Find your favourite corner in New England High Country

The New England High Country region is situated in the north east of NSW, with its capital, Armidale, located nearly six hours – or 475km – from Sydney. The heritage-steeped high country is bursting at the seams with charming country towns, natural wonders and gourmet attractions, not to mention big open roads that reveal the region’s beautiful scenery at every turn.

Of course, the very best part about touring New England High Country by motorbike is the sheer freedom of it. That’s why Travel In, in conjunction with Motorcycle Trader, Australasian Dirt Bike and Australian Motorcycle News, has created these three touring itineraries to help you discover everything this region has to offer. Whether you prefer road riding, off road adventuring, or luxury touring, there’s a motorcycle route through this diverse region to suit your personal style.
