Has anyone driven the track that turns off the Birsdville developement road and travels down to the dig tree via Planet Downs on the Queensland side of the border. We want to visit Haddons Corner on our way to Innamincka and thought we would use this route. Like to know what the road was like and how long the trip took. Thanks, Steve

Steve, next year we are also looking to do that trek via Haddons Crn. & onto Innaminka via Qld/dig Tree. then down Srazleki to Cameron Crn to Tibooburra. Would be interested in some feedback when you get back home.

This road is called the Arrabury road and I consider it a nicer drive than going through Cordillo Downs. The road is in good condition at present and goes through rolling downs with lots of flat toipped mesas - I always imagine that John Wayne and the whole Sioux nation is going to come riding out from behding one of these mesas one day. Sorry, I have a fertile imagination but that's the sort of country it is. Really nice wide vistas. Hope you enjoy the drive.

Ruth! John Wayne? I am beginning to think you've lived in Birdsville too long. Just kidding, see you in July. Happy trails, Mike.

Steve Did the trip 2 years ago and the scenery is magnificant. Cowboys and Indians country for sure. The lower section of the road was being reconstructed. Only problem we had was the Hema Map is not accurate at the Arrabury intersection. Map angles just did not add up and there are more roads in the area than indicated. Trev
