"End of an era" indeed! I'm glad I was able to visit there on my 2008 trip. Best wishes, Lynnie!

I'm one of five people on the planet not on FB so I can't look at the link. And my google search didn't turn up any news. Who is the new owner, and what do they plan to do with the roadhouse?

Well that leaves me, No 5.
We are booked in for a night in August. Was looking forward to meeting Lyn & family but will be too late for that & too early to meet the new Owners. Wishing Lyn & family all the best in the future.

mikeHZZ + DIGGER12 + myself are in the second 5.

Who wants a face ache anyway. What does "like" mean like and what if I don't like, like.
I knew a bloke once who always said like all the time, he was known as "like like" by all who knew him.

I wish I didn't know what face book is! Maybe my coworkers would get some work done if they were also unaware of it, lol.

P.S. I'm not in Oz either!

Well done and best wishes to Lynnie.
I hope she has a very happy 'retirement' on what must have been one of the toughest jobs imaginable.
I stayed overnight Oodnadatta, and it was the most terrible night ever, due to the local inhabitants fighting and swearing all night and bashing on the tin fence around the caravan park. I don't know which mental gelding decided a pub would be a good idea, but I hope it haunts them to this day.
But ... best wishes to Lynnie. They gave a great deal to provide their Pink roadhouse service not to mention their

Yeah Shaker I pulled up at 6 pm, the town looked like a ghost town so we drove a few kms up the road and camped in the dunes.

For those who can't/wont access Facebook here is a copy of the content

" After almost four decades in the heart of Australia in Oodnadatta, Lynnie Plate is
moving on.

Contracts have been exchanged for the sale of the Pink Roadhouse, and in early September new owners will move to Oodnadatta to begin another chapter in the
outback.

You are invited by Lynnie, Alice, Tilly and Ruby to help them farewell the region on the 12-14th July and take part in three important events:

1. Friday 12th July 4pm OFFICIAL NAMING OF THE OODNADATTA AIRSTRIP IN HONOUR OF ADAM PLATE at Oodnadatta airport. The SA Government has announced it will host this ceremony in recognition of Adam Plate’s contribution to the local community.

2. Friday 12th July 530-10pm PLATE FAREWELL PARTY at Pink Roadhouse with speeches, music, food and fun and you get to meet the new owners. All welcome. Food and alcohol available.

3. Saturday 13th July OODNADATTA BRONCO BRANDING at the Oodnadatta race, 2kms south of town. Food and alcohol can be purchased. More info at: http://www.oodnadattaraceclub.org.au/ and like their Facebook page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Oodnadatta-Racing-Horse-Sports-Club/280146639843

FURTHER INFO – please read:
Due to the large number of people expected to attend, we ask that all people planning to come try to be as self sufficient as possible. While you will be able to buy food and alcohol, it's unlikely there will be any accommodation available. We ask that you prepare to camp if you do attend."

Thank you! Very nice, naming the air strip after Adam.

Sounds like it will be quite a party! I hope somebody from EO attends and shares a report. :)
