 To get out of  Brisbane their are two choices:

a) Take the direction St. Pauls TCE to Lutwyche Road which brings you on to the Gympie Road, direction the North Coast. At Coolbuture you can take you can take the Coolbuture Bribie Island road which will take you to Bribie Island, where there are numerous sights to visit, especially Moreton Island.

Anyway, I ended up taking.

b) the road Beeburum Road to Landsborough, direction Caloundral, after having visited the city. Take the Noosa road that runs along the ocean until Mooloolaba. The road condition is good, but it isn't easy to travel these roads when l enter or leave the city with my bike. Thanks to all the motorists who respect bike riders by passing with a good distant around them. A good tip is to hold on well to your bike handles and keep your direction. When l prepared the itinerary l chose some sights to visit that are very interesting, (see the heading"Visits").
