Years ago I came home from Canopus to Morgan but didn't take note of the road names, just followed the signs but I think it was along option 1.
Google maps show two ways.
1. Morgan-Morgan Vale rd-Danggali Rd-Canopus 180km
2. Morgan-Canopus Track-Canopus 130km.
I don't remember seeing any other way out than going the longer way, or back the way we came through Renmark.
My question is, can you go along Canopus track or is it a closed track that google maps thinks is a through road.

From Morgan take the main road to Renmark and about 5kms out of Morgan there is a dirt road on the left called Bungunnia Road. Take that road past a couple of stations all the way to Morgan Vale.

Somewhere along the way it changes name to The Morgan Mail Road.

After Morgan Vale it goes along to Canopus and Hypurna.

I think Canopus track is on a station.

I reckon that's the way we came back, well signposted. That would make sense that Canopus track goes through a station, couldn't see any signs etc when out there.

Hi Dean

Yes it would have been option No 1 and it would have brought you out north of Canopus an this location.

You astonish me Stephen.
Name some vague out-of-the-way place and within minutes you can pull up a photo of it.

Looking back through my photos I found the same one so that confirms that.
What do you know about this Canopus track that pops up on Google maps.
Or, is it just another situation where maps will highlight a private/gated track etc

Hi Allan

If did not do it, someone else might have, so I did not want to get left at the starting blocks.......lol

Hi Dean

To be honest I do not use Google Maps, only my Topo Maps on OziExplorer.

As you know, there are a network of roads in that area are all very well defined station roads and are open to everyone to travel, and as such are public gazetted roads.

The Road that were enquiring about is the official Morgan Mail Road and a good road to drive.

If you wanted to experience more great roads, you could head even further north, and then take in some more great scenery back to Burra.

As with that station country out East of Burra, it is ever change from bluebush too mallee.

All good, yes North of Burra has some great tracks and scenery as well.
We'll be on bikes this time so are looking for shorter routes when possible.
