Check out the places report on this site Box Hole Crater
You could probably stop overnight at Eastern_Chief_Bore_West
See the Plenty_Highway Trek Notes for extra details.
It's marvelous what can be found on this site.

Odog Hi, It is on private property but access is not a problem. They have put a new access road in, if You are going in from the Plenty head north past the house on LHS think from memory about 2klm the track is on Your left all signed, One or two vehicles could camp in there I towed my van in but a bit difficult.
Found a reasonable campsite just south of Irrliree.
Regards Mike.

Odog, that's on the Binn's track so there are plenty of signs off the plenty. If You don't have a good map showing the crater etc. let me know & I'll get one for You. When I went up the road hadn't seen a grader for a while.
Mike.

Thanks again Mike, will get a detailed map, hoping it will show up on the hema as well. Looking forward to it, later in the year.. Suppose it would be pretty wet around the area at present, from what's been on the news.. Thx Owen

Hi Mike, do you recall roughly the time it took to get from the Plenty to the crater? Just to get an idea for our bit of a schedule.. I also sent you a msg, just in case you didn't see this.. Thanks Owen
