Thanks Eagle Mr Google failed me.
I tried to find Jellabinna Rocks in 2009 and I ran across that burnt out AMG Mercedes that you see in Plasnart's blog. When I ran out of time and returned to Ceduna
and went to the building on the corner of East Terrace and McKenzie St, I don't remember the name of the place. If you where to ring Sportspower on 08 8625 2489, who are on the opposite corner they maybe able to tell the name of the organisation. My intention was to see what further I could find out about Jellabinna Rocks for a look at some other time. I met an aboriginal lady who said she may be able to find a mud map for me. She was unable to find a mud map but got very excited when I told her about the burnt out Mercedes. She tells the story that about a year earlier herself and some friends in the Mercedes where going to Jellabinna Rocks on woman’s business when the Merc caught on fire and was burnt out. The insurance
company paid for the removal of the wreck in 2008 and I saw it there in 2009, so she was going to follow up with the insurance
company. When she told me it was a women's place I took the same attitude as you as I always wish to respect sacred sites and only visit if allowed or with permission. She said there was no prohibition on going there (remember that was 2010) but I got the feeling it was not encouraged.
Given what she told me I would go there but I would not publish any tracks or photo's out of respect for the local indigenous people.
As far as the track goes it was well corrugated but there are a lot of tracks. Navigation is the biggest issue. If you have a bit if time and are well provisioned then having to do any back tracking will not be a problem.
Jellabinna Rocks is still on my bucket list. Will be going through Ceduna
again this year I just might have another crack at it. If you find out it is now off limits I would appreciate if you could let me know.
