Hi Rod. Very interesting trip by the look of it. Are any of the main gravel roads in the area (e.g Bullfinch - Evanston) closed or are they open to the general public?

In that link above, scroll down to the entry about the sandalwood cutting operation.

I've heard some very "interesting" stories about sandalwood cutting in that area under the auspices of a govt department.

Use Whereis maps or Google Maps. It is about 500km. It is not out in the back of beyond or such and there are a lot of towns and roads around.

Hi Mike

Depends which way you want to go, how adventurous you are and how much time you have on your hands.

You can follow the sealed road Koorda-Bullfinch Rd to Bencubbin then the Beacon-Bencubbin Rd to Beacon and then west to you get to Mouroubra Rd.

Mouroubra Rd is a good gravel road that takes you direct to Paynes Find.

This route is not isolated should you run into difficulties.

My last trip out to the north east wheatbelt involved camping at and exploring some wonderful granite rock outcrops in the general area between Bullfinch and Beacon.

Here is my blog entry:

Granite Loop Trail

As others have said, Maroubra Rd is a good outback road.

I'm not sure if Paynes Find has re-opened for fuel etc, I doubt it, but others may know.
