I am leaving it a bit late but due to work comittments it happens. Can somone tell me what permits that I will need.

I don't think you will need any. We did the Melb to Birdsville section (then further north) last year and didn't need (ar at least get) any.
Take the time to go into Tibboburra as we found it a very interesting community. Then you can take the Sturt National Park route (Loop Rd) which is less travelled and more interesting than the usual route. Comes out at Fort Grey about 30 kms from CC.
Give yourself plenty of time to do the Bore Track.

No permits required apart from permission for the Bore Track. You will need as Desert Parks Pass however which you can buy via this site

You only need the desert parks pass if you go into south australia At 90odd$ it is not worth it . Just make sure you don't enter SA at Peopple corner Stay in NT and qld. The QAA is in Qld and the track down to peopple in qld and Nt. If you venture down the french line then you will need it

Innamincka is in the Innaminka Regional Reserve and will require a Desert Parks Pass.

The hotline is 1800 816 078 if you are in doubt.

$90 for a brief visit!? Sound on the expensive side to me. I have always wondered why the SA Desert Parks pass in not available on a pro-rata basis - ie. $90 for 12 months - $10 for one month (no maps etc). I'd buy one then.

Hmmm... Perhaps I should lobby for Vic to charge South Australians for a High Country Pass - WA, NSW and the NT might like to do similar :)

Hi Mike,

ParksVic makes an art form of charging for licenses. $275 for an Annual Landscape Photography License for instance.

Ciao for now
Andrew who pays taxes to SA, NT, Vic, federal (Uluru & Kakadu) and NSW governments for doing stuff in parks.

That is for commercial photography though I think? But still wrong in my opinion.

Simple solution though... isn't there...? :)

that is for "small scale" "speculative" photography - yes, if you intend to sell the photos.

no special permissions or access.

simply a tax.

Anyways - the Outdoor Recreation Centre is currently undergoing a study of what requirements to make on people undertaking 4WDing activities so expect a tax on that soon too.

Ciao for now
Andrew.

At Inamincka, if I remember correctly, if you camp in the reserve, yes a pass is required, but if you camp on the town common, not required. Last time I went through it was $5.00 for the night on the common, dropped into an honesty box. The common is on the creek and is 50 acres in size, so plenty of sites to pick from. A few drop toilets spread around, and go to the pink amenities up near the pub for a shower.

You are right you know. It is a public road and therefor you should not need a DPP.

Also never thought of it as only going to Poeppel Corner. I think that the track in the last km or so may be in SA, but what the hell.

I buy a DPP every year so the cost is less ($60)
