I can find the creek but not the crossing. What part of the creek is the crossing located on?

Mick, its just north of the confluence of the Warburton River and the Kallakoopah Creek.

G'day Stevo,

I do like a navigation challenge :) .

I can't find the bloody crossing either.

How far is "just a little way north"?

I have the Kallakoopah joining the Warburton at Lat 27º 17' 19"S and Long. 138º 32' 50" E but no sign of a crossing within a bulls roar in any direction.

The closest thing I can see is a very minor track from the SE that comes in from the Birdsville Track and ends at Kalamunkinna Waterhole [27º 17' 17"S 138º 33' 22"E ] which is just south east of where the 2 creeks join. There could possibly be a crossing somewhere round there but it is not apparent on my Auslig 1:250,000. [cant wait for a smaller scale to be released on CD :) :) ]

is this of any help??

Sorry, but can't help you with the co-ords.

However I've hear that if you miss it you'll be driving into a 'bottomless' pit of mud ane bye bye vehicle!

Gooday Old Soldier
There are no tracks in this area. Travelling from the west the "track" ceases to exist at Pingle Soakage, several kilometers to the west of the Warburton Groove. Travelling in an easterly direction from Kalamurina the track ceases at Kalamunkinna WH. The crossing I refer to is little known and is one of the very few relatively safe places a vehicle can cross through this area. Being close to Lake Eyre, even in very dry seasons only a thin dry crust of clay covers a bottomles ooze of mud.
In areas such as this, the 1:250000 series of topo's are as much use as teats on a bull. We use the 1:100000 dyeline prints which cover the Pastoral areas of SA. They are poor on topographic detail but there are very few tracks that are not shown. I would be surprised if the 1:100000 series is released on CD for far northern SA.
