Going via cockleshell road from Jurien Bay to Stock Yard Valley to see the caves and my wife saying what I was quietly thinking, that we had been sent on a wild goose chase for miles of dirt roads and rough sand tracks just wide enough so you don’t start loosing body parts off the LC to finally arrive in the middle of nowhere- and not being able to find a parking spot. Unbelievable… then to entrance the caves which where 15 minutes before here say, and my wife to be greeted with “Diane is that you?” friends not seen for 15 years.. Unbelievable ! The Jeep Club from Perth had arrived prior to us. I m still scratching my head.

I have loaded the track into the plot file index (Pedro) its on page 3 the camping at the lake was great with showers and toilets , head around the left of the lake when you get to the carpark there are some very nice sites , the ranger may call for camping fees in the morning

Hello Ross
It was good... We didn’t really know what to expect prior to going there so next time I would like to be a bit more prepared for the trip but well worth the drive. Not overly sign posted but not too hard to miss... a mud map is handy to have with you as it was a bit confusing where the road forks, one toward a house the other veering east... take the one toward the house basically straight on... ill do a trek note as suggested from the Oz-team.
Take a picnic basket, you’ll enjoy it. I have a few pictures ill post on my web page soon if you’d like a look or drop an email to me koh@timegate.net.au and ill forward some for you …

Cheers
Bill

Koh - maybe you would be interested in submitting a Trek Note?

Its been a few years since I was last up that way but we came in from the North (off the Eneabba / Leeman Rd) , the turnoff is a few Ks West of lake Indoon. We camped at Lake Indoon and took a day trip in to the caves, I found this track better than coming in from the South, there is also interesting country /lakes and water birds north of lake Indoon if you are into tracks and exploring etc.
