Problem

I have a mate who has just started 4x4ing, he has done a few trips and is slowly setting his rig set up for camping and easy/moderate off roading.

He lives in Sydney and I live in Wagga. I am trying to find a easy/moderate trek with reasonable camping 1/2 way between Sydney and Wagga (prefer inland rather than coastal).

The plan is he would leave work in Sydney Friday afternnon (4:00pm ish) and I would do the same from Wagga. We both meet "1/2 way' on the friday night - bush camp somewhere.

Spend all sat off road - bush camp Sat night - sun off roading but heading 'out' of the area we are in ready for a mid afternnon sunday depart back to our respective towns.

I have had a look in all the books I have and on the net - can't see anyhwere that meets the criteria

Any suggestions?

Hi KiwiAngler,

There are plenty of tracks in the Brindabellas that should suit your purpose - West from Canberra, down to Flea Creek, up Webbs Ridge and down to MacIntyres Hut for example. More or less halfway. Our you could do Bendethra.

HTH, Cheers,

Val

I am just reading the trek notes for Bridabellas off the Nissan Trek website as we 'speak'

I agree with your comments - it does look promising

Kiwi,

When you find them can you please send in your plot files and we can make some really cool trek notes to share with other readers.

Our new trek note system converts plot files into trek notes automatically (well when we punch the buttons and answer the right questions at least). So if you have a trek you and want to share just send in your plots to the plotswap system or email direct to damian@exploroz.com. If it needs some specific waypoints then send in the wayppoint files as well and we will take care of the rest.

Have a good weekend.

No probs

I actually have a DGPS XM4 - Alt data logger sitewhich can record up to 393,000 waypoints :-)) so it makes recording treks VERY easy :-)

I will take it with me and send in the data

We are planning on doing the trip w/e 9th - 10th Feb

Considering the "easy/moderate" requirement.

Yerranderie
Bungonia SRA
Forests around Oberon
Forests around Wingello (near Bundanoon)
Oallen Ford (on the Shoalhaven North of Braidwood)
Broken Cart Trail (southern Brindabellas)
Tuross Falls

My family lives in Sydney so we've had to meet halfway for years...

KiwiAngler,

And that prize would be the winch to go with the winch cable that I got off you a while back. :-))

Enjoy Bendethra, it is a great place to camp.
