We did Tibooburra to Dig Tree a few weeks ago with an off highway caravan. Roads were mostly quite corrugated and very, very dusty. As always said, drive to the conditions and reduce tyre pressures.
Keep an eye on the weather forecasts as rain is predicted for the coming few days but I'm not sure how far it will extend.
Coongie Lakes is worth a visit. There are also other Burke and Wills historic sites in the Cooper Creek area as well as the Dig Tree.

what tyre pressures do you use out of curiosity? I mainly keep mine at 30psi on twin cab hilux with rtt, fully loaded with occupants we come in at 2900kg according to our local weigh bridge. Always trying to reduce weight, but think this is our minimum - cheers Garry

I had mine at around 30psi as well. Speed was about 60 km/hr but of course varies quite a bit and was higher on the better bits.

I recommend going up the Old Strz Tk if possible, a lot less traffic in general, but no trucks like on the main road.
They are very slow, and create a lot of dust.

Do check out Burkes grave site (Burkes Waterhole) and Cullyamurra Waterhole is very nice camping.
Plenty of good camping at the dig tree site too.
The loop from the dig tree to come back around to the north of Innaminka is a nice drive too.

Just travelled the Old Strez and it is almost a highway. It seems to have received a fair bit of attention as the drilling exploration has extended out that way. We left Innaminka about 8:30 and were at Montecollina before midday.

Be prepared to be flexible. Just a light rain up there can close the tracks for a day or two. Then they open to 4WD only & will be slower than usual.

Hi John,

An alternate route from Innamincka to Tibooburra is down through the northern end of the Bore Track, and south Through Epsilon and Omicron.

It is the shortest route, but quite scenic, and you enter into the Sturt National Park via Toona Gate.

Enjoy...

Cheers, Baz - The Landy

Yes Baz,

I endorse that route as a good scenic drive, especially since the Southern section of the Bore Track through Bollards Lagoon has been closed.
Cheers
Allan
