    Easter trip to Bendethra

    Just duplicating the post from our old website.

    Anyone interested in an Easter trip this year? I was thinking either Deua or Brindabellas for a couple of days.

    Let me know your thoughts and I'm happy to get the ball rolling.

    Antendees:

    4WDING (Graham, Sarah, Jack) - Big Hole - 3 Bunnies
    Berg (Nick + other cruisers) - Bendethra
    Demented (Chris + Helena) - Big Hole - 4 Bunnies
    Riffa (James) - Big Hole - 3 Bunnies
    Frank Jr (Jez + Gillian) - Big Hole - 3 Bunnies
    Drugdependent - (Maurice + Alex) - Big Hole

    Ok guys, here are the details for our Easter Trip.

    I plan on going in to Bendethra from the West this time. We will meet up at "The Big Hole" around lunch time on Friday 29th March (Good Friday). We will leave "The Big Hole" car park at 1:00pm and head into Bendethra Valley. "The Big Hole" is off Cooma road, which you get to via Braidwood.

    On Saturday, we will attempt to do the loop road around the top of the valley, if we rise from our restfull campsite in time

    On Sunday we will make our way out of the valley to the East, and across The Deua River and back out onto The Araluen road. From here you can head north back via Braidwood, or south and out via Moruya.

    Of course, the plan is flexible and you can modify it to suit your own ability and requirements.

    The trip is suitable for all levels of modification, including stock standard vehicles.

    Our camping area at Bendethra will have the bare minimal services, which include a long drop toilet – and thats it. There is a lovely river there if you need extra water, but otherwise you will need to be completely self sufficient.

    You can find more details of the location on the following thread, as we were there in June 2012 (yes that long ago!)

    There is information regarding "The Big Hole" on the national parks site here:

    Count me in 4WDING for the Friday and Saturday.

    I will need to head home late Saturday afternoon so I should be right to do the loop road before heading back.

    Cheers

    I have been checking this thread for a while but haven't posted in case we couldn't make it. We are currently traveling the east coast from WA and looks like we will be around this area next weekend so count me in. Should get us way from the Easter crowds too - after 3 months hanging out at empty beaches any more then 3 people around and we start to freak out

    We have a caravan in tow but will find somewhere to dump this for the weekend.

    Looking forward to meeting you guys and to some wheeling.

    Jez (and Gillian)

    Your parents are lucky - Moruya is one of my favourite places.

    Thanks Berg that would be awesome. I was eyeing off Moruya as somewhere to leave the van. We are currently at Mimosa Rocks NP (beautiful spot) so will slowly make our way to Moruya for next Friday.
