    Swan Gully 12/3/16

    Went to Swan Gully yesterday to have a bit of a look around. TL was Grimace and the others were Phil (PMRobin) and me (TimJ). We had a couple of extras in Thomas (friend of Grimace) in a Hilux and Zac who met us at the park in a v8 D1.

    I don't have a lot of photos as when driving alone I tend not to remember the camera. We went for a trip up and around the loop road at the back of the property which in places was quite washed out and required some technical driving. Basically the morning was spent around this road and the descent back down the hill turned out to be very steep with a couple of rock ledges that made things very interesting. With some good spotting though we all made it down and back to the camp are for a bit of lunch.

    Grimace, Thomas and I then went back out and had a bit of a play for a few hours around the creek and the playground area. Some good little climbs that tested the driving skills.

    I then came home as did Thomas and Phil while Grimace stayed for the night.

    All in all a good first look at the layout of the park in it's current format but there is more to be seen and some of it is quite challenging.

    A few pics (Hope that someone else has a couple more) -

    This was the hill coming down.

    A very enjoyable day with some challenging tracks and great company.

    Also a big thanks to Grimace for his excellent spotting!

    Didn't take many photos but did give my new Gopro a workout! Here are a couple of photos of Timj in action. I will try and get some video up once I have worked out how to edit

    Thanks for the report Tim and both of you for the images.

    Same as Tim I didn't even consider taking photos until the end of the day.
