G'day all,

Found this site when looking round for some offroad/outback stuff.

Looks good.

My wife and I are retired in our early 60s and have been out and about in ths great country of ours for years.

Large tent camping with the kids many years ago, then when they were off our hands we graduated to offroad camping trailers and saw quite a bit of the far north Queensland Outback.

From there we did the caravan thing, but as there are just far too many on the road these days we sold and then went to stopping in onsite CP cabins as we travelled around.

Now we have the urge to get "down and dirty" again and are looking at another 4X4 and off road camper trailer - probably a Kimberley Kamper or similar.

Trips on the agenda include the Kimberley [Gibb River and Mitchell Plateau], Tanami, across the top, and a few other places.

In the next year or so we want to get as far into the outback as we can - miles away from Coles, Woolworths, McDonalds, KFC and all the rubbish associated with that style of living. :grin:

Looking forward to some pleasant reading as we check this site out.
Enjoy the bush

Welcome Dennis. We've just done the GRR including up to Mitchell Falls and it was great. We left our wind-up camper at Drysdale Station for the run up to Mitchell Falls but there were some KK's and other offroad camper-trailers in the campgrounds. Pretty bumpy (corregated) road though.

G'day Dennis and welcome to the forums! :?#

We actually have two camper trailers ... one is the tent style (which I might sell) and the other is a Jayco OUtback eagle which handles dirt roads fairly well ... although sand dunes are an issue ... ::()

Good luck with your CT hunting!

Hi Dennis, welcome. We have been to the Kimberley absolutely spectacular hope to go back sometime. We did the Tanami, unfortunately 1000km of scrub and nothing else. Happy camping wherever you go!!
