Outback Australia Fly away 2014

Post by Robin » Mon Nov 18, 2013 10:58 am

Hello

We are all pretty busy...so planning way ahead.

Thinking about next year’s fly away to Louth Country Race meeting. See http://www.louthraces.com The date is yet to be finalised but will be in August, 2014.

This is apparently a good event, and nearby farms etc organise accommodation and pick up from the airport and take you to the races. Written up by Shelley Ross from Australian Flying Magazine as a real experience. http://www.flyingtheoutback.com.au/louth_races

Louth is back of Bourke on the way to Wilcannia, so we can then plan to do more of an outback trip as well, or if pressed for time you can just do the race weekend.

After the race weekend I am keen to head to Coober Pedy http://www.cooberpedy.com, Uluru http://www.environment.gov.au/topics/na ... ional-park then Kings Canyon http://www.kingscreekstation.com.au

Please let me know if you have any interest in joining us, even just for the race weekend or a longer outback trip!

Safe flying!

Hi Robin,

I may have some interest in some or all of this trip - although currently hoping to do WA earlier in the year, so I may be "all flyed out" by August! I'd be interested in the details once you've got them.

Hi Greg

Good to hear from you... Yet to get the final dates for the Louth Races.

Hope you will be able to join us.

Would love to fly to WA, maybe up to Broome. If you ever get down to Melbourne, give us a call.

Safe flying

Robin
