Off the beaten tracks in mid-South Australia

Seeking expressions of interest for a combined Mount Lofty Rangers and Southern Tablelands trip in September 2024 (before school holidays in each state/territory). Genuine off-road camper trailers/caravans ok – there will be a lot of corrugations.

Trip starts in Peterborough SA on Mon 9 Sep staying at Willangi Bush Escapes with a day off to explore and then on property 4WDing (grading depending on track chosen by driver).

Then we go remote, generally following the Old Ghan line with days off in Farina, William Creek (options to take a flight over Lake Eyre South, and drive out to Halligans Bay on Lake Eyre), on to Oodnadatta, then through the Painted Desert for a day off in Coober Pedy (own accommodation arrangements, eg underground camping).

After some bitumen, its back on the dirt for overnights in Kingoonya and Gawler Ranges NP, before we’re back on the black-top again on Fri 20 Sep allowing enough time for Canberrans to get home over the week-end.

For those with more time available, join us for another week on Eyre Peninsula, exploring various bays, foods and drinks (Coffin Bay oysters anyone?). The trip will finish by mutual agreement between Cowell and Moonta about 25 Sep allowing time to get home by Sun 29 Sep.

Initially 5 cars from each club, to be adjusted according to level of interest. If someone is prepared to act as a second trip leader, we can increase the number of vehicles by travelling as 2 convoys
