After driving from Melbourne the bitumen pretty well stops just after Patchewollock. We stopped at Patchewollock friendly local store for supplies and fuel, before heading into Casuarina campgrounds which was well sign posted. We had many campsites to choose from as we were the only ones there! Once our campertrailer was set up we headed off in our Pajero for a couple of the local tracks. We found ourselves on North Callitris Track which has a couple of easy sandy hill climbs. This track opens onto Callitris clearing (open plains), and proceeded to turn left onto Moonah Track. Had a couple of emus dart across in front of us. Moonah track is also sandy but easy enough to get through without getting stuck. This track links up to Eagle track (now heading south) which we found we were only going 40kph due to deep soft sand, and many corrugations. Eagle track continues south and links up with Ginap Track but the gates are locked! Not deterred we continued south onto the aptly named North/South Track. Lots more sand for another 6kms or more. We decided to turn around at this point and head back to camp.
Next day we headed out on the same tracks, but found more vehicle tracks (obviously we were not alone). The tracks had become more boggier, which made for more challenging driving. We drove all the way down to Dattuck Track to Wonga campgrounds near the main entrance to the park. Here we had lunch and toilet stop, and a look around the Information Centre before heading back up to Casuarina the same way, as all other tracks south of Casuarina are closed. The next day we drove out to Wool track which leads onto Outlet Creek Track, Jenkins track , Racecourse track, Gunners Track, Millers Track and Wirregren Plain Track. Most of these tracks are flat, open plains and dry creek beds. Mallee scrub, redgums and a lot of wildlife was viewed. The following day we drove out to Wirregren Plain Track again and stopped at Snowdrift picnic area. Pity we weren’t allowed to drive up this amazing sand dune!! Further north on this track is O’Sullivans Lookout. This provides an amazing view over most of the park for many kilometres. A great stay and highly recommended.
