TRIP NOW FULL. Leader: Meg McKone. A two week trip with possible extensions, car camping with day walks of varying levels of difficulty. Six nights with a base camp at Billabong Campsite in the beautiful Carnarvon Station Reserve, a Bush Heritage property now largely rehabilitated from pastoral damage, followed by four nights in the spectacular Mount Moffatt Section of Carnarvon NP. I plan to drive home with short stays at Timmallallie NP in the Pilliga and the Warrumbungles to view the spring wildflowers. High clearance 4WDs are essential for access to the Carnarvon Station Reserve, and can be hired from Cunnamulla or Roma. Vehicles of at least AWD Forester-type standard are need for Mt Moffatt. Bookings (for vehicles and campsites) will need to be made many months in advance.
Also on the Coast and Mountain Walkers Program.
Party limit of 12.
