Hi All,

I am a new member and thought I would introduce myself by sharing a recent trip that I called "The Outback Loop" - Sydney>Broken Hill>Lake Mungo>Wentworth>The Riverina>Sydney.

Welcome to EO , there is no doubt you will read and learn a lot here , maybe you will someday have someone jump on for posting something that's been done before , I say so what, there are always new members like your self that will get some benefit from it so just carry on as we all do.
Did you visit The Miners Memorial in Broken Hill , thats really interesting, And the Old Town Hall , what a building,

Thanks Willem & Doug,

Yes, the miners memorial is such a moving place. The whole region is great.

And yes.. like any forum, people will say it has been done before etc... but hey... if you dont share, you lose out.

It is by no means a tought route, but to share something like this (IMHO) allows others to get an interest in venturing out there... with the realistion that you don't have to be hardcore to enjoy.

Thnaks again guys for the warm welcome...

Did this trip in a ford falcon ute and again in a Mazda Tribute and enjoyed it both times. A great way to introduce every one to the outback.

Have now booked the Pajero on the Ghan and will do the Gibb River road in a couple of weeks. But it all started a couple of years ago on the trip you have just completed.

To do that trip in a week is a bit of a whistle stop tour. You could spend a whole week in Broken Hill and still not see it all. But you are right, it is better than being stuck in the city.

Seeing your pics of the area around Broken Hill has just fuelled my desire, no NEED, to get out in the bush.

I took a group of people on the Darling River Run in 2000. None of these people had ever been camping before. Both of the other families bought camping gear and have toured for holidays frequently since.

One family bought a farm near Dubbo and go there at least one weekend a month. This camping and travelling thing is addictive. But it is a healthy addiction and far western NSW is as good as anywhere to feed the addiction.

Welcome sambob

Thanks for sharing those wonderful pics of the outback loop.

Photographs like the outback loop get me hankering again for another trip to see what a beautiful country we have.

Please keep up the sharing of pics and the occasional experience with us.
