after reading the page in the "places" section i've conceded to taking 2 days to do this bit of road.
the "permits required" bit says i need a desert parks pass, i don't though do i, as its not in a park...

and which places of interest am i allowed to visit i.e. the shearing shed, ruins... am i allowed to visit them all, and are they close to the main road of do i need to find them, are they signposted....

thanks buoys and gulls.

I was out there in 2002 and a pass wasn't required to go along main road to Birdsville - pass is required if you divert or camp in the Innamincka Regional Reserve. DEHAA website may have more or Ph (08) 8648 5300. Teeth are still loose from the corrugations - almost as bad as the road to Coongie Lakes.

Went through in June 2005 after crossing the Simpson so I had a pass. The shearing shed is just off the main road and you can't miss it and you can walk in but can't go to the house further on. I found the road OK.

I have just up loaded a image of the wool shed.
Use the "Places" section again and there will be a image of the wool shed. I hope this helps.

This has to be the best feature.

You can't miss the woolshed - right by the road - its the only thing accessible though - the station people need to get on with their work, unhindered by we tourists. Being station country, you have stick to the road, or camp adjacent. The picture on the front of MY SITE is mid Cordillo track- 100k or so below Cordillo if I recall - a stroll or two across that lovely red sand is therapeutic for me.
