The 2022 BMW GS Safari Enduro begins at the Central West NSW town of Dubbo and will wrap up 7 days later in South Australia’s wine country at the Barossa Valley. In between you will ride through and stay at some of the most iconic outback riding destinations Australia has to offer.
You will tick off locations like Wilpena Pound, Cameron Corner, Strezlecki Track, White Cliffs, Tibooburra and Arkaroola just to name a few. We spend a very solid three days riding in and around the Flinders Ranges including two nights spent at the spectacular Arkaroola Village.
The BMW GS Safari Enduro is an official BMW Motorrad Australia event and open to GS riders only. The GS Safari Enduro is designed to offer an authentic adventure riding experience with 5 star support in the background. The route will be mostly off road and may include some small amounts of sand, although sand is generally avoided where possible. You will get to experience the Australian Outback and it’s amazing remoteness, with the full safari support crew in tow giving you peace of mind. There will be multiple camping nights along the way too.
You will also have the opportunity to sharpen up your skills prior to the event with a 2-Day BMW Off Road Training Pre-Safari course, located in Dubbo.
Safari is about the riding and the mateship; our goal is to conduct an event where that is all you will experience. Leave the worry behind.

Pre-Safari Off Road Training
There is nothing quite like high quality training to sharpen you up for a week of
adventure riding. At this year’s GS Safari Enduro we will again offer a 2-day Pre-Safari Off Road Training Course. This course will be similar to our Adventure Expert (Level 2) course which will include valuable information and skills training, with a focus on outback riding, to give you the best preparation for this 7-day adventure.
Off Road Training dates for this event will be 13 – 14 August at a location close to Dubbo. Sometimes riding to and from the Safari is an event in itself. For those that are time poor we can arrange bike transport, details will be updated when registration opens.
