This area has been established to provide an area where members can publish details of trips that they are planning to undertake, and invite others to join them. It may be especially useful when travelling into very remote areas where it is always safer to travel in a group in case of problems. Just getting bogged and not having communications could spell disarster in some remote areas of Australia. Brian

Hi Brian (and others), I would love to see a replica of the Marree to Birdsville mail run sometime in 2004 to experience the journey undertaken by Tom Kruse from the early days. Has this been undertaken by BTs before? For more info, see:http://www.lastmailfrombirdsville.com/lmfb_kruse.cfm Cheers, Mike.

Hi every one, We are intending to be in the Birdsville area towards the end of October 2003. Timing is a bit vague yet as we are doing a bit a TLC on the rig in Brisbane. We hope to leave the end of this month and make our way out via Winton-Quilpie doing a bit of opal fossiking on the way. John

Dear Mike

Just read your message regarding the Birdsville Track. We just completed the track from Maree to Birdsville with an overnight stay along the way.

There are a number of interesting sites along the way such as a number of ruins.

We would probably advise that it is starting to get very hot out there by the end of October early November. We were the only ones in the caravan park during the 3 days at Birdsville. The owners of the caravan park had actually left for summer and a caretaker person was looking after the place in their absence. Most of the attractions in the town were shut down for the summer and really the only place open of interest was the Hotel. It would probably be better if you went earlier in the year.

We enjoyed the trip except for the heat so we hi tailed it out of there and travelled to Innaminka via Walkers Crossing. It was very hot at Innaminka also so we headed back across to the Sunshine Coast for a bit of relief and it rained for the full week we were there.

Hope you enjoy your trip.

John
