Good day all couple of mates and I are heading to Birdsville races in September. We live in Sydney and knowq it will take at least two days drive. We only have about 12 days and want to maximise this as best as possible. I was thinking bout driving straight to Birsdville for the races which are on the 7/9 then heading off across the simpson on the 8/9 and once on other side start heading back to Sydney for arrival 14/9. Does this sound feasible?

Other ideas put to us is to take our time to Birdville races spent a few days there (Includes venturing into Simpson for a night) then take time heading home back via Birdsville.

I,d be interested in some ideas out there? Must see/visit etc?

Agree, not enough time to do races and Simpson.
Tibooburra, Innaminka , Cameron's Cnr, Birdsville track, Walkers Crossing, Coongie Lakes, a night in the dessert to get a feel for the Simpson plenty of places to explore in that timeframe

G'day rare. we are heading to the race and will be arriving on the 4/9 and staying till the following Thursday with a night or two out to Poepple cnr. I think your 2nd idea sounds better, maybe come back through Innamincka / Cameron's cnr take your time to get home!!

here is what we proposing.

What do you think?

Leave Sydney to Mildura
Leave Mildura to Marree
Leave Mildura to Birdsville (Attempt inside track) 4 nights
Leave Birdsville enter Simpson head over big red sand dune follow QAA line in Simpson desert to Poppel corner. Head south on K1 line and camp any where in Simpson distance
Leave campsite on K1 track (Simpson desert)heading to Walkers crossing then head to Innaminka then head Coongie lakes.
Leave Cognie head to Tiboourra and then Cunnamulla. 2 nights
Leave Cunnamulla for Dubbo.
Leave Dubbo for home.

We have 14 nights and subject track conditions feel this is doable,

Be interested in any comments or recommendations.

Thnaks guys

Add Cameron Corner between Innamincka and Tibooburra. And if you have time don't forget the Dig Tree out of Innamincka.
