Permission to travel south doen the Emu Road to Maralinga is very hard to come by (nee impossible for normal mortals). I'd say you'll have to finish off at Coober Pedy. Another alternative is to head down from Coober, cut in to the trancentral service road through Kingoonya and Tarcoola and then down Googs Track to ceduna. A very nice alternative.Trek notes on this site for the Anne Beadell will be a good start for you.

Regards

Mick

I don't know Mick.

We have to learn somewhere sometime, but to ask such a question, I'm not sure Alan should be traveling in this area of Australia.

Maybe it is time M&M start to add a guide with the membership.,


Cheers

Richard

we also leave ourselves open when answering

Doh....Brain fade. My apologies Alan John. I think I've cognitively left the building!! Just re read your post and obviously your intended route didn't register with me. I had you coming across the Anne Beadell from the west. The bulk of my original response still stands in that you will be very unlikely to get access to the restricted Emu road down to Maralinga. You will have to go on to Volkes Hill Corner. You will need permits for the trip south but they will be much easier to obtain. Scrap the Googs suggestion, it's way out of your way. Perhaps a trip for another year. Thanks Richard, brain fade on my behalf.

Regards to you both, Mick

Hi Brain Faders,

How about just head south on the Connie Sue from Neale Junction and then through Rawlinna?

It's not that much of a backtrack to get to Eyre...

Don't forget the Jonh Baxter Memorial...

Cheers
Alan
