Victoria / SA Border - Mallee Country Trip to Bendigo for Jeep 75th Anniversary


Victoria Border / Mallee Country Trip - September 2016

As you know, there is going to be a 75th Anniversary of Jeep Show in Bendigo Victoria on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October 2016. If you want to go, you could drive there in a day on the highway. Or you could come with us and spend a week on the trail through the Mallee Country on the Vic / SA border!

I will have a full itinerary at Club meetings from April, and can send a copy to anyone that PMs me with their email address.

In brief the plan is;

Saturday 24 Sept - Sydney to Wagga Wagga - 458km

Sunday 25 Sept - Wagga Wagga to Mildura - 558km

Monday 26 Sept - Mildura to Shearers Quarters and Sunset Crater in Murray Sunset National Park via Old Mail Route - 150km

Tuesday 27 Sept - Shearers Quarters to Murrayville via the Sunset Track and the Pink Lakes - 192km

Wednesday 28 Sept - Murrayville to Red Bluff, Big Desert National Park via the South Aust / Victoria Border Track - 90km

Thursday 29 Sept - Red Bluff to Casuarina Camp, Wyperfeld National Park via Lake Albacutya - 201km

Friday 30 Sept - Casuarina Camp to Bendigo via Snowdrift, Speed, Sea Lake and Charlton - 355km

TOTAL DISTANCE - 2004km

This is a serious 4WD tour. We will be driving on bitumen and D Grade dirt roads, as well as some difficult C or even B Grade dirt and sand tracks. The Border Track is a beautiful run on sand dunes!

Some camping will be in caravan parks with all amenities, some in National Parks camping areas with minimal facilities.

Open to 4WD Jeeps with High and Low Range only. If you have to tow, experienced drivers with proper off-road camper trailers only. A tent or swag makes the driving much easier.

Please consider, and post up on this thread if you are interested. I need to have an idea of numbers fairly soon - the caravan park in Bendigo wants an idea of our numbers by 10 April, and we may have to book soon after, so I will be in touch with anyone interested by email soon. If you would like more information, please PM me with your email address. We could manage up to 10 Jeeps.
