    Aiming for Forbes on the Thursday. Need to confer with Chris and John to decide if one or two day roll. About 680 km so do-able in a day.
    What's your plan??

    Chatting at home and the preference is 2 days driving.. Not as adventurous as we were! Day one would be Tocumwal or better still Narrandera. Couple of Caravan parks.

    As long as I get there for the camel cup I'm happy :) and if it's 1 or 2 days it will be fine with me. Tocumal or Jerilderie was my initial plan for a stop over if required.

    Jerilderie/Narrandera both would be OK. Makes Thursday an easy cruise into Forbes.
    Hi Sam. Watch this space.

    Sounds good to me. Hopefully we can get a few more that are keen and sort out a plan in regards to booking accommodation somewhere

    We're hoping to catch you guys up on Thursday for the cruise into Forbes! We'll watch this space :) Booked on the boat Sunday 20th and hoping to have a couple of days sightseeing in Bendigo and other places on the way up.

    Just looking at Jerilderie:
    Freecamps?
    If you want south of Nerrandera there is Bundure, a roadside free camp about 70 ks south of Nerrandera and 37 ks north of Jerilderie. You do get a few trucks in over night but there is room for everyone.
    North of Nerrandera is the pub at Mirool, about 70 ks north, turn in at the large silos, Grand looking old pub, great meals. Freecamping alongside where there are new free showers and toilets. That would be my choice. Large paddocked area to park.

    Campground?
    Jerilderie Motel and Caravan Park
    Powered Site AUD$27 to AUD$30
    Price Range. Subject to change and availability.
    Shady and grassed drive-through sites, powered and unpowered with access to magnificent amenities.
    Facilities: Shared bathroom, Barbecue.
