Hi everyone,
I am a new member so please treat me gently.

I am looking at a trip from Broken Hill in NSW to Marree in SA preferably off road.
I would like to go via Lake Frome and Gammon Range National Park. Has anyone done this trip and is there anything I need to know? Would I need permits? Are there any Trek Notes available anywhere?
Thanks
Mortdad (Greg)

Greg,
Take a tag along tour until you are comfortable in the bush and self sufficient.

Nothing wrong with being with people who can show you a trick or two.

Then you can take what you want to suit your travels.

Cheers

Hi Blue One,

Just because I have asked a question does not mean that I am neither comfortable nor self sufficient in the bush. I have over 80,000 kms of experience touring in my 4wd and towing a Camper Trailer for the most part.

I have been self sufficient with bush camping for over 40 years now and although I am aware that I still have things to learn I am pretty knowledgable on bush camping in general.

That's nice Greg,
With all that experience, if I was you I would be looking at articulation.

I don't have half your experience, though I get by with knowing my capabilities and researching.

Cheers

Steve

Gday Greg
Just whip up to Camerons corner via Silverton and across to Merty Merty (grand daughter loves that name ) and then to Arcaroola and onwards to Marree . The route through Lake Frome , you will have to ask another..

Thanks Muzbry,

I had considered going via Camerons corner but would really like to do the trip I mentioned.

Mortdad, to get to the Gammon Ranges through Lake Frome, you will have to go along the Arkaroola Rd from Yunta.
As far as I know there is no chance of going through any of the station properties apart from the main track from Yunta.
The alternative is to do what Muzbury suggests and go through Merty Merty, but you will not be going near Lake Frome that way.

Hi Greg,

If you are heading that way Arkaroola is worth a look. Right next door to the Gammons.

The only permits you need around there are for Nat. Parks I believe.

You can get to Lake Frome from Balcanoona, just south of Arkaroola.

There is a track south of Lake Frome that runs east west via station property that is much shorter than going via Caneron Corner, but you risk being shot.

Cheers,
