Description

Long weekend, monday being the holiday. Jaurdi Station, approx 100km Eastish of Southern Cross, on the Great Eastern Highway. Easy trip, with Station Loop drive available for those that want it. Info pack comming from CALM, so will update when i get it. All welcome to come along.
Update 7/8/06.....................................
There is abandoned shearing sheds still almost perfectly intact, a couple of dams (bring yabbie nets) and old mine workings about.
The jaurdi homestead has running water, electrical wiring (for a gen set) furniture, pot belly stove etc. You can stay in the homestead (call CALM Kalgoorlie on 9021 2677 for a booking) but that is paid- I think $5/pp or so. It also has a few separate buildings nearby with rooms for group accommodation with a fire pit in the middle of the buildings.
There is another setup with better scenery a bit further up the track past the dam too- Its an old exploration camp in the valley of a breakaway formation. There are a few old shafts in one corner although they have mostly collapsed. There is no charge for staying there, and its worth checking out.
Unfortunately no dogs are allowed there.
Does everyone know where this place is?????
If not,,,well its approx 98km past Southern Cross, then turn left(North) onto Ryans Find Road. Fom there it is approx 50km to the homestead area.
Self sufficiency is a must(including firewood- camp fires allowed), with all provision available at Southern Cross.
Hope to see everyone there.
