Hi All

Has anyone done this recently.... Could only find some very old posts. Looking to get road conditions, plus if it is doable in a day or simply to much.

Still doing research from Birdsville to Innaminka - was planning on going via Cordillio Downs but was asked to consider Haddon Corner

Would be a long day, but I have done it before towing a camper trailer. You could shorten the trip by coming straight down through Cordillo Downs.

On road conditions, can't help on recent, but generally all good until it rains...

Like an highway. Slightly longer than Cordillo rd but way faster. It's the Arrabury rd, and to get to Haddon cnr you need to drive off the main rd for 10Km or so. The Cordillo rd was not recommended from either Birdsville locals and Innamincka roadhouse due high traffic of big trucks, that would be difficult to overtake.
And the scenery from the dunes to the gibber plains is amazing. Done in 6 hours few weeks ago.
Check the vid.

Your'e looking at about 500km by the time you go into The Corner and not exactly a super-highway. A long day indeed.
If you can afford 2 days, and camp along the way, then you would have enough time to detour into Cordillo Downs Shearing Shed and maybe go via Nappa Merrie and the Dig Tree.
If you must do it in a day, I would go via Cordillo Downs and still get to see the Shearing Shed.
