We have been planning tto include the bore track (Innaminka to Bollard Lagoon) in our trip for some time. It is a bit disappointing that the oil exploration companies are discouraging travel.

Anyone know if bollard will let us through and when or if the oil exploration team will stop discouraging travel?

I was also planning to use the Bore track again this year as it is a much nicer trip than the alternative & still will unless it is closed off. Discouraging & banning are too different things, I will find the number for Bollards & give them a ring.

After much searching I found the number for the Corner Store & rang, as we were talking Gina from Bollards called him on the uhf so he ask for me & Gina said the Bore track is open. The number for Bollards Lagoon is 08 8091 3873 if you want to check closer to your trip.
Have a safe one

I work in the oil and gas industry in "corner country". As far as I am aware the company I work for has not made any official "discouragement to drive in the area". There are many public roads in the area, Bore Track, Strez track, Della Road to innamincka and public roads through Southwest Queensland as well. I know the Road Reports section in the Adelaide Advertiser newspaper makes the statement about discouraging use of the Bore Track due to petroleum industry activities. there has been patroleum activities going on the area for 40 years and will continue for many years. My company has it's own road network and the bore track is not used often and seldom maintained. most traggic you will come across if any is landcruisers and the occassional road train. Common sense to driving in this area is the norm. I have also heard that Bollards lagoon charges a $10 fee for Bore Track access from their end. Have a good trip, this time of year, bring a fly net!

Thanks for that info. I am aware of Bollards $10 fee which is fair enough as far as I am concerned. We have packed the fly nets!
