Correct Mic

I assume everyone will have at least 3rd party insurance, it is a gray area being held on public property. However i do not think the need for a PL insurance scheme is necessary for this event.


I there are any musos willing to donate their time and PA gear for entertainment over the weekend that would be awesome.

Currently old.school.hero has put his hand up as the SA Rep

If you are interested in organising a convoy from your state or have ideas on what to do and where to go (Day trips etc) chime in

I've put my hand up, but i want help to :)
my attendence is subject to change with out notice.


I've also done some research;
- its worth dropping in to see Bill at the Corner Pub.
- been advised to stay away from Wilcannia, apparently the locals arent very nice.
- been advised not to try the White Cliffs to Tibboburra road if its wet, its impassable + heavy fines if caught.
- worth a visit to the old Tibooburra Courthouse Museum (free entry), you can find information on tour drive guides, displays and road and weather condition updates are available also.
- it was suggested to stay at Fort Grey campground. DECCW | Sturt National Park - Camping - click the link for more info. apparently fires are not allowed though.
- viarety of things to do Corner Country, NSW, Accommodation, Tours, Events and Hire


map reference:
Regional Map

i was going to upload the map, but its not letting me.

once the old man gets home, ill have a look at mapping from Adelaide to Camerons corner. - he's the mapping guru! haha


some other things Ethan;
- as for PL insurance, i suggest we just make it an informal event.. and every one just "rocks up"
- how are these raffle going to happen? tickets? sponsorship etc?
- be good if we had some muso's about us, if not.. sure there will be a few guys with good stereos.


this is just an idea, you suggested doing a bit of a fund raiser for the RFDS, to make it less complicated, can we make it, the only condition of attending the event is a $20 donation, which 100% of all donations will go to RFDS.


and just a call out, theres quite a few members about, more imput would be good!

I could be up for the trip, i spoke to the wife and she sort of is coming around gives me a few months to convince her that it would be a good trip out and back and a few months to try and get the car to where i want it.

So at this stage me and the missus is a maybe.

OSH has it there mate, don't see the point of that post.

I will be attending, we have been given sufficient notice for times and location, the problem is it may have peaked too early, remember to keep this thread going and hopefully it will either keep it fresh in peoples mind or evolve into something way awesome like a Borneo or N-S Africa trip :D Seriously, i think there is reason for this to evolve but it has to be constructive and I think the dates should be utilized. If someone can come up with a better location and why, there is enough time for it to be organized.

yeh great idea lets go to qld where they has sum of the worst 4wd laws in australia. so it looks like anyone with a lift higher than 2" is out
You are fairly new to 4wding so calm yourself down and see that Corner Country encompasses 3 states so you won't have to go to QLD if you don't want to.

Roddo has put his hand up to be WA rep; good to see

Location and dates are FIRM and while it is early days (Well over a year) as i have said before it gives time for Forumites to prepare and plan for the "Informal Event"

I'm interested in this. If I head 820kms exactly north from my place I'll get there in less than a tank. I hope the Border Track goes all the way to the corner :confused:.

I dont see any reason for needing public liability insurance. It's a group of individuals and families going on a trip and meeting up. Everyone should have their own normal insurance anyway.

i might have a long range tank and some other goodies in by then, so might be well worth a break from work and all that to come up :)

I agree, If there's some musos here on the forum, maybe they could play for shizngiggles rather than paying someone - then there's that part of insurance gone... if it's all informal, then no need for insurance. Everybody boot scoots (if that's your thing) moshes, or waltzes at their own risk...
Thats a good idea. I think it would cost everyone $500 just to get a bunch of muso's out in the middle of nowhere for a week rather than $500 for insurance (professional muso's would have their own P/L anyway)
BTW our club P/L through the association is only $17.50 p/a per membership.

Enough of the Insurance stuff, please :evil: :evil:

For me it is 1441kms each way from Grafton/Stockyard Creek, NSW. I am up for it. Will give me time to add all the goob bits to the Troll. Count me in. Might even latch on with the Southern Qld Boys and Girls.
