I had a rough idea of heading to Burra, Danggali Conservation Pk, Riverland, Ngarkat, Tintinara, Messent, Coorong and home. Maybe a riverland start would be less travel.
This may too much for 3 days, could easily be changed on the road or too suit others.
For me personally Im more into touring and not real challenging 4x4 stuff, however your interests can change so easily.
I would envisage 2 bush camps with a fire and someone to have a yak with.

Dean,
I tend to agree with you, a bit too much for 3 days. You can spend a week plus, just in Sunset & Ngarkat. There is so much to see in these adjoining areas. If you have no info on these areas, let me know and can help you out

We came from Yunta down the backway through Danggali to renmark last October and it took about 5hrs to get down without stopping to look at anything. Was a good drive but like everywhere else it is very dry up there. Hope the weather forecast for rain on Tuesday will be right.
You will need to book at Danggali to camp as the areas for camping are restricted.
The ranger there is Mate Osborne and his phone no. is 08 8595 8010 take him a copy of the Advertiser and he'll love you for it.
If you want to camp on the river, there are plenty of camp sites around Chowilla, at Lyrup, Katarapko as the long weekend is usually quiet here. Nights are frosty now.
The Border track south of Pinnaroo is closed until decent rains occur but the run from Murtho down to Pinnaroo is OK. Don't follow the track all the way down to the bitumen at Pinnaroo but turn of a couple of k's before so you don't pass through the road block.
You could spend the 3 days just doing that bit if you stop to smell the roses although not many rose bushes out there. LOl

Thanks mate,

I havent spoken too the ranger yet, I presumed such a big park would have loads of camping spots.
We are staying in Paringa with some friends this weekend, and am hoping too head down the border track, how many driving hours would you think Renmark- Pinnaroo would take. With 4 kids under 7 I would expect numerous stops.

Hi Dean,
Sounds a bit much mate, what about 1st night Danggali, through Burra, 2nd night Murray Sunset somewhere while doing border track and others, and then home via Pinnaroo?
Just a suggestion mate and we would be interested for sure, nothing like a good YAK around camp fire!
Have a plan for wet weather as most parks will be off limits if its been raining.
Cheers Mate catch up soon.

Gday Pesty,

Sounds like one spot needs to picked, maybe 2 and go from there. Youre right about the rain, its been so long you forget about it.
Am heading with friends too msnp this weekend, bit its such a big park, am open to any suggestions.
I havent been to danggali before, I have an old map that shows a 100km 4wd round trip, called tipperary I think. Sounds like a booking for camping would be needed though.
