Joan’s Favourite Corner


Escape the city limits and explore the extraordinary New England High Country on two wheels.

A ride through New England High Country in north east NSW is as much about the journey as the destination. It’s about watching the scenery change, stopping to explore fascinating country towns, and experiencing a landscape that looks as though it could only exist on a postcard.

Follow Joan as she takes us through her favourite corner of New England High Country. From the stately and historic Petersons Guesthouse in Armidale to the popular Café Graze in Walcha and on to the sumptuous Merilba Estate in Uralla, Joan’s itinerary showcases the very best of this exhilarating region. Join Joan as she rides pillion along the wonderful Waterfall Way and Thunderbolts Way, with numerous stops and detours along the road.

Of course, there’s more than one way to tackle this exciting region, as evidenced by Motorcycle Trader’s editor Grant Roff and his recent journey through the region. Click here to read his account of the beautiful New England High Country.
