O.C.R. - 2012

Ok folks, the wait is over, sorry for any delays, I have been rather busy.

The next OCR will be held at Bramwell Station FNQ, not to be confused with Bramwell Junction which is the roadhouse 12kms south of the station. That is where you buy your fuel.

Have spoken to Kaleena who along with her partner have just taken over the station, which btw is a working cattle station, and she is very keen on accommodating us. Mentioned that you could be looking at anything from 150 to 300 riders+, and she said in typical Aussie speak "no worries mate".

There is plenty of camping area with shady trees, toilets, showers, meals and a licensed bar, cost is $10 per person per night, but no swiming hole,( they have bloody big croc's ).

Currently the tar ends somewhere around Laura, which means dirt for about 450kms.

If you do a google search you will get a few photo's which are old, the previous owner Wendy had a few issues and has moved on.

Currently they are flood bound due to the big wet,

See you there on the 2nd full weekend of August 2012

Cheers

where did all the dribble and the pissing up the shed wall go ?????


well done Russ, if the bastards can't keep it on track, ban 'em I say !!!!!

Not that I'll be there ( bit far from home ) though would be an adventure getting there, might have to get Guzzimike to plot a course, he's good at that ( not much good for anything else, apparently ( hi Mike) ) Look forward to reading about everyones planning.

Too far from home!!?? I'm going to go to the Border run first so I can justify to the wife why I need to take 3 - 4 weeks off to go to a rally

Mike will just get you lost & then complain about how cold it is. ( ok maybe Cape York might be a bit different to Oberon in winter)
G'day Mike

Chris,

I've done a google maps search for Bramwell Junction and got the Roadhouse which is in Weipa. When I searched on Bramwell Station it gave me a location which is closer to Cooktown (just south of Lakefield N.P.). Bloody Mapsource doesn't want to know about Bramwell anything.

Can you give us a better description of where to find the rally location? Just for interest sake at this time.

Thanks,

BruceC
