Hi all,

Heading to the Flinders in September and was wondering if anyone has driven on the private road west of Mulgaria Station? We are looking to go from Andamooka over to Farina via this road as this seems to be the simplest route. As long as permission is given by the homestead.

Also what are the must see areas in the Finders from people's experience?

A really good book for the Flinders is called
"The flinders rangers, An adventurers guide" by Ron and Viv Moon. A fee is payable to pass thru Mulgaria Station, but I dont have the phone no. handy to ring. I have seen it on this site before so maybe try a search.

We did the Farina 4x4 Trail (Andamooka to Farina via Mulgaria) on the Anzac weekend last year. Its a good trip around the top of Lake Torrens and ends at teh excellent Farina Campgrounds.

Permits are $25 per vehicle and obtained from the Andamooka Post Office.

From the 4wd out of Adelaide database:
went across there in December. Nothing too difficult provided there is no rain. Beutifull outback scenery, everchanging, sand, shale, couple of creeks and the drive to the lake is well worth it.Take your GPS as when I went through someone had changed some of the signs around and without my GPS we would have ended up at Stuarts Creek.You will need to get permission from Rob Savage who is the leaseholder. Cost is about $25.00 and I think you can get permits from the Andamooka info centre.Just make sure that you treat the area with respect as it was closed for some time from hoons shooting up the water troughs, roring around on the lake and nearly knocking his ver when they came roring through the station.There was a good camgroung at Farina station and the ruins there are problem some of the best in the country.4x4 Magazine did an article earlier this year.It is a great little trip and fairly remote. When I was there I was the first vehicle in about two weeks to go through so make sure you are prepared.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the info. Great pics. I take it from your comments that Farina campground would be the place to stay.

How long did it take you to get to Farina from Andamooka?

Andamooka to Farina is a full days drive if you do all of the stops.
