This link should take you to a map that broadly outlines a trip I will be undertaking from late June to September. I you were doing a similar trip or have done in the past, what do you think are the "Must See" thing along this route.

I note you are doing the Telfer Rd. I'd go the Kidson or Wapet because you get to see the beautiful 80 mile beach.

The only other thing I'd do would be in SA and go through Burra and Orroroo, Horrocks Pass

Hi. Nice trip!

North of Mildura I'd suggest Lake Mungo. Between Ceduna and Port Augusta I'd include the Gawler Ranges and the area around Streaky Bay. Across the Nullarbor I'd suggest the Coach Road and Old Eyre Highway as well as the Eyre Bird Observatory.

Have fun
Rod, Perth

Thanks Rod..those Nullabor sites are on my list. I am hoping to get back to the Gawler Ranges area at a later date and also visit some more of the Gulf regions of SA.

Why do people ask these questions?

What is a 'must see'?

What I might think is great, might not even tickle your fancy

I say see everything. Keep your eyes open and enjoy the journey. If you miss something this time then maybe you could go that way again next time

Well...makes me wonder why some people respond then if it is such a dumb question. Most people like me have limited time and if there is something extraordinary that someone else has found then maybe it is worth knowing about. Thanks anyway.

McPhersons Pillar - to the east of the Gary Highway.

Thank you Alan that just the sort of thing I was looking for. Done lots of research on the web and in books but nothing like the impressions of those who have been there.

Hello Patrol22.

O/T I know, but I like the map. How do I produce one?

It is done using Oziexplorer software. I use this same software in CE version on my GPS enabled PDA. Plot the course I want to travel at home either in Ozi (.plt file) or Google (.kml file), copy to my PDA and just follow the blue line on various scale maps that I have on the PDA.

Probably short cut down/up the Bore Track from Cameron Corner to Innamincka.Ten bucks well spent...

And I love Streaky Bay on the west coast of the Eyre in SA.

Thanks for the hints everyone. I will look seriously at trying to get at least some of them into the schedule.....might even try as use up some of my 4000hours of sick leave while on this trip (just kidding but tempting nonetheless)
