In the Australian today about a crossing of the Simpson Desert. Not on foot or bicycle, not in a car but in a boat. And why not?

These guys have waited and obviously got a fair body of water as detailed in the Australian article.

The Kallakoopah Creek was obviously quite different to how most see it as a tributary of the Warburton and also the Warburton itself.

Great to see guys. Good thought to do the planning and achieve.
Cheers,

Mate, you better get the mod to pull the other duplicate as the hit rate is already higher. LOL

Hope you have got all those Gold Coasters organised with HFs. Planning to do a short trip into Eyre areas soon.

Read the story from the newspaper, I'm just wondering if the meant the source or the river, Mouth is where is where it ends, source is the beginning.


..?? Entering the mouth of the river near Cowarie Station in the middle of last month, the party disembarked 13 days and 370km later, 20km shy of Lake Eyre.

I quite agree - it definitely is not a crossing of the Simpson. Always fascinating to me how people can go into areas where it is not permissable to go! Having said that I know quite a few people who have been down there.
(Am I jealous - am I what - for years and years and years have been wanting to go down into that area and it was either too wet or we were too busy!)
