any sugestions for june school holidays

Postby Craig4u » Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:10 pm

Hi guys and gals

we have recently ordered a customline CT with delivery in early june .

im looking for ideas for the first camping trip [ 7 - 10 days] where thinking western nsw [ lightning ridge ] as we can do the coast when its warmer.

as we have two kids [7 and 5 ] we would like to take a few days to get to and back from our destination .

i love fishing so a bit of water wouldnt go unnoticed as well .

any sugestions on where we should go ? [ be nice :*** ]

where located in sydney

cheers

Are you planning on staying in a caravan park or freecamp?

Not been to Lightening Ridge but have been to Broken Hill/Silverton and it was great.

Are you planning to stay in LRidge for the whole week?

We are in Central West NSW and we usually head Vic way, have been down the Murray as far as Swan Hill and want to go further towards SA next time, also been to Deniliquin on the river (beautiful) and Abercrombie Caves but not enough to do for a week there though it was stunning and would be absolutely FREEZING in June hols!!!!! ::() also been to Lakes Entrance and Metung and heading to Mallacoota in Oct long weekend for 5 nights.

Its a great forum here with heaps of knowledge. I have found it a great help and someone here will have some info for you.

Any other places you were thinking of?

Hope this helps a little???? :)

hi mate

prefer to free camp but what ever comes along ,and where open to sugestions as we have never been west . all our camping has mainly been coastal .
dosnt have to be lighting ridge . more interested in seeing country we havent been to before . we dream of doing a big outback trip . [ who dosnt lol ]

bourke - wilcannia - white cliffs ??? dont know looking on the maps theres a track from bourke to wilcannia following the darling river that looks good .

i like ur ct x67 looking forward to getting ours thow it is not as big.

Thanks craig, our is only that big to fit three teenage kids in it!!! :*** :***

We would love to do the Darling River Run but won't be for a few years yet.

Have read a few articles on it and one only recently but not sure which mag it was though :cry: It think it was 4wd action one or on the road???

This forum post shows you most of the run and the Darling should look fabulous after all that rain.

These maps were also good as you could just pick which bit you had time to do. http://www.visitoutbacknsw.com/travel-and-touring-australia/outback-driving/the-darling-river-run.html

Hope this helps a bit.

Yeah, I'd concur with xmasbaby, a Darling River Run from Wilcannia to Bourke would be pretty good.

Alternatively Wilcannia, south to Menindee and then onto Mungo.

Plenty of outback NSW for you there.
