I am wondering if anyone attending the ceremony at Ooldea on the 17/10/17 is thinking of travelling on the access track from the Stuart hwy. via Tarcoola . There are different versions on the legalities and whether you should or shouldn't do it. I've wanted to travel this part of the track for years and thought this would be a perfect time.

The track will be closed by ARTC. It will be fenced off with guards. Maybe closed forever.

I don't know how I missed that thread. Thanks Boobook for the link. Still a lot of debate though on the subject. I'm planning on attending the ceremony and then heading to Maralinga to do the tour with Robin

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

I’ve been laid up in bed for the last 3 weeks and couldn’t make it. I’m very disappointed. I will get over there next year and also do the tour of Maralinga when the weather cools a bit.
