credit card within three days of using the road or tunnel. When you pick up the rental motorcycle, you will receive all information about this. It is a simple system but it requires action on your part to avoid fines.
Traffic rules motorbike:
Motorcycling rules in Australia vary by state or territory. Inquire about the regulations on site.

Helmet:
The wearing of a helmet is mandatory for the driver and passenger. The helmet must comply with the Australian Standard (AS / NZS1698) or the European standard (UNECE 22.05), which is indicated on a sticker on, or a label inside, the helmet. In some states, such as New South Wales and Victoria, a helmet may no longer meet the standard if it has a small camera mounted on it, if speakers (Bluetooth) are built in or if the helmet has a tinted visor.

Lighting: Low beam is not mandatory during the day, but is recommended.

Passengers:
The transport of 1 passenger is allowed. Children under 8 years of age cannot be carried on the motorcycle. Children 8 years and older may only be transported on the back if they can reach the footrests with their feet. Younger children may be transported in a sidecar. In several states, such as New South Wales, Northern Territory and Queensland, the carriage of a passenger is only permitted if the driver has held a motorcycle license for more than one year.

Driving side by side:
Motorbikes are allowed to drive next to each other as long as their distance does not exceed 1.5 m.

Traffic jam:
In Australia, it is permitted to slalom between stationary or slow-moving cars in a traffic jam (lane filtering), provided that a maximum speed of 30 km / h is observed and other traffic is not endangered.

Petrol stations:
In Australia, a gas station is often called a servo (derived from a service station). In the outback, a gas station is often called a road house. Pay attention; The number of filling stations is very limited, especially along the southern main route and the north-south connections. Keep this in mind and bring enough spare fuel with you. For example, use the Fuel Map Australia app (fuelmap.com.au) to search for nearby petrol stations and check their current fuel prices.

Opening hours:
Gas stations are usually open from 8am to 6pm or 8pm at least. Many petrol stations in larger towns and along motorways offer a 24-hour service or have filling machines. When planning longer trips, keep in mind that outside of major towns and along minor roads, petrol stations are not open at night or in the morning, and sometimes on Sundays.

Pay:
Cash can be paid at petrol stations. Credit cards are accepted at most petrol stations.

Tank dispensers:
Major credit cards are usually accepted at filling machines (pay-at-the-pump), but a pin code must often be used.

Reserve fuel:
Because distances between places in Australia are long and gas stations in the outback may not always have enough fuel in stock, it is recommended that you always bring a spare tank of fuel with you. It is forbidden to carry fuel in a reserve tank on ferries.
