Getting there from Gold Coast, and a Saturday ride.
Here's my draft plan for getting there:
Leave Gold Coast 7:30, to Tyalgum, then Mebbin State, Border Ranges, Lions Rd, Toonumbar Forest Rd, over the top & down Coxs Rd to Summerland Way.
Then more gravel via Glen Rd (BrettStrom's shortcut) and Boomi Crk Rd into Urbenville.
Even going hard top, it's 3 hrs (200 km) so adding in the gravel bits, it will be about 5 hrs. Steadily plodding on will be the order of the day. Due to a slightly faster pace, probably not suitable to beginners. BYO lunch & drink. Should be in Urbenville by early-mid afternoon NSW time. Anyone want to come with me?
Chef, have you organised an off-road loop?
Brett, any ideas for the latte set? The only cafe I know of near your place is Killarney & Queen Mary Falls, but I thought that's a good route home on Sunday morning so do something different Saturday afternoon eg, perhaps down to Bonalbo Pub (1/2 hr each way) or to Drake (an hour each way).
