  1. Hello fellow forumites. I almost forgot to post my final trip report. This one covers that final saunter home from Innamincka, through the Clare Valley and before that the Flinders Ranges. I wish I was still out there…. Stage 5 Innamincka to Home.pdf
  2. Another trip report! This one covers the section of our trip from central Queensland to Innamincka in SA's far North West. I hope you all enjoy reading it. Stage 4 Carnarvon to Innamincka.pdf
  3. I have always said the great value of this forum is that it is a repository of wisdom and full of accumulated information. Plus trip reports are put up here!
  4. Hi everyone. Our current trip continues and we have now arrived further inland. It has been cool but not cold - just perfect. This trip report covers the area between Kilkivan to Carnarvon Gorge, and includes Maryborough and Bundaberg. I hope its informative! Chris

  6. ...and here is the latest trip report. It covers the area between Eumungerie (Northern NSW) to Kilkivan (QLD). In this report we catch up with a few fellow Kedronners and camp in some lovely spots. Stage 2 Eumungerie to Kilkivan.pdf
  7. my favourite dish is the veal scallopine a la funghi (or something close to this spelling 😁).
  8. We are really relaxed now!
  9. We are camped at a fellow Kedronners’ property near Kilkivan, and have a view to die for. Thanks Rod and Jewel!!
  10. I love the Red Centre and have enjoyed many trips there over the years. And we once worked at Utopia Station, out along the Sandover Hwy, but that’s another story for another time. in years to come you will be able to laugh about all this, Tony and Annie. But for the time being you at least have the comfort of the van and a car to get around. Good luck with getting the transmission rebuilt. In the meantime, there is a magic restaurant across in East side, which locals know and love. Casa Nostra. Book before going as it’s very popular with locals.
  11. Great, thanks Karen!
  12. For those of us travelling and keen to get their vaccinations while on the road, I have successfully used the below link. It is an interactive website which allows you to enter some basic information on eligibility first then to find a site near you, or at a specific location where you can get your jab. https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility Before there are any arguments on the merits of the vaccination, I am not advocating whether you should or should not be vaccinated. The information is purely for those who want to use it. I do have a view about vaccinations but this is not the place for that debate.
  13. As some forum items might know, we are travelling from SA to QLD, and mostly camping along the way. Right now we are at one of the loveliest campgrounds you could ever see, Weddin Mountains NP, called Ben Hall’s Cave. The campground is nestled into the mountain range, and is very scenic. Facilities are limited to a drop toilet, and table/chairs at each site. Sites are well spaced, with pine trees and vegetation adding extra privacy. It is free to camp here (yes, really) but there is a one-off $6 booking fee. Phone reception is patchy but doable. This spot is on one of our “Best 10 campgrounds” list. Actually, it may be on our top 5 list….
  14. We are now at Hay, NSW. We are going to the RSL for dinner (they have great Chinese food!) and camping down on the Murrumbidgee just on the outskirts of town. Our camp site has its own QR code to check in! Most spots seem to have one, sited on a little white pole. Before leaving home I downloaded every state’s QR code and have them ready as we cross borders. A lass at the Balranald supermarket said this morning that she didn’t think NSW was using QR codes …. Moral of that story is not to take advice on QR code readers from checkout staff. The cafe certainly required it to checked in.
  15. This is a great article on an iconic trek which many of us have done. But it’s a good resource anyway. the-great-central-road-drive-from-laverton-to-uluru-with-a-caravan.html
