OK - how important is a Desert Parks Pass for visiting Innamincka?

We'll be there around the time of the National Gathering in July - but only for a couple of nights. We're intending to do the Dig Tree Loop, but other than that it will be in and out along the Strzelecki (which I believe doesn't need the pass).
Am intending to get a SA National Parks Holiday Pass (covers 3mths) with Camping - does this cover anything in that area? Is there a 'day trip' pass for the Innamincka Reserve region?

It's all a little confusing, these passes - I have no intention of going as far as Birdsville and that type of area (yet!) so the Desert Parks Pass seems a bit more than we really need.

Any advice?

Let me clarrify something I thought of after posting the above -

If the pass is required, then no problem - I just wonder about the requirement and the cost - $100 for a couple of days seems to be a little excessive.

DPP's are only needed when you want to visit certain areas for longer than day visits. I buy one every year as I could spend some time in the remote parks of SA any given year.

You can pick up a day pass( call 1800 816 078 to find out sales points ) if you want to go to Coongie Lakes. All Main Roads in the area are Public Roads and do not require a DPP

Not sure of the SA Parks Pass and what it covers. Best check it out on their website.

You can buy a day pass at the Trading Post, next to the Innamincka Pub.


Come any closer and I'll rip your throat out!

Best not to buy any passes till you get there (if at all - depends) - that way you don't 'do' your $ if you can't make it for some reason.
