G'day,

Going to be out at Coongie Lakes for a couple of days in August before heading to Bedourie via Innamincka, up Cordillo Downs road to Diamantina Development road, then on to Bedourie.

Will obviously fuel up at Innamincka and will plan to carry enough to get to Bedourie. Looks like there is no fuel between the two unless I detour to Windorah.

Can anyone confirm that?

Also looking for bush camping sites along the way. According to EO trek notes there's bush camping somewhere between Haddons Corner and the JC Hotel ruins.

Anyone know of any other camping sites?

How about camping between JC Hotel ruins and Bedourie ?

Regards,
John.

Why not go via Birdsville, spend a couple of days with Ruth and co and have a schnitzel at the pub.

There's a couple of sites on the road before Cordillo Downs near the creeks and a good site near the Cadelga homestead ruins.

Peter,

Thanks for that. Actually we're saving Ruth and Birdsville for another time when we eventually do the Simpson.

Hello John, plenty of good camping sites - Cadelga is good as Peter said - good ones on the road from Betoota to Bedourie. Though, sometimes what we 'bushies' alls a good camp site might be different from what you'd call a good site. Not many sites with swimming pools, palm trees and drink waiters - we just look for a protected spot (like a good sand hill or quarry site) - flat ground, no prickles, out of the wind/dust good spot for campfire and clear view of the glorious sky above. How's that sound. Definitely, no fuel though so be prepared. Have a good trip.

Thanks Ruth,

Your idea of a camping spot is exactly our idea. Looking forward to getting out there.
