Anyone interested in a "Darling River Run" around late April, 2015?

Post by gloverr on Fri Nov 14, 2014 9:24 pm

Follow in the footsteps of the pioneers who opened up the country by following the rivers in to the interior.
Starting in Wentworth and traveling through Pooncarie, Menindee, Wilcannia and Tilpa to Bourke before following one of the tributaries through Brewarrina, Walget and Narrabri then on through Gannedah to the finish at Tamworth. There is a Greyhound bus service that will carry you and your back back to Melbourne from there.
Lots of flat roads - not too many hills! Plenty of dirt roads so fattish tyres might be the go. A mix of bush and formal campground camping with hotels/motels in most towns along the way.
Around 1400 k's over 3 to 4 weeks.
Contact Ross Glover, if interested.
