Compass 2019 Reunion Weekend and five-day ride

Updated: September 10, 2018

How do we follow 2018’s amazing Compass Expeditions Reunion weekend and week-long ride-out?

We move it further up the coast and do it all again – That’s how!

The 2019 Reunion will be held over the weekend of March the 23rd and 24th, and based in the lovely coastal town of Port Macquarie, NSW.

Port Macquarie, nestled on the Hastings River, is known for its beaches, wildlife and convict past, but that is not why we are heading there next March.
For us, the draw is the fantastic riding rumored to be in the hinterland and National Parks not too far inland, as well as both north and south along the stunning coastline of the central north of NSW. It also just happens to be at one end of the Oxley Highway, one of Australia’s best stretches of twisting blacktop, and surrounded by many other road- and dirt-riding routes begging to be explored. Thunderbolt’s Way, The Barrington Tops, Nambucca Heads and Old Bar are just a few of the possible rides.

Fear not! Compass will be doing the hard yards and making sure only the absolute best riding is offered to our valued guests for the 2019 edition of what is fast becoming an annual pilgrimage for Compass tour participants from all around the country and the world.

A 1.00 pm luncheon on the waterfront will be ther meeting point to catch up with old friends before heading to the hills for a bit of moto-fun.

There’ll be a regrouping at Reunion HQ – the comfortable and convenient El Paso Motor Inn ( for some idle boasting and general tyre kicking before adjourning to a nearby venue for the now famous Reunion Dinner. Entertainment, guest speakers and surprises, who knows what’s in store for 2019 – Compass certainly doesn’t know at this stage, but has promised good food, good cheer, a photo competition and a night worth remembering.

Sunday morning, not too early and after a leisurely breakfast, it’ll be back on the bikes to do it all again.

A Reunion Weekend booking includes:
• Saturday Lunch
• Saturday’s fully supported ride
• The Reunion Dinner and entertainment (drinks at bar prices).
• A welcome drink (aren’t they all?)
• Saturday nights’ accommodation – Twin Share, or a single supplement is available
• Breakfast on Sunday
• Another fully supported ride on Sunday
And all for the ridiculously low price of AU$175.00 per person.
As usual, the reunion weekend is only open to past Compass clients, family and friends.

The five-day ride

Following the annual Compass Expeditions Reunion Weekend will be an amazing week of riding through the Port Macquarie Region.

After the success of the 2018 Compass Expeditions five-day ride out of Merimbula, Compass will once again be inviting all riders and pillions to join in a week of exceptional dirt- and sealed-road rides, socialising, dining, fun and relaxation. Each day riders will have the choice of riding dirt- or sealed-road routes, planned for pleasure, led out and supported by the Compass Expeditions crew.

The Port Macquarie region has riding options galore with runs north and south along the coast as well as many routes heading inland across the Great Dividing Range, through bushland, national parks and reserves and onto the rural plains on the western side of the range.

As always, Compass will be searching, researching and planning ride routes that highlight the different aspects of this beautiful region: the mountains, the bush and the coast for daily rides. If you feel like a day off the bike, the beach is a short stroll away, or the swimming pool is at your door. A shopping centre is right across the road and the street is lined with cafes. Within walking distance of town is a lighthouse, the bayside promenade, a native zoo, an elevated rainforest walkway and a museum.

Port Macquarie boasts many fine restaurants and dining options, so each night will experience a new local culinary offering.

Join Compass Expeditions from Sunday 23rd March to Friday 29th March, 2019, immediately after the annual weekend reunion, for a week of amazing riding, relaxation and socialising with others who like to ride, like to travel and preferably do both at the same time.
