Riding Australia DVD
Sydney to Perth across the Nullarbor Plain
In this brand new three hour series of Worlds Greatest Motorcycle Rides Henry Cole sets off his Harley Davidson Street Glide for surely his biggest adventure yet: To ride some 6600kms from Sydney on the east coast of Australia right across this vast country to Journeys end in Perth on the West Coast.
Along the way Henry will have to endure searing heat, torrential rain, hail storms and the risk of 7ft high Kangaroos, Emus and half a million Camels all hell bent on ending his ride prematurely by running out in front of him and his Harley.
All this and having to ride 1500miles of one of the most inhospitable terrains in the world – the Nullarbor plain conspires to make this ride one of the hardest hes ever embarked on.
But before he rides into oblivion into the outback Henry checks out the delights and the vibrancy of Sydney before heading down to Melbourne taking it one of the greatest coastal rides in the World – The Great Ocean Road.
Its then up to Adelaide via the fascinating old railroad town of Quorn before heading due West hugging Australias South Coast across the Nullarbor plain.
With only the roadhouses for sanctuary and sustenance, some 300 miles apart, the Nullarbor is a true adventure. Henry also meets the people who live and work on the Nullarbor who share their experience of what its really like to exist in such complete isolation.
After some 6,600kms and three weeks on the road Henry eventually rolls into Perth but will this ride have been his greatest adventure yet or a road too far?!
