Paddy’s flat to Tenterfield Adventure

This epic ride from Another Guy On A Bike takes us on a journey that will test your adventure ride skills. It has a few creek crossings and plenty of bush bashing. With the dry summer that’s approaching us, I think this will be a good journey for most riders to tackle. As the dry conditions may favour us with dryer creek beds and less muddy tracks, however it may result in most loose and sandy conditions.

Bike – Suzuki DRZ-400

This popular dual sport motorcycle is more like a dirt bike that can be ridden on the roads. It’s popular due to it’s enduro capabilities and built to handle the tough Australian conditions. It’s a 5 speed manual transmission bike that is able to put our 39 horsepower. It’s known to not the most comfortable bike on the highway but this is not the reason why you’d buy this bike in the first place.


The route is mostly dirt with no single tracks. These roads seem to be shared between 4WD and motorbikes. Creek crossings may have rocks that have algae grown on them which maybe quite slippery. Lighter bikes will be able to enjoy this route without too much challenge, heavier bikes are more likely to give you a good workout. Some sections of the route seem to also be quite sandy when going uphill which will be slippery. Give yourself plenty of time to tackle this route.


Depending on where you’re situated, it might be best to plan a trip to camp at Paddy’s flat campground the day before. Plan to take this ride for the whole day and camp or stay at Tenterfield or if you’re able to get through this quickly plan to continue onwards past Tenterfield to find a camp site.
