Trip Summary

Easy/Medium - For both beginners and experienced drivers. You may tackle some tracks with steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy sections.

As promised we will repeat our photography and 4wd trip over the Easter weekend.

Meeting up on Good Friday in Ararat at 9.30 am at McDonalds. Then we will travel along the iconic Silo art Trail, stopping and spending time taking pictures and flying with a drone at each silo.

At Hopetoun we will decide if we make our way to our first camp, Lake Albacutya( Western Beach ,this has toilets and cold showers). or that we have time enough to push through to Patchewollock( last silo) and from their back to Lake Albacutya camp.

Saturday: We aim to leave camp at 9.30-10.00 to explore the Big Desert. We will make camp in Murray - Sunset NP, Lake Crosbie campground and stay here for 2 nights

Sunday: exploring the Pink Lakes and 4 wd tracks .We will have a group discussion if we want to  do more driving, walking or photography

Monday: Making our way back to Melbourne.

Our main aim for this trip is to combine 4wdriving with some photography!
