Holland Track trip report & Photos

Unread post by BFT RANGER » September 28th, 2010, 6:38 pm

The WA Forum trip on the Queen's birthday long weekend was attended by 7 vehicles made up with 1 x 70 Series Crusier, 2 x BT50's and 3 x Ranger's.
All except Biggswah travelled to Hyden on Friday and were booked in to the Wave Rock Caravan Park.
For those who plain on doing this trip on the same long weekend DON"T book into the the same Caravan park.
As there was to be a music festival there on the Saturday night the Roadies in there wisdom decided to erect and set up the stage and marquie etc untill 4am Saturday morning. So after only a couple of hours sleep we packed up and returned into Hyden to meet up with Biggswah (Ben) and his daughter Summer as well as Lynsey and family.A quick Top up with Fuel and a stop at the bakery before heading on out to the start of the Holland Track.

I'll let the photos talk from here.


Packing up camp at the caravan park after very little sleep.

Who said that he just wanted to test out his winch so He got bogged only to be snatched out by Rolly in His BT50.

The trip was great with great weather and plenty of ribbing over the UHF.
The Camper Trailer was a camper trailer from Traveller RV and had a king size bed so was wider than the Ranger and came into a few issue's with the width and being a bolted together trailer and sold as a Off Road trailer which it wasn't.

Nice photos. Looks like you guys had a great time. I did that track about a year (or 2?) ago and had a lot of fun! I take it that the track wasn't overly wet?

Looks like the track was pretty dry then. We did this at the beginning of the year and it took us 4hrs to get from the turn off off the norseman-hyden road to Mt Holland and then another hour to drive the next 10kms before we camped.
