Hi
We are visiting gove around late July early August and we were wondering if there are any members who would mind if we could leave our car/Tvan at there place while we fly back Adelaide to vist relies & friends ? Would be for aprox 3 weeks, not asking to set up camp in your yard just leave our rig.
Thanks
Lyndon & Bernadette

Good to see that you are back on line, have been watching out for your name popping up.
How did you go on the Oodnadatta section?
We leave next week to do same.

Hi
After all that we didn't end up going up the track, oh well always next time. Spoke to a few people who have travelled it lately and it didn't sound to hard. Off to Cobourg tomorrow to catch more fish! :)
Cheers Lyndon

Any time you are in our area (Penrth Sydney) and require to store no problems, just let me know what dates and will book my holidays for that time, sure the prado will tow it ok LOL. Only kidding but offer stands if you need to. Have a slab out the back which we had the ski boat and camper trailer on so no problems. As long as its the same height as a pop top or lower it will go through our garage no problems. We have 2.7M wide doors and through out to the back. Regards Steve M

Lyndon,

I am the same as Steve, if you are up this way (Gladstone area) and need some where to store the Troopy and Trailer let me know and I'll sort something out for you.

Cheers Sir Kev

Hi Lyndon,

Sticking my neck out here as I'm not management but the best I can do is if you stay with us for at least one night here at the Walkabout Lodge, you can leave you're rig here while you head back to Adelaide. It would be in a secure area inside our grounds but would left here at your own risk. It could be parked where the pink truck is in the link.

Hi Chris
Thanks for that, will take you up on that offer.
At that time of year do we need to book far in advance if only staying one night?
Re the grog laws, i realise we cannot carry in with us but can we buy it there and take with us when camping?

You would probably need to book in advance as we tend to be at high occupancy around that time. Do you have a fixed date when you'll be flying out of Gove as yet?
You can get a liquor permit from the court house when you arrive, they basically just scan your SA licence and you can then buy grog straight away.
Most of the designated Dhimurru recreation areas where you can camp are okay to consume grog but there are some areas nearer the town that are dry areas. All the best campspots like Little Bondi, Cape Arnhem, Scout Camp, Wonga Creek, Memorial Park are all wet areas.
Towing isn't allowed at most of these, are you able to camp without your Tvan?

Hi Chris
GREAT NEWS ABOUT THE GROG! :)
We were starting to get thirsty just thinking about it! :)
Not sure of dates yet,of to Cobourg tomorrow then in Darwin till 10th July,will start to make our way there after that.
The better half is already complaining at leaving the Tvan behind :)
We have a tent.
I thought it was only to cape arnhem you could not tow?
Do you know the reason behind the "no tow" as our van will go places the car cannot.
Thanks again for all you advise
Lyndon

Hi Lyndon & Bernadette,

Email me again if you can as I don't alway check here. You must have changed your address as my message bounced.

It may just be Cape Arnhem, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Wonga creek is also off limits. Not really sure as we don’t tow and I never see anyone else tow into these areas. We went to Memorial Park last week and Laura commented on the way in that there is virtually nowhere that two vehicles could pass one another as the tall eucalypts line the track and getting off track isn’t possible mostly. I know Tvans are virtually indestructible as I researched them a bit before my parents bought one last year but towing does limit manoeuvrability whatever the thing you’re towing happens to be.

Chris

Enjoy Cobourg!
