These roads are all good and more scenic than your intended route.
Pandappa was on the route only cause I hadn't been there before, but now it looks like we'll bypass it. Thanks for the heads up on that one.
Yeah, I hadn't forgotten the gates on Mongolata Rd!
Seeing as we're likely to have dinner at Burra, it'll be dark heading up to Caroona
, so I figured we'll take the easy option and just head up the Caroona Rd to the eastern entrance on the Friday night, and head out via the western entrance on the Sat morning. Plan B will be to stay at the old school house at Mt. Bryan East (MBE) instead (not much quicker to get to, but does save a bit of time in the morning bypassing Caroona).
I'll check out your suggestion re Ketchowla and Pine Creek - 'scenic' is preferred. Having not been up that way at all before, I'm open to suggestions.
Any idea on rough time frame getting from MBE to Yunta via your suggested route? I was thinking about 3-4 hours depending on photos tops etc.
