G'day everyone, this trip now has 8 definite participants, 2 definite maybe's and 1 standby definite maybe.

Which means the trip is currently full but don't be disheartened, register your interest and be added to the standby list and then if someone drops out, you can be slotted in.

If there is enough interest I'd be happy to assist organising a second instance of this trip for another group.

 :cheers:
Craig

UPDATE:  I have been discussing with the Marketing Ladies on a way to keep the original dates and they are doing everything they can to facilitate that, to date I'm still waiting for a final response from them and will let you know as soon as I do but I don't expect that response until Monday.

UPDATE:

Moving 2 weeks left meant we lost 2 vehicles from our group, so to keep them in, I've been able to keep close to the original dates but it shortens our time on the Island.

New on Island dates 23rd 27th June 2021 locked in 4 nights 5 days.

Dirk Hartog Island cost is $710 for 2 adults, $645 for 1 adult.

Options:
  • Everyone meet at Steep Point on the 23rd to travel over to DHI
  • Camp our way as a group up to Steep Point

Option 1 is self explanatory.
Option 2 requires input from everyone to determine where we go  >:D

Please let me know if you're still in and what you'd like to do.

New possible itinerary  ???

I'm in!!  That's a shame we lose island time!! But on the other hand I'm glad we can accommodate & keep the OG!
Maybe just mosiey up at a snails pace checking out places like Moore River? Coronation Beach? Spend abit more time exploring steep point surrounds?
Just my thoughts!

the Maximum combined length of 4WD & Trailer is 10.6m, this restriction is in place because anything longer will not fit on the barge.
