I could be persuaded to make a couple of copies, if anyone is interested in seeing how it all was in the beginning.
Please put me down for buying a copy as well

I will do 10 copies, so the first 10 people to PM me their name and address, will get one posted gratis...(if anyone competed, or had a relative compete in the 1985 event, I will make an exception to the 10 only rule)

Edit, I have 10

Sorry guys

Just stumbled on this thread.

I just screwed up my Photobucket account, but I was going to post a pic of a very dear friend of mine from the Wynns Safari. Some might remember Him, Glen Middleton from Wellington NSW. He's no longer with us now, but if I remember right, before His passing, He was THE only rider ever to complete every Safari He entered. Oh and His good mate, Flash Farley on his trusty KLR650, with the full stock horse saddle for a seat!!!

Top bloke, but He left us too soon.

Whoops, just sorted it !!!!

Here is a 1984 media release for the Melbourne to Darwin Safari.




This sort of information created a bit of excitement so we decided to build this -
