Steve - let me check this. are you asking about a track from the Birdsville track out to lake Eyre between the 2 or are you referring to a crossing off the homestead track itself??

As far as I know there are some good bottomless mud holes through there and I have heard of a track but Im sure the locals there may be better to ask.
No I havnt crossed the warburton there crossed it further north in May and there was water in the creek and the mud plains were rough and bumpy.
Id like to see the warburton groove, I understand its an interesting feature.
If anybody has photos???

be interested to hear what you find out,

Kezza, I'm referring to the section of the Warburton between the homestead and where it enters Lake Eyre (the Groove). In a couple of weeks we intend to travel from Macumba HS to Kalamurina HS via the Macumba/Kallakoopa/Warburton Creeks. Unfortunately both station lessees have had no need to go down to their "back paddocks" for some time and cannot advise us with any certainty of any safe crossings at the Groove or along the Warburton. Only advice "...lots of water around..and the Diamantina has put plenty of water into the Warburton recently..."
