Moreton Island - Local info...

Hi all;

Chasing a bit of local info on Moreton island, for a trip we are planning in the future....

Are there any house (that anyone knows of) that'll sleep 16ish people? Or two house of 10 each; side by side.....

And what's the better time to visit? April or September?

Matt

Re: Houdini the Baja Bus

Hey Parj,


That track is actually "locally" known as the easy track. The one that people towing use to get onto and off 9 nine beach.

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

If my memory serves me well; when we bent all the pipe work up for Bob (now chubby) we followed the lines around the body to minimise risk of damage while off-roading, and to clear the tyres when on full lock and full compression.....

Re: Manx Club Events Calendar - Have Your Say!!

That was a great trip though, pulled the engine out and re-aligned the clutch, broke my fuel pump, held the front end on with ratchet straps, ghost ranger, ran over my co-pilot, lost my
Wallet,

Great times

When you hook the airbags up; join the two of them together,
That way when one compresses, it'll force the other to extend.....

I never had an overheating issue running up here on the
Northern heats, as long as there was no air in the system
