1.2 Travel to Ora Banda, site of famous tavern, still operating.

Sadly we said goodbye to Chris and Sue at Ora Banda who headed north wards and the Enrights who needed to get home quickly today.


1.3 Visit old leases worked by Tom Scotland at Kunanalling.

Interesting tour of the leases held by Tom Scotland, and we relocated his mine shaft, first found in the great reconnaissance of October 2012.

1.4 Distance is 100km from the overnight camp to Coolgardie for next refuelling – 520km since departing Laverton.

1.5 Lunch in Coolgardie. Refuel if needed. Return to the bitumen road and drive along Great Eastern Highway to your destination. 560km Coolgardie to Perth.

Final meal together in the green grassy park in Coolgardie.
