Hi Dicko

There has been lots posted here on the forum but what is new is a service now out of Lyndhurst Pub. They were the same price as Marree with the bonus of extra flying time and seeing the Flinders from the air as well.


Cheers

I was up that way a few weeks ago and went out to Halligan Bay where there was plenty of water to see. The Oodnadatta track was in very good condition but the access road was pretty corrugated.

Hi Dicko
You could take the track from William Creek to the lookout, it's about 120kl return and it's in pretty good nick.

Went to the nth lake access via Muloorina Stn last week. The road from the station has a few corrugations in the sand hill area but not too bad. The water was a long way out however...500 m? Disappointed to see some yahoos had left wheelie marks from trail bikes on the shore which spoiled the vision for me. The station had some good camping grounds and toilet facilities. Even found a site with plenty of wood which seems to be coming a rarity.

Hi Dicko,

Travelling from Marree to William Creek there are 3 main spots.

1) Just after leaving Marree you can go 55 kms to Muloorina Station and camp on the bank of the Frome River that has water in it from the station homestead Artesian Bore. Lovely camp area, but no showers. Then travel 45 kms to Level Post Bay on the south eastern corner of Lake Eyre North past a small portion of the south lake. I am not sure if any water there at moment.

2) From Marree you can head towards William Creek and just before the old railway siding of Curdimurka you will not miss the southern side of Lake Eyre South from the road. It is around 2-300 meters from the road.

3) From William Creek there is a road to Haligan Bay on the south western side of the north lake. l have not been to this spot but evidently very good viewing and camping spot.

Hope this is what you want, happy travelling and enjoy Gods Country.

Cheers P&J
