I would have thought it's the same as every other OCR. Second Saturday in August. (In even numbered years)

As the crow flys? Need to set the program to "avoid highways" "prefer secondary roads" and "travel by bicycle"? That should get you small dirt roads ...

Interesting, any tips on how to get myself and my bike from Melbourne to Darwin fairly cheaply? I would be keen to come up, but can't afford enough time off work to ride up and ride home.

Get on to Wayne's MC towing. He's usually in here somewhere. Try a pm.
Or you could try riding it
