A group of us is considering going camping out in the Lake Moore (Out from Paynes Find) area over the next long weekend, other than locating it on the map I know very little about the place and what is there.
Has anyone been camping out there recently ? - I imagine the wildflowers would be out now ??

Any info would be appreciated

Regards

Alan

Alan,
I was at Ninghan station a couple of weeks ago and there were carpets of ever lastings, the best year for a long time according to the station owner. Ninghan is on the north end of Lake Moore about 50klms west of Paynes Find. The owner welcomes campers, $5 / person / night.

Hi Scooby, we're heading up that way in a couple of weeks. Reckon the wildflowers will still be going? Also any chance of some info on your Canopy? I have 99 hilux single cab and am thinking of something to go on the back.
Thanks, Wayne.

same as scooby - go to ninghan station. lots of places to look at and explore. turn south from paynes find and go along the eastern side of the lake and into koorda - good easy run. western 4wd mag had a bit on this end of the world a couple of issues ago. just don't tell too many people how nice it is.

rgds, mark

Hi Alan,
We were at Ninghan station about 6 weeks ago and the Wildflowers were there then. There are a few places to go “exploring” like Mt Gibson there are great views from the top of all the hills there. The Kids were just left to their own devices they just explored the station built cubby houses that sort of thing. One thing to note we were there for Saturday, Sunday & Monday and on the Saturday Afternoon it got Hellishly windy! So much so that 2 of the 3 tents that we were with (mine was one of them) were damaged beyond repair! I don’t think it was “Normal” Weather for the area though, we had to break camp and move into one of the demountable cabins they have there just as well because it absolutely Heaved it down that night. Don’t let me put you off the place it was great, there is power there but if you intend on camping take extension leads with you, the power is only on from 5:30pm till 9:30pm. Also be first in the shower if you get my drift!

Matt - thanks for the reply. Hopefully the weather you encountered was not a common occurence - we will be in tents (2) and one o/road camper and will take it as it comes. We were in Karratha a few months ago , on our way up to the Kimberlys and experienced some very strong winds - no rain though. We went shopping in the morning and came back to the caravan park to find our awning off the front of our camper, the wind was so strong it forced a zip apart and the awning collapsed. - we were not the only ones in the park that day to suffer wind damage. Thanks again , Regards Alan
