Track Care has a long association with restoring Narloo Homestead. So this year, Track Care and the Four Wheel Drive Club of WA are jointly planning to visit the former pastoral lease, Narloo Station in the Yalgoo Region (not Gnarloo Station on the coast north of Carnarvon).
What will you need:
Everything as it is a remote location!
There is a drop toilet at Narloo and a non-potable water pump;
But, it is strongly suggested that you take portable toilets and water;
A full tank of fuel plus extra;
One bag of firewood and a camp oven if you have one.
The trip is suitable for caravans.
The trip is still in the planning stage, but it will not be all work. Plenty of interesting activities are already on the horizon such as:
A communal dinner is being planned for Sunday. Please bring a bag of wood and a camp oven if you have one and would like to participate.
Working bee and general clean up around Narloo homestead – so that’s the work bit!;
Surveys of the station tracks to determine suitability for 4WD use;
Austravel Safety Network members will talk about their not-for-profit High Frequency (HF) Radio Club, which provides an affordable recreational HF radio network for its members that can establish vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle to base communications (i.e. radio-telephone). This service can establish verbal communications with anyone connected to an in-service landline or mobile phone.
