Would like to go out Mungo too one day
What's the track like heading north from Rocket Lake up to the Sturt HWY?

Last time, we went into Murray Sunset on the Carwarp Rd, I see Pheenys track runs parallel but south of that track.

When she came back she asked where the pastie was as it had left the counter.....I said that it was so good I'd better have another one!!!! I got another one on the way home too!!
By my bakery standards I thought those pasties were small, but tasted good.

Haven't done that one, we used to go to Hattah then ride up the rail line to Mildura when we went to Pooncarrie, Rocket lake to Hattah is very scenic across the Raak plain and easy ride too.

A good time to go is when the Top Hut Rally is on, if it is on again (poor turnout last year) more people stayed back in Pooncarie (pub is there).
Last 2 years I did lap out at Mungo on the Saturday, with one other 1st year and on own second.

North out of Rocket lake there is a sandy 4WD track and a wooped out single track.

Thanks for those Kym, looks like the big girl should do ok - might be a bit of work in spots (i.e. must pack the winch ). Will start looking at ways to get to the start of Pheeny's from Adelaide - open to suggestions.

G'Day Marty - good to see you're looking in fine form again on Trev's trip - I take it life gall-bladder free is pretty good
Unfortunately, when the Top Hut rally is on, it's usually a bad time of the year for me to get away, so have to get there in my own time.

MB's RR's of the Rocket Lake tracks definitely concur with your comments!

As a general rule the further south you go in Murray sunset the worse the sand seems to get.

"As a general rule" that does seem to be the consensus.

I just saw some tall bloke on Adelaide Road on a Tiger posing to be an adventure rider. Anyone know who he is? He looked as proud as punch.

Some very amateur video from Robertstown.
But you get an idea how good this joint is
