Does anyone have the latest on Mt Dare? I called there 4/5 weeks ago and the staff were uncertain as to the future of Mt Dare due to funds required to upgrade or new ownership or something along those lines.

What do you want to know ? The latest is just what you said ! Clearly nothing happens in a hurry in the real Outback and Mt Dare is no different.... every time you go there are new staff who know almost nothing , so what do you want to know ?

Tim I imagine he wants to know if anyone has news more recent than 4/5 weeks old. It wasn't very hard for me to work out that that was what was being sought so I thought I should explain it to you.

I thought it was pretty straight forward as well Bob. Thanks for clarifying it for Tim. And Tim if you are uncertain as to the intention or meaning of a question/query...it probably means you don't know the answer. So instead of wasting your time and others move on to another question and let those that have some valid information post theirs. Bye Timmy.

As of 3 weeks ago, its going to stay open. Limited facilities at the moment, only fuel, grog & camping. No repairs.

The caretakers are waiting for a guy from Melbourne - I think - to take it over. If thatv falls thru, I suspect it will be closed.

BTW, at Mt Dare diesel was $1.49, petrol $1.39, and a slab of beer $55. Less than that and its $4 per can of beer!

Hey everyone, don't panic the new people took over Monday of last week. They had plenty of fuel and were heading to Alice Springs last Tuesday to stock up on important things like grog and food. They have a contract for the season (till around November I believe) and are looking forward to meeting everyone who passes by that way. They are young and enthusiastic and willing to do a good job. Call in and give them some support. Hope this news helps.

I am a little concerned at the tone creeping into some of the answers - people ask questions because they would like to know an answer, and obviously use this Forum because you can usually receive a good answer provided in friendly terms. Not everyone has the experience or knowledge that we may have - please don't "knock" anyone for asking a question. This element that is creeping in does not reflect the normal 'outback' assistance provided by most Australians - I live and work in the real outback and try to assist anyone (even whilst gritting my teeth sometimes) and I still remain optimistic that most Australians feel the same way I do. If you can't give an answer without rancour - keep your fingers off the keyboard.

Here here, Ruth!

As someone who lives and works in the outback, can you tell people three of the things that most commonly make you "grit your teeth" when giving assistance.
