LAWN HILL NATIONAL PARK & CAPE MELVILLE

 

Join Gavan & Ian Swift on a unique adventure to northern Queensland. It involves first travelling up through Winton to look at dinosaurs, staying multiple nights at Lawn Hill National Park, before heading east to the lower reaches of Cape York where you will explore the remote areas of Cape Melville and Cape Flattery.

 

Vehicles must be setup for long-distance outback travel with all the usual recovery gear, jerry cans for fuel and water plus at least two spare tyres.

 

Due to the restrictions of a tunnel at Cape Flattery, vehicles cannot be taller than 2.4m, or at least be able to be lowered to 2.4m.

 

This trip will include many days of remote area camping and participants need to be self sufficient. Low range, high clearance and all-terrain tyres are essential. No dogs. No camper trailers.

 

Contact Gavan for further information.

 

Be quick as there are very limited places available.

FROM LAKE TO SPRINGS

Outback South Australia

 

Tim steps up again, this time on a excursion to outback South Australia. Starting from Broken Hill, Tim will track past Waukaringa and Lake Frome on route to Balcanoona, then across to Lake Eyre and up the Oodnadatta Track to Dalhousie Springs, before making the return run to finish at Melrose.

 

The trip itinerary is open to input from those attending.

 

But don't stop there, as it's a perfect segue for those looking to continue onto the Grampians trip later in October.
