SYDNEY-OUTBACK-WEST COAST (Archived)

THIS BLOG TOPIC HAS BEEN ARCHIVED. NEW BLOG COMMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.


Hey all!

I want to travel for around one month, FROM 7-12 AUGUST TO 7-8 SEPTEMBER. I´m planning to go to the WEST COAST FROM SYDNEY, crossing the OUTBACK. For example, i have thought the next route: Sydney-South Australia (Adelaide, Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre...)-Alice Springs-West Coast (Broome, Shark Bay, Perth...). My return to Sydney would be by plane from Perth. Anyway, it´s only an option. I don´t have an exact idea about the route, so i´m open to others ideas.

In addition, i have thought of participating as helper for 1-2 weeks in a good place as well as using coachsurfing.

So i would like to share my trip with more people and rent a car or caravan (relocation of caravans is a good idea in my opinion). If you want to do a similar trip and you don´t want to go alone, let´s me know please!

About me... I´m 23, from Spain and a nice and friendly guy.

I expect your reply ;)

Hi Leti,  1. Too late in the season to do this trip unless you are very experienced in the outback - too late for the wildflowers and fauna.  2.   The road will be extreemely dusty and rough and raises the probabilite of breakdown possibly 3 fold.  3.  You can experience extreeme heat with its health and survival risks. I've been travelling the outback for 65 years - done about 13 million Klms. as a transport operator and I wouldn't consider it, Suggest next April till very early October generally - does change slightly season to season.   Richard

Hi :)
My name is Leti and I'm from Spain too. I'd love to do that trip but in October or November. What do you think about it?

Hi Jesus,

I'm visiting New South Wales in August, I'm planning to go on a 5 or so day hike either around Sydney or Melbourne (Sydney would work better for me) from the 19.8. to 25.8. I then have a flight back to Europe from Sydney, so I can't do anything bigger than that.

I'm a 28 year old Czech guy, currently finishing my PhD and I also speak some Spanish :-) Most of my hiking experience comes from the Alps and other mountains in central Europe, also some ferratas.

If you're interested, here's my e-mail: machtibor@gmail.com

Hi,  I've planned a trip leaving Melbourne mid to late Aug. travelling via Flinder Ranges S.A., Oodnadatta track to Alice S., out to Uluru, across the Great Central Rd., to Leonora W.A., to Kalbarrie N.P. on the west coast, then down to Perth. I'm in no hurry and want to see all along the way so this part could take 25 days and cost  $600 each for fuel. I would be happy to cover all other normal costs. I have a well decked out campervan so no rental costs or food bill but in exchange I require a good dose of humor and fun together. I have an add. on Gumtree Melbourne rideshare/travel partner with more detail and 3 pics. in Van. If you think this trip might be the one for you, let me know A.S.A.P. so we can sort a few things out. (like your food choices, special requests, needs, desires, etc. etc.)  In any event, enjoy your stay in Australia, this is truely heaven on earth,  Richard
