WAPU Adventure Club’s first trip down the Holland Track was a great success. HollandTrack3

A late arrival for some at the Hyden Caravan Park on Friday night, including one Member filling up with petrol instead of diesel, was the start of a good weekend.

Starting the track Saturday morning allowed everyone to ease into the relatively dry conditions and have a play in what mud remained in the giant bog holes.

A steep drop off into one bog hole showed the black D-Max why a steel rear bar can come in handy, tearing the stock aluminium one from its mounts.

We had a quick stop off at Mount Holland for lunch and then packed away the kilometres in the afternoon.

Camping along the track in perfect weather provided some awesome scenery. The nights were enjoyed with a few beers next to a raging fire, under a starry sky.

Sunday, much the same took us through varying scenery of woodlands and low lying scrub, showing just how remote and diverse the Goldfields landscape can be. With good pace, we managed to make it to Cave Hill Reserve where we set up camp for the night.

Monday morning was a short 100km drive into Coolgardie where most of the group refuelled and prepared for the 550km drive back to Perth.

Thanks to all the Members who came along and looking forward to another run up the track next year.
