Birdsville Track - Winter Travel Feature

Thursday, Jun 18, 2015 at 13:18


The Birdsville Track is one of the great icons of the Aussie outback. Whilst it is actually the Inside Track that strictly follows the old stock route established in the 1860s, most travellers today use the "Outside Track", which was created in 60's to avoid the main hazards of the Diamantina floodplain.

The terrain varies considerably along the track from harsh red stones of the Sturt Stony Desert to the yellow dunes of the Natterannie Sandhills. Try starting your trip in the late afternoon to experience the richness of desert colours. Without a field guidebook the trip could be easily done in a full day but you'd just be blasting along the dirt and missing all the history and sights. Little is marked or signed and you really need to know what you're looking for to get the most out of your trip.

ExplorOz has published a comprehensive Birdsville Track Trek Note to help you get started with trip planning. We also stock a range of products in the Online Shop that will help you get the most out of your journey along this track:
