Des: did it Last year and used only one Toyota Landcruiser !! Distance Birdsville to New Crown = 620 kms.. I reckon the distances will be the same this year ! Take it easy, lower tyre pressures to 18psi over the dunes, and have an event free trip over the dunes !

Just got back last week. Travelled with 10 adults and 11 children, including my 3 month old baby. The French Line is in a pretty awful state. Very chopped up and bumpy on the Western side. It's probably even worse now that the races at Birdsville are over. We found that the WAA line and Rig Road were much better.

To work out the distances, I'd suggest you buy a map! Our Hema map was spot on.
