This was kind-of a practice trip for outback adventuring, kind-of looking for a place inside Victoria we hadn’t been that any random travel restrictions that might pop up wouldn’t cause issues with.

A few pieces of equipment make their first appearance - the frillneck hat (the Kathmandu one didn’t have a long enough back), the Garmin Fenix 6X watch, and the MSR Guardian water filter.

Also, the 3m 6800 full-face respirator made an appearance, but I’ve owned that since early 2020 - due to bushfires, not COVID - you couldn’t get masks at all. Activated carbon filters actually work pretty well for dealing with “nuisance gases” emitted by pit toilets on a hot day.

This is the start of my arbitrarily declared Season 4 as Season 3 was getting a bit long.

There’s really nowhere in Victoria remote enough to be considered truly Outback. But Murray Sunset National Park, Victoria’s second biggest national park, located in the north-west corner of the state, is certainly close in terms of weather, geography and appearance. If Victoria did have an outback, this would be it.

We visit the pink lakes - Lake Becking and Lake Crosbie, Mt Crozier, the Underbool Track camping area, the Border Camping Area, the Shearers Quarters, Rocket Lake, Mopoke Hut, the Raak Plain and the Nowingi Line.
