Set off from Tin Can Bay in May/June with Daughter, son in-law and two beautiful (4 and 5) heading for Cameron Corner via Noccundra and down back track. At this stage the son in-law having his first trip into the bush was concerned we olds were lost.

meanwhile thought UHF was great and got concerned when Pop and Ma, who were leading went out of sight. (All this changed by the end of the trip when got upset if they were not leading encouraging Dad/Mum to speed up and pass us.)
Made the Corner no problems and enjoyed 3 days camp there before heading to Innamincka via old track. The first half was a highway (mining) second part two wheel track but OK.

Three days camping at Dig Tree where we enjoyed Yellow Belly out of the Cooper)caught by son in-law (made fisherman). Great fish to eat. Then off the Haden Corner where road was again good. Haden Corner access over a sand hill to be greeted by millions of flies. One night stop was plenty.

Next stop Windorah for 3 day camp on the Cooper and more Yellow Belly before heading to Mt Moffet where we camped for 4 days.

Then the sad part as we each headed home. most upset as they had a ball camping so there we a few tears but brushed away with a parting Tim Tam.

We all had a great trip and think the enjoyed it most with their introduction to Aust Bush, camping, camp fires, camp cooking and millions of Stars

Would recommend the trip and great way to see and enjoy special places in Aust history. Our trip took 3 weeks (son in-law need to get back to work)

We towed Gunyah off road van with Isuzu D Max LSU while Kids had off road trailer and tent towed by yet another Isuzu D Max LSU. No mechanical problems at all, not even a puncture.
