Big Red is 40 metres high and is iconic so some people just go there to drive up it for fun; others do a complete crossing of the Simpson Desert.

Im sure its amazing. I love sand dunes. Here you cannot drive on any dunes near see just walk there. Cannot slide from dunes too because you slide sand down . its amazing that you can drive on it in oz.

Well there are more than 1000 dunes in the Simpson Desert, so plenty of sand to go around!

I am not even sure If we will do Big Red. Seems that there is a big show on in town that month, and if it is on when we would be in town, we will avoid Birdsvile and Big Red altogether. They haven't put the date up yet, so until they do we won't know

Do you mean the Big Red Bash? If so, Big Red is closed to vehicle traffic anyway.

Due to the Big Red Bash I’ll be giving Birdsville and the whole of Queensland a big miss.

Aaaaah, too bad.

I have a good plan for you, come to Europe and we will go together to the Sahara desert, pretty big dunes over there !

Well, I will still be travelling across the desert, just not a sandy desert. I have changed the proposed route and instead of returning via Queensland we will return via SA, with as little crossover as possible. When did you say you were coming to Oz? I’m sure you would enjoy seeing what the car can do
