We are planning a Simpson Trip for later this year and the first thing on my list is to buy a sand flag.
Seriously - buy one.

I am heading off on almost the same route on 8th July, tracking down from Brisbane, through Moree, Nyngan, Broken Hill and up to the Flinders (6 nights there) and then on up to Mount Dare and "hopefully" all the way across to Birdsville.....just have to hope the water is gone by then.

Loved the photo's, so thanks for sharing.

And YES I have a sand flag

We are heading off on the 8th July as well...looks like we shouldn't have too much trouble at all by then.

Let's hope so mate...the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service still have the Simpson closed, next review 8th July....we won't go across until about the 20th of July so fingers crossed.....we have a Plan B.....half way over, stay a few days, back to Mount Dare...on to Alice for a few days and then the Plenty Highway over to Boulia, Diamantina National Park...down to Birdsville (and then at least out to Big Red) and home......anyway as I say fingers crossed.

Awesome pics mate, looks like you had an awesome trip. Those cruisers are some of the best I have ever seen, particularly that white 80 and the 100 series that was there. I can't wait to do the Simpson one day. :D
