Burke & Wills Expedition 2015
Melbourne to The Gulf of Carpentaria
The Australian company behind the BMW GS and TS Safaris is inviting all two-wheeled explorers and history buffs on an adventure ride to follow the footsteps of Burke and Wills.
The 10-day ride kicks off on August 20 and covers a similar 3600-kilometre route as the iconic explorers from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria. While history shows the expedition ended in disaster, the explorers did successfully complete the journey north.
The story of their six-month trip will be re-told throughout the ride with a nightly narration delving into the history of the original expedition. The supported ride is open to all adventure and enduro motorcycles with an all-inclusive price covering meals, medical support with a bike-mounted paramedic, detailed route information as well as camping and motel accommodation.
Register now, as bookings for the expedition close on July 31.
