I am planning to travel along the Oodnadatta track in the first week of June frfom Marre to Marla, I am little concerned with the current rains in the area and the condition of the track as we will be tacking an off road trailer and boat on route to the Kimberley.
Has anybody travelled through there in the last couple of weeks and how is the track.

If you click on forum at the top you will see the heading Roads, click on this and then the Oodnadatta Track and this will give you the current situation.

Steve you would have more of a chance guessing the winning Lotto numbers the asking what the track will be like in 2 months time.

Road conditions in those areas can change overnight plus that area can get up to 50mm plus of rail with out warning in a very short period of time.

All you can do is keep a tab up till the last minute on the Dept of Transport web site and look at plaining an alternative route just in case.

There is no easy solution and nobody knows what the track is like from day to day.

Look at last week, big floods in Cobber Pedy and it looks like they are going to class it a a disaster, nobody new they were coming.

Sorry to be blunt and to the point but it's the truth.

Entry points to the Ood, and the Coober Pedy to William Ck Rd and prob other accesses are signposted. When the track is mud or flooded it's closed.
