2019 Africa Twin Adventure Ride

Updated: Nov 13, 2019



4 Day's | Nowra to Orange, NSW.

Adventure Ride from Nowra, finishing in Orange, via Batemans Bay, Oberon and Hill End.


Open to all riders on any brand, 4wd backup with lead and sweep riders on Africa Twins supported by Nowra Motorcycles.


Originally a 2 day ride, at the request of riders travelling from out of the area, 2 additional / optional days have been added.

If you have a GPS or smart device, we'll provide the route for you to load, or you can ride with a lead and sweep rider, It's #YourRide #YourWay


This ride is brilliant, the scenery is breathtaking, from coastal beaches to country backroads and hills that seemingly climb forever.

It's a diverse ride catering for everyone, without anything 'nasty'.


Pre-event: Fri 22nd.

We have plenty of room for you if you'd like to camp at Cambewarra (10mins from Nowra), beer and pizza sounds good! or there is plenty of accomodation in the area between Nowra and Kangaroo Valley.


If you stay at the property, we ask you consider making a donation that will be given directly to the Westpac Helicopter Rescue.


Why Westpac? after a discussion with the NSW Fire service, they recommended donations are better sent there to assist as the RFS uses the Westpac service too.

13th Nov 2019 *Important update due to NSW Fires*

Although over a week away, we need to consider the current situation in NSW Parks and forests, we may need to make changes to the final route and in fact, make some changes along the way.


If you are camping at our property on Friday or Saturday night (as listed above) we ask you consider making a donation on arrival that will be paid directly to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.


We will monitor the situation closely, and if the southern areas are affected, we'll make necessary changes.
