Hi, at this stage we've only got getting there planned.

From home to Port Augusta, then onto Leigh Creek, Lyndhurst, Marree and Birdsville approx 3200 kms.

Coming back via the Simpson Desert track, still working this part out at the moment.

Just a heads up, the 2020 event is now sold out.
"If you're going out there, I'll give you a tip. It's wild and it's rough and you're in for a trip. But once you've gone this far off the track, you won't turn around, and you'll never look back."

Our lockers, who art in the diffs Hallowed be thy name, thy traction come,thy will be done,in mud as it is in rocks,give us this day,our daily tread and forgive us our rollovers…
