A very warm welcome to New South Wales for cyclists from Victoria. I am one of quite a few who have very much enjoyed travelling south for the Great Victorian Bike Ride. I trust that you will consider travelling north in 2008.
The New South Wales Big Rides have been a nice friendly size - 1000 to 1500 riders. Not much opportunity for a queue to form for anything.
Apparently it's starting somewhere in the Blue Mountains and ending in Newcastle after going through the Hunter Valley. Jenolan Caves and Dubbo were mentioned. Timing will be 2 weeks at the end of March and beginning of April.
