  • North of Southern Cross in Western Australia is Prado Country.

    Spent Easter out north of Southern Cross Western Australia camping in the bush for 4 days. Great part of WA. Well worth a long weekend or a week if you have the time. Any one wondering what its like, the terrain or general lay of the land, this video may help.

      I had a number of cameras, Panasonic G85, 4 x GoPros, mainly used 2 x Hero 6, one set up like a vlogging setup, and one on a Gimbal, and a Mavic Drone.

            That poor soobie! Haha. Very interesting trip. Vlogging was great. Can I ask how you mounted your recovery tracks to your spare tyre?

              Just mounted them with straps, like the bike tie down ones.

              These ones. I find these great for the roof rack and things like this. Cheap and strong/tight.

                Ok cool. thanks mate. I did similar when I took my family to Fraser Is. But, my tracks covered my rear camera. I see that you didn't do that.
                Cheers.

                  Yeh, just have to have them to one side. If you have them low the rear reversing sensor will always beep in reverse.

                    The last occupant of Diemals was Tony Mcpherson who passed away in 2016. He'd been fighting a battle with DPAW for many years who were trying to remove him and within a few weeks of him passing away they had bulldozed the homestead.

                    Some details are here http://www.george4wd.taskled.com/oz2012.html

                      Great series of videos you have done Justinvv. I was out there in 2015 and the track near the rock pillars was open and a bit gnarly but was still able to be driven down. I took some shots as i came down for posterity.

                          Have a look at the other video for more inspiration, The Woodlines is a great spot, so is the Kennedy Ranges.
