Well we are now on our way to do the Simpson. But as mentioned I was keen to visit the track over the top of Lake Torrens on the way.

Well a couple of days ago we got to do it. I contacted the owners as some of you suggested and they confirmed that the track is open. Track took the best part of a day to complete (from Farina to Roxby Downs). While it had some minor challenges it wasn't all that tough, but was heaps of fun.

The trek was a pleasure from the perspective of the different terrain and landscapes that we got to enjoy. I would highly recommend it.

Some parts reminded me of the western end of the Simpson. So it was a good warm up as well.

I love that part of the world. Did you go to Andamooka and fossik for opal?? It is a good drive through there. There is actually quite a bit to look at when you really look hard.

Would agree that the Mulgaria run is a good drive with plenty of interest along the way. We did it about this time last year, and ended up spending a night on the track after having a bit of an adventure in a big wash-out. Only saw one other group of vehicles between Farina and Andamooka, so it feels like you are quite remote.

We thought at the time it would be a good run for anyone unsure about doing the big desert runs as there is a bit of everything, just on a smaller scale. We wrote a blog about it here
