Go to www.travelmate.com.au, enter starting and ending town and it will calculate the distance and the time taken to get there.

Travel mate is good and also the RACQ web site the section you will need is on the right hand side of the page.
Both site are good.

Have a good one

You have a wicked sense of humour!

I wish I was in Birdsville & I did that!

I live in Adelaide and there are NO signs saying BIRDSVILLE.......Bummer......

I will wait until someone asks how far from Bellevue Heights to Westfield Marion. I don't even have to look at a sigbn for that one........just ask my wife or daughter........ 15 minutes........Ha...Ha......

Cheers

Nothing wrong with looking at a road map, mate! Love 'em!

Rex just wanted to know the distance, and as I can see the road sign from where I'm sitting, it seemed decent to let him know!

Cheers, Big Ears!

Hi Rex, There is a good campsite at Farina, 18km north of Lyndhurst. It is approx half way to Birdsville, has flushing toilet and hot shower for $3 per night per car.

Cheers Peter and Lez

REX

Now that you know the distance..........

You can cruise at 110kmh up to Lyndhurst....or you could go faster if you wish to take the risk.

From Lyndhurst to Marree the road only warrants 80kmh

From Marree to Birdsville your average speed will be between 60 and 70kmh. There are lots of washouts, dips, floodways and creeks to negotiate and you have to slow down for them and of course there are things to see along the way and tucker and drinks to enjoy. So 9-10hours for the 520km would suffice.

Take care and enjoy.............
