The adventure begins in Arkaroola Village on the edge of Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park, and ends in the desert oasis of Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park. Part one includes the trip from Arkaroola to Lake Frome, Chambers Gorge, Parachilna, Copley and the beginning of the Strzelecki Track at Lyndhurst.
The Hema Map Patrol is a field team that is responsible for driving Australia’s off-road 4WD tracks and remote roads to update Hema’s paper mapping products and digital navigation mapping database. While travelling off-road, the Map Patrol are gathering accurate track and point of interest (such as campsites, caravan parks, rest areas, historical points, lookouts and much more) data, capturing media like photos and video, making trip and track notes for other travellers and more. This information is used to help make every Hema map as useful and up-to-date as possible for travellers who want to discover Australia off-road with confidence.
