Adam,

Good starting point would be a local 4wd club.

http://www.4x4.org.au/

Manning Valley-Great Lakes 4x4 Club is a great bunch of people with a wealth of experience (ps I'm a long distance member). Members range from Old Bar, Taree, Wingham, Nabiac and all points.

Wealth of experience.

Hi Adam,

I was in the same spot you are now a little over 12 months ago. Forget the tag along option - as suggested, post up here and other forums your intentions, you're bound to find someone going.

I'm heading up the last week of May this year with a bunch of guys out of Melbourne which I hooked up with through the 4x4Earth Forum. It's been 12 months in the planning and almost time to go. Trip is being led by a chap who will call this trip #6, so a bit of experience up front ensures us a great trip.

Hope you find something similar.

You can't drive to the 'tip' of Cape York ;)


You say you are a mechanic... have you done any camping?

Hi Adam,

I'm sure with 22 years as a mechanic you will be welcome in any crew, unfortunately there is a 200m walk to get to the very tip of Cape York.

It's a pretty laid back place with plenty of Roadhouses along the way, so if you have a swag you can camp.

Regards

Hi Mate
I was planning to go year, but that is probably out now.
So looking at also going in 2013, maybe as suggested we could put up a expression of interest

Cheers
Neil
