This loop starts at the Pacific Highway between Port Macquarie and Wauchope then heads northwest on the Oxley Hwy toward Walcha. From here it heads southeast along Thunderbolts Way toward Nabiac. You can then jump on the A1 to complete the loop. The section through Cottan-Bimbang National Park is super twisty as is the southern section between Nowendoc and Barrington.

This takes off out of Grafton up the Gwydir Highway to Glenn Innes. Linking exciting corners and beautiful scenery. This route heads back to the coast and eventually down into Grafton. There are some great curves between Tabulam and Tenterfield, and some more great sections in the Gibralter Range National Forest. The section along the Clarence River north of Grafton isn’t too hard on the eyes either.
