Yep, I agree!!

Craig, if you're after info about Bendleby, we've been there a few times now, and its one of the best run 4wding properties in the Flinders and its probably closest to Adelaide. Good tracks, good facilities and they supply good firewood.

Craig, this is a bit tooo cryptic. Are you going to tell us about it, or do you want to know about it??? A few more words might get you the answer you seek. :-)

Cheers,

Hi Craig.
Willem advised me to obtain a copy of An adventure's Guide to the Flinders Ranges for my upcoming trip.(available through this site).
It is a great book containing much useful info.
There are heaps of properties listed.

Craig it looks as if we are all a touch fascinated by your post. So it would be nice to understand why

But if you want information on BR then go directlly to their website at bendlebyranges.com.au. Apart from that we have put in a purpose built training track which is available to all track users and offers those new to 4wd a solid introduction to the sort of tracks and challenges you will find on the property. Apart from that you have great campsites and shearers quarters as well.

Apart from that book early as most weekends and public holidays see all their accommodation booked out a year in advance. If you just want to do their tracks then they coordinate the traffic flow at peak demand times and all tracks are one way for safety

The Billy Goat track remains one of the more challenging climbs in the Flinders Ranges and needs an experienced driver behind the wheel and the right tyre pressures.

Regards

RobA

Gday Rob,
Yeah your test track is very good. I took a group of novices (from work) there last June, and it is a great way to quickly gain some skill. One guy took his 2 week old Prado on it and got his first (and only) scrape for the weekend - we just called it a christening.

Also, theres no "au" on the Bendleby Ranges website.

Thanks for you replies everyone - by way of explanation as a newbie I thought I was doing a search on Bendleby instead of posting feedback - hence the rather brief message!

I am going there in May and was looking to see if there were any treks. So I am sorry for causing such a kerfuffle.

Thanks for the links to the web site.

Maybe I can atone by writing proper feedback when I have been!
