Past Darling River Expeditions
I've really not researched past expeditions much, just a quick Google and skim read! Please contact me if you want to be added or to have any details corrected.
Upper river systems
It's difficult to put together exactly what people have done here, but most appear to have near on or above 1,000 km on roads rather than staying in the river system itself. Most starting near the end of the Condamine. Not surprising as this is a river system that rarely flows and only sees a flood in average once every 8 years.
