Part 3 of the Canning Stock Route diary is now online

Due to an overwhelming positive response about the diary so far, we've released Part 3 for your enjoyment and interest. Rather than finish the diary in one huge read, we've split it across Part 3 and 4. Read Part 3 now from Durba to Well 33 and the final chapter Part 4, will be released to you next week.

Have your Say in our New Poll

The first in our new series of Online Polls was launched last night with a real controversial one - the issue we are debating is whether you see advertising agencies are misguiding the public about the 4WD recreation in their media campaigns. This issue goes to the very core of the image and hence reputation that 4WD owners and drivers cop - if you don't think its right, then lets challenge these agencies. What do you think? 

Vote YES or NO to our Poll question. 
You'll find the poll prominently placed in the right margin of every page of the site.
