" I was more concerned about the general quality of the track; whether to make a start or give it a miss. If I was to strike a washed out creek crossing

Go for it, Laurie. Make the start.
Good roads, well maintained. No issues for a 2wd unless a big dump happens. Then everything stops - 2 or 4 wheel don't matter - it's just impassable (yep, 1st hand experience - stuck for 4 days).
Relatively speaking you are unlikely to get a washed out creek anywhere. No, there are not creeks every few km; rather a few bigger ones feeding into L Eyre
South. The creek crossings on the Oodna track are very well constructed and some have concrete causeways.
On the Borefield Rd there is only one 'creek' & that is the shallow depression about 3 km wide which is the watercourse of the Gregory
, about 20 -25 km south of the Oodna Track.
At this time of year there is plenty of traffic for support if needed.
Don't forget to drop your tyre pressures.
