Hi Firstly may I say what a great web sight this is.
We are in the early stages of planning a trip from adelaide up through the flinders leigh creek marree & down through roxby & woomera back to Adelaide with a jacyo dove camper trailer Firstly is this possible as one of my maps show The Olympic dam road north as a private road & secondary if you can go on the road what is it's condition.

cheers Andy

Hi Andy
The road from Marree to Roxby is a public road it is called the Borefield Road it genarally is in reasonable condition it does have suprise bulldust holes and a few bends closer to Roxby are on crests how ever it is raining here at the moment and is closed. It usually takes around two days to dry out but we have some storms blow through dumping a fair bit of water. it would pay to check the road conditions before you leave. P.S. after it is opened it can still be slippery under the crust take it easyand you will be ok have a good trip

Andy, the road North of Roxby Downs can be used as a public road, the mine put it in to service the bores along it, hence "The Bore Road". It usually in very good condition. When are you planning to go as from November on, the temps up that way can be extreme, as I found out in Arkaroola late in the season, 45c. Enjoy your trip.

Hi Andy
I came down from Oodnadatta and along the Borefield track 3 weeks ago. It had just been graded and was in fine condition. We then cut across from the dog fence and across a few dunes into Andamooka station and into White Dam near Andamooka. You will have no trouble on the borefield track.
