I'd like to mark out the route on Google Maps but it doesn't think the road goes through in one section. In the meantime here is the route we took. I printed this out and had it on my tank bag so it was pretty easy to follow.
Best map I've found of this area is the NRMA "Far North Coast - NSW, Touring Map 6".
The Condamine river crossings took longer than I expected and we made lots of stops for photos, boil the billy etc. By the time we got to Paddy's Crossing it was getting late. It was so nice we decided to camp there rather than rush to our intended campsite before dark. So we shortened the route a bit, doing about 200kms each day. Average
speed was just under 40kms hour, including stops, and a detour up a side track and a couple minor incidents/falls.
I'm thinking an easy re-run of this would be to go the opposite way & call it "The Wrong Way Round".
