Hi
Im Looking to celebrate my 50th birthday with my wife of 28yrs somewere spectacular on 24th April 2011, somewere between Gosford and Perth ( as that will be about were we could be by then). Was thinking Ayers Rock, but there must be some special places in the desert regions with some WOW that other 4x4 people could recommend. Maybe a river or creek that is peaceful and quite. Id love to read your ideas.

Thanks Mick & Carolyn.

Yes 2012 well spotted, Lasseters cave looks great, but i was thinking of following the bite (for a faster trip to Perth) due to a 4 week time restraint.

G'Day Mick & Carolyn,

I hope your 4 week visit from Gosford to Perth is 4 weeks one way & not both. Pretty rushed trip if its 4 weeks return. There is just so much to see.

Anyway 3 great spots that come to mind depending where you are on 24th April & your route taken are:-

1. Ruby Gap out of Artlunga in the East Mc Donnell ranges.

2. Cape Arid NP on the South Coast of W.A. (Not Arid as the name suggests)

3. Fitzgerald river NP on the South Coast of W.A. The scenery around the Quoin Head camp area is absolutely beautiful. This is my number 1 pick!

If your towing a van then forget about taking it into these places with the exception of Cape Arid NP but only if you go the long way in. The shortest way with a 4WD to Cape Arid is south from Balladonia.

There are also many places South of the Highway along the Great Australian Bight that are also spectacular stopping points.

Cheers
Stu

Thanks stu,
ill do some reasearch on Cape Arid i think. We will be towing a 4x4 light weight camper ( not a van as such), how would that go getting to Quoin Head camp area?

No problem with taking in a camper trailer to Quoin Head.

I towed an off road camper trailer in there & spent a little while positioning it for the best view!

Try Eyre Bird Observatory, has peace, scenery, history & someone to cook your meals! And you can take the champagne. Just google for more info but need to book well ahead.
