The longest ring road on earth! the H1 in Australia.

Hello!
This is what we´re planning to ride next year. Any information regarding petrol availability, campings, hotels and hostels along the way (mainly away from the big cities, towns) safety on the road, etc.
Any information will be appreciated.

Thank you very much.

I've never heard anyone refer to national route 1 as H1 before, and I've driven nearly half of it. Anyway, there's plenty of services (fuel, campgrounds, food, etc) at reasonable intervals, even the more remote portions. This is hardly a challenging route. There's plenty of other people driving it everywhere, at all hours. If you turn off the road into the outback, then its a very different story.

petrol availability - lots of stations on the highway, on the longer sections (Nullarbor for example) fill up when you can.

camping - once again, lots of campsites, and lots of places to camp wild (check iOverlander), campsites are not cheap

hotels and hostels along the way (mainly away from the big cities, towns) - the moment you leave the populated areas the main option is the roadhouses

safety on the road - Australia is one of the safest countries. Your principal hazard is probably fatigue on long sections with few bends (lots of these).

For what it’s worth, I suggest getting off the main highway as much as you can.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
