Hi all, grabbing a few days off (hopefully) before easter, plan to leave on the 2nd, 1 night on the road somewhere, 2 nights at the worlds loneliest caravan park swimming and enjoying the Warburton, 2days in Birdsville to help Ruth catch and eat yabbies (never had them before) then back in Whyalla by thurs. night to catch up with the club for easter at Coffins Bay. Busy life but someone has to do it.
I do have a Question probably directed at Ruth, is the cooper across the track as I would love to have to cross on the ferry.

Cheers Steve

Sorry Navaraman never been there before but we hope to stay in the park itself at one of the camping areas. I am in the hands of some of our group who have been before

Cheers Steve

From my experience at Port Lincoln a couple of years ago.
DO visit the Lincoln National Park, but the bottom (Southern) end of it, area called Memory Cove (camping available). To enter the Southern half you need a key to unlock the gate. They only allow a ceratin number (10 or so?) vehicles in the area at one time. The key , map, some history, and camping info is available at the Port Lincoln Information Center (small key deposit required). The Info. Centre is, or was in the street on the sea front in Port Lincoln (near the Tasman Hotel).
Others will fill you in on Coffin Bay - the Coffin Bay Peninsula beyong the "village" is a lovely place.

Pesty - don't worry - be happy - you do not have to cross the Cooper on the Ferry. Last time that happened I think was in 1990 - Ian crossed on the Ferry. I went in there in 2000 and saw where the Ferry crosses the BIG waterhole - we were going to camp the night there one January - stinking hot wind blowing across the water and the mosquitos were getting ready to carry the dogs off - so came home.
Nice little camp spot at the cooper crossing now - got showers and a push button loo. Going to be busy up here - hope no-one drinks Willem's Muscat.

Thanks Ruth I assume from that there is no water crossing the track yet so I am actually disappointed not to be able to use the ferry and bypass road, see you on the 5th

The Cooper water won't get to the crossing at all Pesty. (You could always drive in for a look - I didn't tell you that though).

Old fella has just disappeared to the secret fishing hole to find big fish - just when there was work to do.
