I was looking thru the above book and was considering doing trip 2 ,Mt Palmer and Trip 4 ,Wheatbelt Outcrops. Has anyone done this trips recently and are they worth the drive. We are just looking for a bit of scenery and piece and quiet.Gravel would be nice also ,not worried about actual 4wding .

Cheers Spencer

The Mt Palmer area is interesting and has a bit of history to it, which you should be able to pick up a info sheet from the shire/tourist shop in Southern Cross.
When you get to the brick wall arch ruins, don't just stop there with a quick look and then leave. If you get out of your vehicle and wander futher afield you will see the remains of house ground level eathern/concrete slabs, laid out garden paths etc. Explore and enjoy the whole area.

Yeah it's nice out there, we camped in Yellowdine on the way to Kal over easter. Just watch out for the ANTS this time of year, they are everywhere. Twas hard to find a place to setup camp away from them. May sound silly but I would contemplate taking some ant powder just in case. Sprinke it around the edges of your camp to stop the mongrals getting in.
