Hi Guys,
About to take off for 7 days from Adelaide to Ceduna then north along Googs track and back down between the Lakes Harris and Everard through the Gawler Ranges and back to Adelaide.
Any suggestions from anyone who has done part or all of this trip re camping spots/firewood etc would be appreciated.
I am assuming the terrain will be similar to the Simpson (which I did recently).
Cheers
Huggy

Recommend the camp at the base of Mt Finke for a night - well worth the trek to the top - there is a cairn from an early explorer up there (southern most of the two tips as I recall). Googs lake has good sposts to camp too - no water at all anywhere probably - and temps could be quite high - firewood ? 30 April is usually the end of the fireban season and there is a lot of thick scrub over there.

Googs Track has smaller dunes than the Simpson but last time I was there they were severely chopped out on the southern side due to people driving with wrong tyre pressures.

It is a good run however. Have a look here

About to head off???? It will be 48 in the shade atm. Fire wood won't be needed as it'll be 35 at night lol.
It's a great trip, just not sure if this time of year is ideal.
