A recent update in your trek notes showed the Border Track closed as of the 25th June but did not indicate whether it was just the part of the track refered to your trip notes.
Is there any indication as I am planning a trip along the southern part from Murrayville to Bordertown ?

I believe it was opened after recent rain. Best to ring the ranger for the latest.

On reflection maybe you are thinking of the Murrayville track which runs south from Murrayville which is a pretty good dry weather road but turns into a mess during rain. The Border track runs south from Pinaroo.

Definately the Border Track. Heading north on the Murrayville Track across to Scorpion Springs and south on the Border Track to Bordertown. Thanks Mad Dog for the telephone number. Will ring before we leave.

The one way section you are talking about was closed but re-opened late June following the rains. I was down there 2nd July. With the rain the dunes were pretty tame but the mud holes at the bottom end had become a bit more interesting. You can get a report on the closures etc on the Dept for Environment & Heritage website www.environment.sa.gov.au
