Have you ever wanted to experience the desert country written about by the surveyor Len Beadell?
 
Armed with information from within the family, Connie Sue Beadell will give you the true picture of what Len and his road-making crew, the "Gunbarrel Road Construction Party", got up to in the 50's & 60's.
 
Have you ever wondered how it was possible to survive in the desert for months on end with only camels for transport?
Connie's husband Mick will fascinate you with tales of how the early explorers did it and what they discovered.
 
We will show you plants & trees, living creatures and Aboriginal history, things that are missed when schedules are tight.
If you want to learn the correct way to repair a tyre Mick will show you how in detail.
Experience the desert with like-minded people, with the added confidence of support and help should anything go wrong.
