I have heard others say that this is where you feel the
"Real Australia". As a bushwalker I find that
it takes me to remote areas that very few people have seen
and the use of a cart, which allows me to carry 50 lts or
more of water, means that I am not dependent on my destinations
having water. So I can go any where that the cart will go.Distances
become distorted as there is very few reference points and
every little object on the lake surface is an attraction.
I am a member of the Adelaide Bush Walkers Club and have
taken a few groups on Lake Frome. As we walk across the
lake people will wander over to look at the most insignificant
I suppose it's the nearest thing that I will get to pulling
a sleigh across the Antarctic Ice. For at times it feel
like you are in a remote snow field, especially first thing
in the morning during June and July as it can be quite cool.
Above are three other reasons - says he tongue in cheek.
