I've attached a comment that was on the Googs FB Page for u to make your decision as in regards to panel damage. One of our Party (the person out front leading) got some serious panel damage with a stick that he didn't see or feel hit his passengers side and run all the way down to the rear of the car. It dented his panels all the way to the rear - not good and he was not happy either, so keep this in mind as I don't know what you drive...What a ripper trip Rob. Some great pics there and the weather looked nice most of the time.
Jellabinna Rocks are on my bucket list. I was planning to go there last September on a trip including Tarcoola and down to Fowlers Bay. but.....
How long is the drive from Googs track to the rocks and what is the track like, especially as you get closer to the rocks. Should I expect it to scratch that crap out of my car and camper? I was planning on about 5 - 6 hours of driving each way and camping in there as you did does that sound about right? One of the last places you can be pretty sure you won't see anyone else.
Also there are tons of criss-cross tracks through there, some appear to go across to the Oldea track and some up to the railway. Did they look serviceable? I don't think some of them have been used for 40 - 50 years from what I can see. I'd be interested in your observations.
Thanks in advance.
From the T/O into Jellabinna Rock: (100kms / Driving Time:4h36m / Avg Speed:21.8kph)
From Jellabinna Rock out to Googs via Yellabinna Rock (114kms / Driving Time:5h13m / Avg Speed:21.9kph)

The way we went in was slightly different to the way we came out. The way in was less used than the way out. I had marked via Satelite before leaving all the side tracks that I could see and when we were there, very few of them actually existed. Didn't really see any tracks north of the Jellabinna Rocks either but didn't really look that hard either.
The track is heavily wooded with low lying branches - I nearly lost the 2 jerrys that I had on my roof. It is a beautiful spot and peaceful and is quite different to other desert areas..
