Thanks everyone for the information.  I agree with you all - I am trying to 
bite off more than I can chew (not unusual on these sorts of trips for me to 
push myself to go just that little bit further and chase just one more elusive 

Anyway, I think I will have a long hard think about it and perhaps look at 
using a guide (and their vehicle) or charter a flight with Slingair out of 
Kununurra to get in to the heart of the BGw's habitat.

Thanks once more folks.

Given the fees for each km after 100 km allowed a day (25 cents a km from Avis 
last week), it would be my suggestion that if you only have a short amount of 
time you hire George Swann for Black Grasswren

You'd at least be pretty sure of getting it, weather permitting!

George could also advise on whether he would "run" you down to Whim Creek or 
you were better off flying or Greyhound type coaching from Broome to Port 
Hedland or Karratha as it's about an hour or so  drive from each. Hire car 
charges alone could mostly cover George and the BG I would think?

Good luck, it's nice bird!
