Looks and sounds interesting. Could be up that way next year.
May go for a looksee hopefully while the road is reasonable and before gets popular.

Great Idea, although I think catered for the more mum and dad adventurers - a great outlet for them though and will probably be competitive.



Looking for adventure.
In whatever comes our way.

Excellent idea. Balgo Pound is spectacular. Lots of brumbies in the area. Large numbers of brolgas on the south eastern side of Lake Gregory. Fuel available 24 hours in Balgo.

I have travelled this track several times, it is a great drive. There is a lot of sand and few corrugations. The corrugations will surely now develop with people driving too fast with to higher tyre pressures, and that will mar a great drive. The Balgo hills are spectacular but you need plenty of time to get the most out of this track. If coming from the south, at Balgo if you see the ranger you should be able to get permission to travel to Mulan and onto Lake Gregory and Stretch Lagoon. This area is full of history but the road very corrugated.
What other people think of me is none of my business.
Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.

The different signs over the years always makes me laugh when your 1st on the Tanami (WA) heading east & I wonder how many tourist that are going to wolf creek crater think we will go & check out the art (This sign was the latest one I've seen was still there in May/June this year) the area around Balgo has some beautiful sites & interesting landscapes
