You've practically found the answer for yourself. Click on the word Innamincka in your message (it's now coloured blue and underlined) scroll to the bottom of the page and hey presto - there's your answer. Simple eh !!

Redbacks, just up the road (Charleville) it can get cold enough in July to keep you awake shivering all night ! Assume that it will be desert cold, and you won't go too far wrong.

Day time temperatures low to mid twenties, with possibility low thirties. Night time will be governed by what cloud cover is around. Clear skies and it can drop below zero, cloud cover and could only drop down to low teens

agree with Stephen, nice days cold nights if clear skies. Travelled Alice, Boulia, Birdsville, Innamincka, Broken Hill four years ago. Left Alice -6 dregrees 5 nights in swags and frosted in every morning.,but the days make up for the brisk mornings.Dont let the night temps put you off as its agreat trip , you can always light a fire in the morning to get warm.Just have good bedding.

Last year we stopped in at Peterborough and it got down to minus 7 degrees.

Pretty cold in the swag.

No good deed goes unpunished!

We experienced a frost at Nardoo (near Cunnamulla) and Charleville last July. The temperature is very pleasant in the low to mid-20's during the day, but as soon as the sun disappears it gets very cold very quickly. Nothing a good campfire and quality sleeping bag won't fix.

At the National Gathering Last year in Innamincka we had one morning with a frost.

I spent the whole time in shorts and short sleeved shirts

Most of the others looked like they were on a snow trip when the sun went down hahaha

Hi
Innamincka last gathering was quite pleasant around the fire when I got there.
Later in my travels did a bit of washing and moved onto Dalahousie Springs too late to hang out the washing that night so left in in the plastic bag hanging on the Bull Bar. It took till 10 am next morning or so for it to thaw out enough to hang it out, at least it did not take too long to dry when hung out.
Enjoyed the stars at night and the steam rising off the springs in the morning.
If you feel cold put some more clothing layers on.
Cheers
Russ
