    74km of stunning Aussie desert in 4 days. Deep sand slowed us down, but the views were unreal – desert Banksia forests, eucalyptus groves, and even a glimpse of a Malleefowl. Day 3 brought a welcome break with a climb to Trig Point for epic panoramic views. Finally, the Wimmera River teemed with birdlife – emus, eagles, the whole show. Be prepared for the sand and bring plenty of water. The rewards are worth it – diverse landscapes, wildflowers in spring, and unforgettable starry skies.
