Outback motorcycle tours with an expert.

Remote Outback Australian scenery and terrain, a hot shower each day, fully catered meals, and comfortable swags are among the rare luxuries guaranteed on a series of spectacular motorcycle tours that have been selected and organised by former 500cc grand prix ace Daryl Beattie.

daryl beattieThe highly respected winner of three 500cc world motorcycle grands prix and runner-up to Mick Doohan in the 1995 world championship has formed a new business called Daryl Beattie Adventures.

Daryl is also a much-valued, regular contributor to the outbacktravelaustralia website.

His planned Outback adventures are a far cry from Beattie’s competitive days and role as a network
television sports commentator, but he says there’s a simple reason why:

“I've spent many years in the Outback," said Charleville-born Beattie.

"I have a personal passion for this country and it's something I want to share with others.

“I’ve spent a lot of time travelling to spectacular and remote parts of Australia and I reckon I’ve picked out some awesome routes for our bike tours.”

For 2015, Beattie has planned several adventure motorcycle tours into the Australian Outback, scheduled to fit around his ongoing MotoGP television commitments for Network Ten.

The first Beattie tour - a Birdsville-to-Alice Springs ride, including a spectacular Simpson Desert crossing - starts on March 17th.

Tour 1 ~ Birdsville to Alice Springs March 17th-21st

Tour 2 ~ Alice Springs to Birdsville March 22nd-26th

Tour 3 ~ Alice Springs to Birdsville May 24th-28th

The Canning Stock Route tour - Newman-Wiluna-CSR-Broome - dates are 18th July - 1st Aug 2015.

Other fully-supported, highly-catered tours include  Cape York rides, starting in Cairns and finishing at the tip of North-Eastern Australia.
