    Anne Beadell - Surveyor Generals Corner - Gunbarrel. Sept 2019

    Starting work on trip planning for 2019.

    Off the top of my head (which means, not including the finer details), the trip will be:

    Leave Victoria & head up to Coober Pedy.
    Coober Pedy overland to Laverton WA via Anne Beadell Hwy.
    Turn right at Laverton and up to Warburton.
    Turn off the Great Central Road and onto another road.
    Pick up the Gunbarrel Highway
    Divert slightly north up to Surveyor Generals Corner.
    Back down to Gunbarrel and make our way back to Coober Pedy.

    I'm planning about 3 weeks & expecting lots & lots of corrugations.

    May go solo, may see if anyone wants to come along.

    Any interest out there?
    .. speak up, my hearing isn't what it used to be. It used to be my vision and I can't see what you're saying ..

    I might be a possible (I solo mostly).
    Did part of Anne Beadell 3 weeks ago and Old Gunbarrel and CSR last year but having done it missed some bits I would like to repeat. (High winds meant the drone was grounded and I am still new to flying it)

    Big trip... dunno if 3 weeks is long enough tho.

    Mid year means short travel days and any sort of rush to get from A to B over the corrugations out there is a PIA.

    Sometimes you can't travel thru from S.G. Corner (Wingellina to Mulga Park) so you have to backtrack to the Great Central
    Be aware (if you didn't already know) S.G. Corner is guided tour access only ($100 per car and $25 pp last time I heard) and it depends on availability of guides.

    Sounds like a great trip tho, enjoy.

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Yep, no worries. Still lots of planning to do.

    Here is a handy PDF that is reasonably up to date which I find very handy for planning.
    The info is always changing so needs double checking of course but has all the links etc to appropriate bodies.

    Kudos to Great Beyond for the Doc.

    Hope the attachment works, first time I've tried a pdf...

    That's a great little booklet ET, I don't know why they don't make things like that easily obtainable by the public????

    I haven't done much trip planning yet, I was basing 3 weeks on the Madigan trip we just completed. We went from Mt Dare to Birdsville in 5 days (~720kms) comfortably with anaverage speed of around 25km/h. The Anne Beadell is said to be doable at about twice that speed, but it is about twice as long so I'm guessing that'll even out.

    Then a few days up SG corner, then another 5 back to Coober Pedy.

    Hmmm. Yes we may need more than 3 weeks?
