Murray-Sunset is the second largest national park at 633,000 hectares in the state of Victoria, Australia. The park was created in 1991 and was the site of a major salt industry from 1916 to 1975. At its peak, ten thousand tons of salt was harvested. A defunct railway, the Nowingi line, terminates at the remains of a gypsum mine hopper on the Raak Plain. Other relics include Mopoke Hut, built as grazier accommodation in the 1960s. Warning! Tracks in the park contain areas of deep sand with wide wheel ruts. Big deal, so what, we are Adventure Riders ? Gonescratchin, DR Ozzy, TonyRDR, GrahamG, Masterbrewer & Todd the support crew. Gonescratchin had organised the multi-day ride, confident in the knowledge that his heavy BMW R1200 was familiar with the area & would make life easier for its rider ................................. or so he'd read somewhere while indulging in the usual BMW riders' past time . (actually his bike was Daryl Beattie's (ex 500cc Grand Prix rider's) weapon that had unfortunately had a misdemeanour with the Sunset country some years ago and was familiar with kissing the sand beneath his tread) Never-the-less confidence was high as we grouped at Callington with a support vehicle of Caffe Latte's and cold beer and TonyRDR's one bottle of Southern Comfort for medicinal purposes for the trek into the Murray Sunset National Park of adventure.
