Our Trek Itinerary

2021 TREK FROM TEMORA TO BYRON BAY AND RETURN TO DONGARA

The planned reverse trek of the 2000 Steep Point to Byron Bay is hopefully still on track.

Three WA tractors are still in Temora, having been left there in preparation for the 2000 trek which was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid19 restrictions. It is planned that these tractor crews will be joined by 6 tractors and 2 support vehicles from the Eastern States Branch and another 2 tractors and 8 support vehicles from WA for the start of the reversal trek from Byron Bay in July.

For WA and SA participants, the 2021 Trek will commence in Temora, then proceed to Byron Bay to join other Eastern Branch members and travel back to WA via Alice Springs where they will visit the Alice Springs Hall of Fame before the official end of the trek at Steep Point, then concluding in Dongara.

There are proposed plans A and B for the up-and-coming Trek from WA to Alice Springs.  Also Plan C for a trek throughout northern WA if our Byron Bay to Steep Point does not go ahead.
