I would recommend the following roads, or at least sections of road.

'Talbingo Mountain' - Snowy Hwy from Talbingo turnoff up, I'd also recommend the Takeaway/General Store in Talbingo for a hamburger.

Elliots Way - Tumbarumba to Cabramurra

Cabramurra to Kahnkoban

Kahnkoban to Jindabyne/Cooma

Adelong to Rosewood - (becareful on this one, the logging trucks are starting to work on weekends as well as during the week)

Tumbarrumba to Jingellic

Tumbarrumba to Tumut

'Bondo Road' - Tumut to Bondo - after Bondo its dirt.

March through to mid May is usually pretty good weather wise. Late May through to September there is a high probability of ice and or snow.

Week Ride..April

Post  McBandit on Sat 13 Feb 2010, 10:46 am

Remember that Easter is the first weekend in April this year so double de-merits etc in NSW.
Weekend after could be good for me.
Some good roads to add to the impressive list from B12:
Snowy Mtns Highway from Adaminaby to Kiandra. Will tie in withthe Elliot Way, Cabramurra / Khancoban route.
Goulburn to Bathurst come back through Tuena to Crookwell and across to Boorowa.
The Bonang Highway from Bombala to Orbost - some dirt but made up for it by some awesome twisties. I use this route to or from Phillip Island. Another from Bomala would be the Mt Imlay Rd.
The Tintaldra pub is good place for an overnight stop.

so....ill be heading down to canberra on Friday 16th April. Saturday ill be doing the loop that goes somthing like Federal Hwy, Hume Hwy, Moss Vale, Nowra Rd, Fitzroy Falls, Kangaroo Valley, Princess Hwy, Nowra, and back to Canberra via Kings Hwy. I think all ups its just under 500km.

If anybody wants to join in somewhere, more than welcome.

The way down will be bells line to mount vic. then oberon, taralga, goulburn to Canberra. Way home, not to sure yet.
And also what is the best way from Goulburn to Canberra? Hume Hwy, or is there a better route?

On our PI trip we went via Tarago and Bungendore. Not too bad from memory and anything beats a Highway pale

Had a bit of a look. From goulburn will head down Braidwood Rd and Tarago Rd.

Also when i hit Braidwood on day 2 on the way home, instead of following Kings Hwy all the way back ill turn off and head along Captains flat rd.
