    I can only assume someone did a cull and threw the bodies in the ruins , only ruins that never had at least one dead one in it was the one across the creek the old homestead that had the big veggie garden and owned the spring .

    Good to see you had a great time Jack. Itís such a beautiful area.
    i was there about three weeks ago for a weekend. Flew in to Adelaide and drove up with some mates. Just did the bush walk up to the top of Wilpena pound and to the Sacred Canyon. Camped, drank beer, ate emu/roo/camel at Parachilna.

    The only thing that could have made it better would have been to stay longer.

    Good to hear, I’m not into walking (well my wife isn’t) so didn’t get to explore to much of Wilpena. Remember you telling me about Skytrek and Moxans Hut, got a picture of the Nissan Patrol Club sign I’ll post up when I get on the pc.
    Cheers

    Yeah, it was pretty hard on the old knees. It was a lot easier 25 years ago when I last did it.
    Thereís still a bit of work to be done on the side walls of the old hut. The club needs to get back there one day.

    For Rock Trol

    Hard to believe they had 7 inches of rain there, that would have made an impressive flow in the creeks (once the plains were visible again).

    Looks like they were back in 2015.



    Had a beer in there for you as well.

    We did drive through Nepabunna but didn't stop, don't recall any signs mentioning Big Moro.

    The front part was first restored in 1993. I was with the club in 2015 when we rebuilt the rear wall. The two side walls will also need changing out in the future. We used hand tools like saws, axes and mallets to split and shape the native pine. It was bloody hard wood.

    What did the beer taste like Jack?
    Warm I guess.
