French Line

Open 4WD
Purni to Wonga junction has seen more and more sand drifts blow over the track this year and dunes are becoming more like the French Line with very sharp rises or drop offs. The French Line is the most demanding track in the Simpson, it has very soft sand and is slow going all the way (15–20 km/h), it has been getting rougher over the years; reduced tyre pressures are essential.

Scalloping is contributed to mostly by vehicles with incorrect tyre pressure along with towing trailers, or driving in 2wd, trailers of any kind are NOT recommended on the French Line (use the Rig rd). It’s very important to CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURE (15 – 20 psi). This is the most demanding and difficult track in the Simpson, west to east is a bit easier though, DEFINITELY USE 4x4.

QAA Line.

Open 4WD
Witjira National Park - Open to 4WD with caution
Travel is much like the French Line only the sand dunes get bigger and further apart, with the biggest dune being BIG RED, it is very rough and corrugated on the western approaches.
There is a detour around this giant dune if you can’t get over it, (don’t kill yourself trying) you can also cross over at Little Red only 2km further south. Take care at salt lakes as they can be a bit wet; drive in existing wheel tracks only. USE 4x4.

Rig Road

Open 4WD
This track is the least demanding but has been deteriorating over the years and becoming quite rough; with many sand drifts and with its clay capping slowly breaking up, travel is becoming more difficult. Care must be taken when cresting sand dunes; this track has corrugations, deep washouts & rutting. Sand dunes between the Knolls track and the K-1 Line are more difficult to cross especially from the west, single vehicle travel or trailers are not recommended in this section. The K-1 line may be difficult to navigate along as it is seldom used.

WAA Line

Open 4WD
This has the same soft and sandy conditions as the French Line but with smaller dunes and very picturesque after rain. While in this area take a look at the Lone Gum and the Knolls; this is a scenic but fragile part of the Simpson, please stay on the track. USE 4x4.
