If you down load my plot file and run “Track reply control” you will get a feel for the track Plot File

The track out is at max only a 40 km/hr track 2nd high will do, we where plaining to camp out there but found no were to camp so rushed back to find a camp, a little better plaining needed next time (so I hope this helps you).

There are a couple of sand ridges around 6 meters high to climb a k or so from getting to the crater, this is not boggy country but there are some wash aways and detours which are easily negotiated with a good 4WD :)



A good 4WD :ylsmoke:
There are many plaques commemorating person visits over the years

We did the drive and a nice walk around in between 15:02:17 and 16:42:12 and you must remember that I had the crook hip at the time and was right in to walking, so you should allow longer specially if younger one are in the party, as I'm sure they would like the walk to the bottom of the crater.

It is worth the trip out to see it, so I hope you too will enjoy
