G'day all,

Just back from 4 weeks travelling with the family from Warrnambool to Uluru, Kings Canyon & Alice Springs and we loved it! Got the red dust out of the caravan and vehicle and after a week back at work looking forward to the next trip, just not sure where to go!

We would like to do the Oodnadatta Track but will probably do this in a couple of years (kids will be older, also would like to do that with another family that wont be able to do that next year). I like the idea of checking out the Flinders Ranges however I'm thinking we'd need to go with someone else (It would be good to go 4wding while we are there, safety in numbers!), what other areas are well worth looking at on and acheivable with young kids on a 3-4 week time frame?

Looking forward to suggestions,

Hi Derm,

travel up to Mildura and on to Wentworth.

From Wentworth go to Menindee Lakes and check them out while they're wet.

Go on to Broken Hill, there's heaps to do there.

Go to Silverton and spend a day.

From Silverton head north and aim for the Dingo Fence, go through Pine View, Morabie and Hawker Gate. Aim for Milparinka and check out Poole's Grave and Depot Glen for a bit of Sturt history.

Go on to Cameron Corner nd stay there to check out the area.

Travel back to Tibooburra and go to White Cliffs to look at this Opal Town.

Head for home through Wilcania, Ivanhoe and Hay.

There's an idea.

How about central QLD - as far as Winton (Lark quarry) then head back toward Emerald, Blackwater down to Theodore Miles and central NSW. Fantastic free camps on waterholes and rivers - some even with hot showers

Hi Derm

Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks are Hwy with big traffic, and you don't need "numbers".
First vehicle in group always win as rest of vehicles don't see much for dust....they are loosers in a group. That's why we stayed for 11years...almost 12years solo drivers.
Ciao Dana

Thanks for the feedback Dana, not so concerned about travelling in numbers on these tracks, more that we have friends who are keen to do it too but can't til 2014, willl think about your comments about the dust though, hadn't considered the vision!

it is not only dust, but even a noise.
Travelers in first vehicle see it all, in second vehicle may catch glimpses of it and rest just have to listen about it.
