Just wondering if anyone has travelled from Andamooka to Farina around the top of lake Torrens. I think the road (don't know name) travels through Witchelina Stn and have heard conflicting stories about needing to by a pass etc to drive it. Does anyone know anything about this section road? Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Hughesy

Hi Hughesy
Last time we travelled the track you had to get a permit which allowed you to travel through Mulgaria station and also to camp on the Station around Lake Torrens

We did Farina to Andamooka via Mulgaria in about June 2002 pulling camper trailer. No problems with a few sand dunes just North of Andamooka if you have any experience. We camped near a creek about 5km past the Northern going road to Stuart Creek Opal mine (abandoned, we visited), the road to Mulgaria turns West-East at this point. You can also divert on a South track to the very top of Lake Torrens ther, about 5 km. Our camp might have been beside Stuart Creek itself, just West of the creek on the Northern side of the road - left it clean. We paid a fee ($30 ??) as we passed through Mulgaria Station itself.

Still the same cost. There is a brochure available on the "Torrens Track" available from SA Tourism Commission.
