Owen, VK5HOS and I re-activated this park in the hope that there would be a few chasers who had not yet worked it.
The park is accessed by travelling south on Punt Road from Mt. Gambier towards the Victorian town of Nelson. About halfway you pass through a small settlement called WYE. Turn left onto the dirt road and travel up the hill and into the scrub. You pass numerous tracks off to the left in the reserve until, after about 1-2 km you come to the “Penambol Conservation Park sign. We turned right up along the fence line running between the park on the left and open paddock on the right. Found a spot to park the shopping trolley and set up.Owen was happy to help in setting up but did not wish to activate as he has been very busy lately and reckoned he just wanted to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
We worked 20 stations from here and had 9 park to park contacts.
