we are thinking about a weekend stay at Bendleby Station on 11th August until 15th August on the start of a 3 month touring trip.
Before Covid I was starting to plan a SA annual meet there, this would not be an official Earth meet but people would be more than welcome to join us for a weekend of 4wding camping and chilling out at a awesome station stay.
Have a look and post any interest as booking will need to be made, shouldn't be to busy as it is before school holidays and we will be doing remote camping

Looks a nice place, no idea where we will be then so will see how we go
2nd best station I have ever visited , Lorrella Springs being number 1, the contrast between the 2 mountain ranges on the property is staggering, the 4wding and bush walking is brilliant.

Hey Matt, I’d be keen to join for a few nights (depending on work it may not be all 4). Be good to catch up again and do a few SA tracks.

Hi Matt. What's the plan for those that decide to join? We call up Bendleby, mention we're part of your group, book in / pay deposit, and they'll end up picking a location based on how many cars the group size gets to?

Is it arriving on the 12th and leaving on the 16th (4 nights)?

We have booked remote for us and friends we are traveling with for the trip, people can ring and book anywhere they want , feel free to drop my name to get a camp that is not to far away, not sure how far apart all the bush camps are, we have a old map from when we were there in 2015 and are camping at camp 6 camp name is Sollys, there are a few camps not far away
Yes we are arriving on the 12th leaving 16th.
Our booked site is only big enough for us and our traveling companions so it will not be a big group camp as such but of coarse all are welcome for drives , drinks and fire banter

So disappointed, just seen this. Kazz n I were thinking about Bendleby in October (when its a bit warmer) Never been there. Done the Argadells twice, looking for something different. At the same time we are not that adventurous, just like getting off the tar..

We have now left Bendleby , at Willow Springs.
the 4wding at Bendleby was great, did 3 days worth , both sides of the station were fantastic, Bendleby Ranges was mostly very easy with great views a few walks and pretty green, the Hungary Rangers offered some harder tracks with some challenging 4wding where picking the right line , plenty of experience and a capable 4wd Is essential.
A station stay I will do again and highly recommend
