Maybe I can go on my own, in June?
I did a trip there in 2015 when we did Flinders, Arcaroola , Oodnadatta trk, Delhousie, MtDare and home. Awesome station stay with great 4wding, hiking and views to die for. Well worth a visit and we will head back there at some stage, maybe SA gathering 2021

I'm heading off to do the Border Tk with a bloke from work in a few weeks, been too long since having a night under the canvas.
What's the deal with heading into Red Bluff seeing as it's in Vic? Border still shut here in SA?

Its an odd one that one, guess technically if you go to red bluff you would need to isolate when you get home (if before July 20th)
but its stupid because its only accessible from SA...
Did see mentions of a cop giving people trouble coming back from red bluff on FB but how true that is who knows.
if camping in SA book ahead, seems like the campsites are all selling out early

It's a tricky one hey. Heading up in first week of school holidays. I don't suppose there'd be any issues going in and out, if there is I'll head down further and camp just over that next huge dune, the last one before all the big holes start, or head back to Doggers Hut, not a bad little spot
Anyone else heading out that way or keen, would be good to have a few more along

You should start a new thread with dates in it. Few people may tag along

Yeah might do, I know a few people read this one too. Will be doing it mid week, so unsure whether people will be keen.
I flicked an email to the Parks mob regarding Red Bluff, the reply was to not enter it under any circumstances as we would need to isolate for 14 days. They said Border Tk is open to SA residents only and not to cross into Vic. From memory of past trips, there's a few spots that dart off into Vic off the Border Tk. Would be a pain in the ass if the coppers did seemingly pop into the camp while your all set up.
Would love to go for an explore of Big Desert again some time soon, but hey, will have to wait I guess.

Safest of option would be to sit tight

Nup, need a few nights under the canvas, and we are free to roam here in SA. plan is to drive up to Pinaroo, down the Border Tk to The Gums campground (never even knew it was there) then second day finish her off and head over to the other side of the park down South Boundary Tk up another one and either to Bucks Camp or Box Flat, I've stayed at both a couple of times, great campgrounds and usually noone around

Yea sounds like a good plan just book ahead for the gums campsite - iv had a look a few times and all the sites on the border track are booked solid

The whole pay ahead for the campsite thing is a pain, I mean, how many times have you rocked up, realised you wanna go further for the day, or the site is shithouse or packed. If ya rock up, you've paid and it's packed, what are your options? It's a shit idea.
Was better when it was pay to be in the park form the night, done.

Totally agree, mostly dont end up camping in places like that anymore

Googs track is the same, all camping by permit only but website only offers googs lake as the only choice of camping but thats not realistic as its a 2 night trip...paid 2 nights at googs lake but camped elsewhere one of the nights.
