My latest YouTube video is up from my bikepacking trip on the west coast of Tasmania. Link in description.

I spent 4 days fatbiking along the untouched wild west coast of Tasmania that is only accessible via packraft. So I strapped my bike to the front of the inflatable raft I was carrying with me and went across.

Let me know what you think!

Just finished riding along the north west coast of Tasmania through some of the most remote and untouched coastline in Australia. It was really difficult and involved crossing the Pieman River on an inflatable raft attaching my bike and all the gear to the boat. I didn't take many pictures, but will share the few that I took over the coming days. I will be making a short video showcasing the ride in a few weeks. Does anyone have any remote bike routes in Victoria or south Australia they recommend?
Thanks @totheriverweride for the advice on the quicksand...that stuff is scary!

A not so fun day trying to navigate my way 20km on a walking track through the mountains with the bike. It was hailing, my brake pads were worn bare, I kept slipping over on the rocks and the bike kept falling on me. 
Carrying the bike on such a small trail was difficult to say the least. I guess this is what happens when you don't double check your route after planning it.
Making my way up to the top of Mt Kosciusko, Australia's highest mountain.

At this rate I should be home for new year's eve. After mt Kosciusko, I'll be making my way through Thredbo, falls creek, Hotham, Mt Stirling and Mt Buller.
After a couple days of riding in the rain in Kosciusko national Park, I decided to stop a little early and seek shelter in Valentines Hut. I was able to start a nice fire and dry most of my wet clothes.
Testing out the fatbike today riding up and down some big hills in the blue mountains. I'm planning on riding from Canberra to Melbourne through the mountains in a couple of weeks. Excited to get back that great feeling bikepacking gives you!
