Trip Description

Details:  The itinerary is Bourke, Tibooburra, Innamincka, Qld. Strzelcki Track, Farina, Marree, Andamooka, Gawler Ranges, Great Ocean Road, Victorian Silos, Grampians, Wyperfield NP, Murray Sunset NP and Sydney.

There will be sand dunes in the Murray Sunset NP - apart from that it is nor expected to be challenging.  There will be some costs for permits (Innamincka) and some camping will have to be pre-booked.

The trip will be around 5500 klms and is expected to take 4 weeks.

A pre-trip meeting will be held to discuss the finer details.

Grade: Hard - not because of the terrain but due to the remote areas travelled. Rain can make some areas unpassable and tracks can be closed.

Suitable for: As above except for the final sand dunes component in Murray Sunset NP in Victoria, only suitable for rooftop tents and ground tent camping.
