About this route collection
Plans to go motorcycle through Australia? Then read the following five tips 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 where exactly you want to go.
3. In Australia you don't just get from A to B: you have to drive long to get to your next destination. Practicing with long motorcycling is therefore highly recommended.
Always check the weather forecast. You can't take a lot with you on the bike, so only bring 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, and are very easy to use. There are no toll booths so there is no on-site payment. The toll must be paid by telephone and credit card within three days after using the road or tunnel. When you pick up the rental engine, you will receive all information about it. It is a simple system but it does require action from yourself to avoid fines.
Traffic rules motor:
Motorcycling rules in Australia vary by state or territory. Inquire about the regulations on the spot.

Helmet:
Wearing a helmet is mandatory for 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 a small camera is mounted, speakers (Bluetooth) are built in, or 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 old should not be transported on the motorcycle. Children from 8 years old 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 a motorcycle license for more than a year.

Riding side by side:
Engines may be driven side by side, provided that their mutual distance does not exceed 1.5 m.

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

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

Opening hours:
Service stations are usually open from 8 am to 6 pm or 8 pm anyway. Many service stations in larger towns and along highways offer a 24-hour service or have gas dispensers. When planning longer journeys, keep in mind that petrol stations are not open at night or in the morning, and sometimes on Sundays, outside of the major towns and along smaller roads.

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

Refueling machines:
At credit machines (pay-at-the-pump), major credit cards are usually accepted, but a PIN code must often be used.

Reserve fuel:
Because the distances between places in Australia are large and gas stations in the outback may not always have sufficient 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.

About this region
New South Wales (abbreviated as NSW) is a state on the east coast of Australia. It borders Queensland to the north, Victoria to the south, and South Australia to the west. Its coast borders the Coral and Tasman Seas to the east. The Australian Capital Territory is an enclave within the state. New South Wales' state capital is Sydney, which is also Australia's most populous city. In March 2019, the population of New South Wales was over 8 million, making it Australia's most populous state. Just under two-thirds of the state's population, 5.1 million, live in the Greater Sydney area. Inhabitants of New South Wales are referred to as New South Welshmen.The Colony of New South Wales was founded as a British penal colony in 1788. It originally comprised more than half of the Australian mainland with its western boundary set at 129th meridian east in 1825. The colony then also included the island territories of New Zealand, Van Diemen's Land, Lord Howe Island, and Norfolk Island. During the 19th century, most of the colony's area was detached to form separate British colonies that eventually became New Zealand and the various states and territories of Australia. However, the Swan River Colony has never been administered as part of New South Wales. Lord Howe Island remains part of New South Wales, while Norfolk Island has become a federal territory, as have the areas now known as the Australian Capital Territory and the Jervis Bay Territory.

About this region
Queensland (locally KWEENZ-land, abbreviated as Qld) is the second-largest and third-most populous state in the Commonwealth of Australia. Situated in the north-east of the country, it is bordered by the Northern Territory, South Australia and New South Wales to the west, south-west and south respectively. To the east, Queensland is bordered by the Coral Sea and Pacific Ocean. To its north is the Torres Strait, with Papua New Guinea located less than 200 km across it from the mainland. The state is the world's sixth-largest sub-national entity, with an area of 1,852,642 square kilometres (715,309 sq mi). Queensland has a population of over 5.1 million, concentrated along the coast and particularly in the state's South East. The capital and largest city in the state is Brisbane, Australia's third-largest city. Often referred to as the "Sunshine State", Queensland is home to 10 of Australia's 30 largest cities and is the nation's third-largest economy. Tourism in the state, fuelled largely by its warm climate, is a major industry. Queensland was first inhabited by Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders. The first European to land in Queensland (and Australia) was Dutch navigator Willem Janszoon in 1606, who explored the west coast of the Cape York Peninsula near present-day Weipa. In 1770, Lieutenant James Cook claimed the east coast of Australia for the Kingdom of Great Britain. The colony of New South Wales was founded in 1788 by Governor Arthur Phillip at Sydney; New South Wales at that time included all of what is now Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania. Queensland was explored in subsequent decades until the establishment of a penal colony at Brisbane in 1824 by John Oxley. Penal transportation ceased in 1839 and free settlement was allowed from 1842. The state was named in honour of Queen Victoria, who signed on 6 June 1859 Letters Patent separating the colony from New South Wales. Queensland Day is celebrated annually statewide on 6 June. Queensland was one of the six colonies which became the founding states of Australia with federation on 1 January 1901.
