NSW OUTBACK in the SPRING - BROKEN HILL

 

Join Richard and Banjo and celebrate the start of Spring in the Outback, while exploring the mining heritage around Broken Hill. Over 125 years the Broken Hill mines have generated over $100 billion wealth for Australia.

 

Our host at Broken Hill will be Prof. Ian Plimer, Australia's most famous geologist and a prolific author of controversial books. We can camp on Ian's extensive property near Broken Hill. He will take us down a number of mines, including Daydream, Terrible Dick, and Umberumberka mines. Proposed destinations include Lake Menindee, Euriowie, White Cliffs and any other places that take our fancy. As always, the trip is on a 'come when you can and leave when you must' basis.

 

The trip is dog friendly, so bring your Other Rover to keep Banjo company.

BENDETHERA

 

So you thought with Gavan moving interstate, a Club trip favourite may be no more. Well, you thought wrong!

Ivars Karklins continues the tradition by leading the extended weekender to beautiful Bendethera in the Deua National Park.

 

The main trip will start on Thursday in Moruya before heading into Bendethera to set up camp for three nights.

For those able to join the trip on Thursday, camper trailers will be welcome. Members are welcome to sign up for the normal weekend trip where we will meet at Braidwood on Saturday morning, though camper trailers will not be permitted on the tracks we will be using for Saturday joiners.

 

The trip will explore a variety of steep local tracks with spectacular scenery and lots of native wildlife.

 

Contact Ivars for more information and to book.

CARINDA - A Tribute to DAVID BOWIE

 

A weekend of music, local and travelling bands and activities for families young and old whilst experiencing the Outback of Australia over the October long weekend in a tribute to David Bowie.

In 1983, David Bowie arrived in Carinda to the surprise of the community and filmed his iconic video clip ‘Let’s Dance’. At the time, Carinda was a bustling outback town - a cinema, shops, two football teams and a thriving community. Now there is a pub and a petrol station - that’s it. No motel and not even a bakery.

Help support the Outback by participating.

Carinda is in the far north of NSW 651km from Sydney and 70km SW of Walgett.

Suitable for swags, tents, camper trailers and caravans.
