Hi guys

Hopefully a quick question with an easy answer.

We are heading over to the Flinders Ranges for the holidays and am wondering what the fly situation is likely be at the moment. I've only ever been there in winter before.

With a 5 month bub in tow, if we can expect lots of flies (as you get in the High Country over summer), then I'll bring the mesh flyscreen for the trak shak. If the fly situation is not too bad, then I can save some room.

many thanks
Ian

Spoke to some Brits last weekend just back from a bit north of the Flinders. They made a particular point of commenting on how bad the flies were. Mind you, they were Brits, and on their first bush trip, so you might have to make allowances.

Have made a number of trips to the Flinders.

Like anywhere in Oz there are plenty of flies. Worse if hot.

Take the mesh flyscreeen.

It's the only place I've ever felt the need to wear a fly veil over me hat.

Make a full baby fly veil for the little one, keep the filthy beggars away from him.

Thanks guys.

You have convinced me to take the fly mesh. Better safe than sorry.

Buy yourself a dozen or more of them, and then sell them for 20 bucks to every poor soul who didnt bring one, and the store ones at 10 are now sold out.

Could pay for a trip to the flinders like that ;)

Always carry a few spare, as well as bum fodder, 2 things that are often forgotten, and can bring a high price.
