POSTPONED Victorian Western Deserts – vehicle based trip 11-20 July, limit 8 persons.
This trip is planned to camp, walk and enjoy two of Victoria’s desert parks, Murray Sunset and Little Desert national parks. In Murray Sunset there is a possibility of staying in shearer’s quarters for one or two nights.
Our journey will conclude with a visit to Budj-Bim (Mt Eccles) national park, where we will camp, walk and participate in a guided tour of the indigenous eel traps and hut sites recently recommended for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
AWD or 4WD vehicles are preferred although all camping areas can be reached by 2WD, and their drivers may then be able to be accommodated in the AWD and 4WD’s if we choose to venture along more challenging tracks.
Before deciding if this trip is for you, do look at the Parks Victoria Visitor guides, the UN nomination for Budj-Bim and the Conversation article on the detective work behind the eel traps world heritage bid.
