Rattler Run III – 2017
Wongawallan to Alice Springs via the Central Deserts, Cairns to Cooktown via the CREB track, returning to Wongawallan.
August 2017 saw Rod and a handpicked team take on a round trip of over 7,000 kms, estimated to take 20 days, that would once again challenge all involved not just the car!
The biggest challenge will be driving through the deserts including Simpson Desert, Little and Big Red.
Once the team arrives in North Queensland, they will visit Rod’s good friend Sia Hok Kiang’s Copper Mine before moving onto Cairns and the CREB…
Originally the service access trail for the old Cairns Regional Electricity Board (CREB), the CREB Track is one of the country’s most challenging four-wheel-drive adventures, traversing spectacular World Heritage-listed rainforest as it weaves its way north from Daintree village to the Aboriginal community of Wujal Wujal and on to Cooktown. But take note: this is a rough and ready track, suitable for experienced 4WD drivers only. A speed of between 15 and 20kmh is advised.
Does Rod know how to go that slow???
