There are 8 vehicles from a 4wd club in Brisbane coming on a 2 week trip throughout the desert and beyond. T o save fuel and time we would like to go from the Walkers Crossing track to Coongie Lakes but all my maps don't show a track. We are GPS experienced. Can this be achieved?
If permission needs to be obtained can you give me the phone number of the revelant person.

Sorry, this is not possible. You must go into Innamincka and up to Coongie. Permission unobtainable. Have a good trip - see you in Birdsville.

Hi Jane
Walkers Crossing is open, The information is as follows from Westprint, which makes good maps which you can order through Exporeoz shop.
Westprint has also received confirmation from the South Australian Department of Environment and Heritage that the Walker’s Crossing Track linking Innamincka with the Birdsville track has now been reopened with the signing of a Public Access Route agreement and gazettal in the South Australian Government Gazette.

General Comments:
1. Walker’s Crossing Track joins the Birdsville Track (near the Koonchera Sandune) to Innamincka. Walker’s Crossing is the wet weather crossing of Cooper Creek.
2. Grids are in place and the track is generally in fair condition between the Birdsville Track and Walker’s Crossing.
3. The track past Fly Lake and Gidgealpa Waterhole may be rough.
4. There is no public access to Coongie Lakes via the Walker’s Crossing Track.

There are maps that show it, westprint do but take a GPS because the biggest problem you will have is staying on the track, and not getting onto the Moomba Oil fields Road. The track has sign post onit.
Also Jane, lead the trip, trip leaders have only advantage, NO DUST
Have a great trip
