    parcours 1,949km Sydney/Brisbane
 
1,949km pedaled since leaving Sydney, including the road and all side trips, in order to discover all these marvelous places, many off the beaten path. After some flat tires, the stem of my bike seat broken, the trip continues with its fascinating discoveries and culture. During the trip from Sydney to Brisbane, l received the typically warm welcome that l had known previously from the very sympathico and friendly Australians.
Welcome to Brisbane! Best regards Patrice.
