For those interested in getting off the New England Highway when heading north , you may like to take the following route which I took toward the end of last year. Consisting of mainly good gravel the drive and scenery is superb. There are a couple of good climbs that lead to outstanding views of the countryside. The roads twist turn and climb through a beautiful landscape. I took the Putty road from my home in Whalan a western Sydney suburb to Singleton and then the adventure began. From here I was on the back roads all the way to Uralla. except for a slight excursion to Aberdeen but this can be avoided. Just out of town it is time to turn right and make your way to Mt Pleasant, Greenlands, Dawson`s Hill, Bowman`s Creek. It is from here I went into Aberdeen but if you consult your map you can avoid this and continue on to Gundy. Here you can partake of an ale at the Linger Longer Inn. Note that apart from Gundy the previous places mentioned are only localities. From Gundy continue to Timor and then a beautiful scenic climb to Nundle. Next location is Bowling Alley Point (there is good camping at Chaffey Dam) Woolomin, (free camping here too) Nemingha, Kootingal. There is a free camping ground with ammenities between here and Limbri. From Limbri to Woolbrook, Walcha Road, Wollun , Kentucky and finally Uralla on the Highway.
