This is about the journey....
It's not a technically difficult drive and the track is well maintained, but 4WD STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. Be well prepared and organise your gear carefully. Safe and suitable for the relatively inexperienced. Beautiful remote scenery, quirky stopovers and tough remote towns....More
Just completed the track from west (Marla) to east (Marree) and had a ball. The track was mostly dry but had rained and been closed the week before.
