Now to get back to caravanning - next week after our training course with Great Divide Adventures (Vic Widman) we are heading for Menindee through the back roads. Anyone been there? Any suggestions?

Jay, they have great wood for fires there, but just be careful where you light them. We had a fire with lots of nice coals going on the river bank a few years back and the ranger came and ordered us to put it out. It was so hot that it took about a dozen buckets of water to put it out and he stood and watched while we did it.

With the drought it may be a bit dry and dusty in that area, but the roads won't be a problem for a Bushtracker..

Good luck with the training course. It will be interesting to see your reports on the training.

Travelled through the area in early August 2004. Stayed on black-top as I don't have a Bushtracker (yes, I am jealous). Quite a few campsites along River Road in Kinchega N/P south of Menindee; the black soil can be very sticky after rain and yes the Rangers are active. Lake Menindee was bone dry and the Darling was very low. If considering a caravan park, take care; nice locations but advise you do a quick walk through the C/P first. Not sure of your route, but Mungo and Mutawinjti N/P's are sensational.
