The following is not a Border bushwalking event, but we bring it to members attention for your interest.

We are planning a trip along the Canning Stock Route in WA commencing on Saturday 21st May and returning on or around Friday 1st of July. A few of us long term friends have been talking about this trip for many years are going to make it happen. We plan to take 4×4 utes and some motorbikes and spend 3 weeks travelling South to North on the Canning Stock Route. From the end we will decide to go home via Perth, head to Broome and Darwin or go out via Alice Springs. A few options as we see how we are going. There are a number of exit points for those who wish to leave before the full five weeks however this is an opportunity to see outback Australia at its best. We have nearly all the gear ready to go and a few spare seats if individuals are interested or if other vehicles are wishing to join us. We are a mature group of adults and plan to drive no longer than 6 hours a day. This is an extended trip with some pretty rough country and people need to be comfortable with the extent of the travel possibly 10,000km and living in close quarters with others. We have a briefing paper to explain our planning and general information, for those who are interested please contact David Findlay on 0457 567 250 for a discussion. Final time for interest must be May 1st.
