Hi

Our neighbours in Darwin are considering going to Lorella Springs in July school holidays. They have 10 days.
I have recently spoken to people whist in the Gulf that have said that most of the water holes at Lorella are dry due to a poor wet season.
They will not be taking a boat and will have a camper trailer in tow.
We have been there with boat in tow as my profile pictures show.
Can we please get the following information for them.
Water holes on the station, still have lots of water?
Distance to these holes from the main camp ground, probably in driving time would be the most relevant.
Our memories of the camp ground were pleasant but not somewhere you would drive 1000k to camp at.
We would go back again but only if we had a boat, then again we haven't seen the "new" places that have been opened up in recent years.
Your thoughts folks?

Thanks

Lyndon

I believe they have a phone number. Why not ring them and get the real current status?

from what I got told via the grape vine recently and what prospective visitors are getting told seems to differ a little.................................

Cheers

We're going there on Wednesday for a while.
We're at Cape Crawford and haven't heard anything negative about Lorella from anyone going up or coming back.
We're going to Bauhina Downs for a night or so before going to Lorella.
We'll be away from phones for a fortnight but if you send a message to me that will remind to give you some feedback when we get back to Borroloola.

Please post what you find at Lorella Springs in this thread as we are thinking of heading there a month and would be interested in your impression.
