There is sand on most of the eastern side of the park Pheeneys is the best and most fun on the bigger bikes Settlement rd the top one the easiest I do recall sand south of Settelment to Rocket lake and sand down to Mopoke hut and out to Hattah as well its all doable with the right tyre pressures and cooler weather.The southern side and I mean all of it is some of the hardest riding I've ever done with the bike fully loaded stay away from the Sunset Trk bloody hard work.My two cents for you guys Loxton Taplan Gate South bore Pheeneys Rocket Lake and head north Lake Cullirane has the only fuel other than Hattah or Mildura and Underbool and Murrayville to the south hope this is of some help Cheers Emu.

I would reccomend a ride across Raak plain to Hattah from Rocket Lake, very scenic ... http://i1342.photobucket.com/albums/...c.jpg~original

Meet you at the bistro at the rear. I'll find you - cheesy grin and glasses right?

I take it Rocket Lake is off to the left on that map pic?

What sort of terrain could we expect there?

Perhaps come down the Arumpo Rd instead of following the Darling, and then this time come back hugging the southern Murray banks from Wentworth and spend a night out there somewhere, then make our way home in a roundabout sort of way from there.

I will confirm later, but the likely date at this stage will be Wed 14th to Sun 18th August.
I would have liked to do this trip but will be in WA on the Canning about then. .Next time.

Thinking of rideing up to Farina on June long weekend , Farina Sat, Anchorichina Sunday, lap of PAR? back home Sun. Aparently might be a few Bikes at Farina for a rally. You in Ozzy, could use some of your tracks past Clare,some back gravel roads to Hawker(through Johnburg) and if time, along the railway to Parachilna.

For anyone interested,

Masterbrewer and I are meeting at the Tonsley Hotel (1274 South Rd, Clovelly Park) this Friday @ 17:30, in the bistro at rear, for a bite'n'beer , and to chat over Murray-Sunset NP, amongst other things.

If you're free, and want to catch up, you're more than welcome. Might be an idea to PM me if you are coming - if there's more than a handful for dinner I might need to book a table.

Hope to see you there.
