    The trip is designed to allow multiple nights in camp locations to avoid daily pack-ups.

    In Tibooburra it is planned to drive the lovely Gorge Loop Road, and to visit Camerons Corner.

    After Tibooburra there will be a visit to White Cliffs and then on to Mutawintji NP. At the NP we will have the opportunity to explore the beautiful park and also to join with an accredited tour to visit the incredible Aboriginal Historic Site, used for initiation ceremonies for thousands of years, and where rock art dating back the same time is on view. (There will be a charge for this but it is the only way to gain access to the Historic Sites)

    There will be a two night stay in Broken Hill allowing a visit to mining exhibits or a trip to Silverton and a possible beer at the famous pub.

    After Broken Hill we will drive via Menindee to Inavhoe and finish in Condobolin with an easy drive back to Sydney or allowing further travel to southern NSW.

    Here’s the blurb…

    For those of you who aren’t able to make it to the Big Red Bash next year, fear not, John Williamson is coming to us for his 50th anniversary tour. The show also happens to be the same week as Steve’s 40th birthday, so there may well be dinner and a few drinks beforehand… although not too many as it’s a driver training weekend the day after!

    JOHN WILLIAMSON 

    "WINDING BACK" - CELEBRATING 50 YEARS 

    Hornsby RSL, Friday 21st August, show starts 7.30pm

    $56 for adults, $32 for 14 and under

    The year 2020 will see Australian music icon John Williamson celebrate his 75th birthday, his 50th Anniversary in the entertainment industry and also a final big year on the road.

    It was 1970 when John released his first song, 'Old Man Emu' which kick started a five-decade career crafting out some of Australia's unofficial anthems, tender ballads and songs that captured the outback landscape and the people of the country. He has toured the country like few others selling over 5 million albums along the way and was recognized by being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.

    With all that he has achieved, his combined milestones in 2020 will also have John officially announcing that 2020 will be his last major year of touring.

    2020 will be John Williamson's 'Winding Back' tour. John is hesitant to say he's retiring, but acknowledges he won't continue the regular touring he's done consistently during his enduring career. 'I think I've spent more time in airport lounges and travelling highways than most and I'm looking forward to winding back and tending to my garden. I'll still perform at major festivals, but 2020 is about saying goodbye to a lot of the towns I've visited almost annually in the past fifty years.' 

    Perhaps John's greatest legacy is making Australians proud of their country; of who they are. 

    Mallee Boy, True Blue, Fair Dinkum, or whatever you call him, there is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as he does and 2020 could be the final time you get to experience his inspiring concert in your town or city.

    This is a call for EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST ONLY at this stage for a club trip to Namibia, Botswana,
    Zimbabwe in May/June 2021.  It will be a fully escorted and guided trip with Self Drive Adventures, and will be a rerun of the club trips of 2014/2015 to these fabulous areas.  Duration will be approx 31 days.  Starting in Windhoek Namibia, the trip winds through the wetlands of Botswana's Okavango Delta taking in the national parks of Moremi, Chobe, Etosha transiting through Namibia's northern Caprivi Strip for a short excursion to Zimbabwe and the famous Victoria Falls before heading West through the canyons, deserts and badlands of Namibia before encountering the Skeleton Coast and the windswept Atlantic Ocean, and returning via the German influenced town of Swakopmund to Windhoek.
    Expect to see more big game than you could possibly imagine, and up close, really close.  No really really close !  Elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, hippos, rhinos, ostriches, water buffalo, more antelopes than you can name, hyenas, jackals, maybe a leopard or two, plus birds galore.  Plus cultural experiences with the San people of the Kalahari desert, Himba tribespeople and other highlights.  The majority of the trip will be bush camping and self catering, although a few lodges and hotels along the way add variety and the chance for a welcome shower.



       
    Meet 

    Windhoek Namibia ( 2 hours flight from Johannesburg South Africa)

    This is a call for EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST ONLY.  It's nearly two years away, so there is plenty of time to plan, but expect to put down a deposit early in 2020 to secure a spot as these trips do book out.  Due to the abundance of wildlife and the fact that we are bush camping in some spots in game areas, any kids must be aged 14 or over.
