Sydney to Brisbane... or the other way?
I'm coming to Australia (first time) in late September and am bringing my touring bike. I'm interested in riding from Sydney to Brisbane. I have a few questions:
1. What about the prevailing winds at that time, would North to South be best or should I start in Brisbane and cycle back?
2. I'm not interested in sharing the road the whole journey with lots of traffic, and was considering an inland route. Hills are OK, as long as my average daily climbing is no more than 20-25 meters/km (~100'/mile). Normally, I like to do about 100km's per day. Are the inland roads of good cycling quality (surface, shoulders or bike lanes, amount of traffic, reasonably respectful drivers)?
3. I would like to do a ride that's a week or so, are there other routes either from Sydney or returning back to Sydney that would be better?
Thanks for any help and suggestions.
