Day 1 – Saturday, 2nd October
We leave Ceduna and pass through 'Lone Oak' and on to the iconic Goog’s Track. Time to drop our tyre pressures as we start to make our way north and east over 400 sand dunes. We lunch at Googs Waterhole before visiting Goog's Lake and then we leave the track and head east on through to Nalara Rock, to set up camp and have a Happy Hour and enjoy the serenity of this magic spot!
Day 2 – Sunday, 3rd October
From our camp at Nalara rock we make our way back with a brief stop at Goog's Lake for lunch and then back on to Goog's Track and northwards to camp near Mt. Finke and have another Happy Hour and enjoy dinner under in our million star restaurant (campsite)!
Day 3 – Monday, 4th October
A morning climb of Mt Finke (for those who wish to) and then we tackle the soft sand dunes to complete the Goog’s as we head to Malbooma Siding on the Trans Continental Railway line, before heading east through the now (almost) ghost town of Tarcoola and on to Kingoonya to enjoy a great meal at the pub and a lovely hot shower at the campground.
Note - You can have a Motel room (with shared bathroom facilities) at the Kingoonya Hotel if you'd prefer, for an additional expense. We can pre-book this for you - POA.
Day 4 – Tuesday, 5th October
After a relaxed morning we say goodbye to those leaving us to venture elsewhere. We then leave Kingoonya and head east to Glendambo for fuel top ups and then head south to Lake Hart, Pimba and on to Port Augusta and home.
