Directions: Heading south from Tailem Bend cross the railway overpass, turn left onto the Mallee Highway; drive through Lameroo, Parilla and past the T-Junction to Bordertown (do not turn at the T-Junction), 5km west of Pinnaroo turn right on to Rosy Pine Lane (Ngarkat Park sign at this point, see RAA map 'Upper South East ref:J2), continue south for approximately 17 km. The Pine Hut Soak campsite is located just inside the Park entrance.
Tools Post hole digging tools, pruners, loppers, bow saw, handsaw, shovel, rake, hand tools, battery powered electric drill with a range of drill sizes and spade bits.
UHF In car and handheld UHF radios will be useful, Channel 16 will be used initially.
Personal Working gloves and footwear, drinking water, sun protection (hat, long sleeves, long pants, sun screen).
Bring high visibility vests or clothing and possibly share them with your fellow workers.
Camping: Camper trailers and caravans can be accommodated. The site has one very good long drop toilet but you need to bring everything else (water, food, shelter). Please note that the working bee dates will still be in fire danger season so the "camp fire" will need to be artificial (a gas stove will be OK).
