Has anyone been down the Darling from Wilcannia to Menindee before in a boat. Currently planning a trip in september to take advantage of the flows for our group with 3 tinnies. I've been on trips upon different sections along there, but never done the full distance in one hit. Just wondering if anyone here has done this before, and if anyone has done an extended camping trip (4 days) out of a tinnie before and has some tips,

Thanks in advance

G'day Phil...Have a look at This Archived Thread

Sounds like my kind of camping trip mate.

I reckon just go and do it and deal with any obstacles as they present themselves, and that's what makes for a great adventure.

Good luck with it all. Wish it was me.

If you can find a copy of the ABC DVD 2 men and a tinny from a few years ago, it may be worth watchng,as this is about a journey via tinny from QLD down the Darling river and then back up to start of Murray river which they then follow down to river mouth in SA.
It feature John Doyle [Roy and HG] and our new govt climate change Carbon Dioxide expert Tim Flannery [whiich could make it hard to watch these days depending on your views]

The Leyland Brothers did it before their West East crossing. They wrote a book on it called Great Ugly River

My grandfather and uncle did that trip about 20 years ago and they had a ball. Do it on a fresh flow and you should be right
