Responding to our customer demand Compass Expeditions is branching out, in its own backyard, Australia.

Compass Expeditions is pleased to announce that it is offering a rental fleet of “outback” ready bikes to travel the vast interior of Australia. These bikes will consist of the BMW Sertao, F 650, 800 & R1200 GS along with some Suzuki DRs.

“Our outback ready bikes are ideal for those who simply want to get a bike and travel off-road into the interior of Australia” says Mick McDonald Compass Expeditions director. “After all most visitors want to see the 80% or the country that isn’t on paved roads, to address this all bikes will come equipped with a full luggage & camping kit along with certain safety features, ideal for those who don’t wish to purchase all the equipment needed for one trip” continues Mick.

In conjunction with the new rental fleet Compass Expeditions is also offering two superb rides from Melbourne to Darwin, via the iconic Birdsville Track, and Darwin to Melbourne, via Ayres Rock and the Oodnadatta Track, either on clients own bikes or on our rentals.

These two journeys will take in all that Australia is famous for, the legendary wilderness, unique wildlife, epic coastal scenery and UNESCO listed national parks to name but a few highlights.
