Inverell and Glenn Innes area
« on: June 04, 2023, 10:47:02 AM »
Needing help …
We are planning a driving trip from vic to the Inverell area and need info on best place to start and if there are guides up there to book.
We need to make the most of 3 days there. Can we hire gear? Do we need a Willoughby?
Where will we have the best chance? Places to stay?

Please help

You might find it useful to search my Blog. It's several years since I added to it. We don't live in Glen Innes any more.

Darryn63 if you look in the top right corner of the main page there is a search function, type in Inverell and you should get a lot of hits, if you do it from the Fossicking Locations  folder you will get a more compact list

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
