New Trek Note - SA Deserts

ThisHay River Trek is suitable only to 4WDrivers with a strong sense of adventure and experience in remote desert travel. This track is largely unmarked and good map-reading skills are essential.

Up until a few years ago, this part of the Northern Simpson was not open to the general public. However, now with a permit, you will be welcomed and guided through the area by the traditional landowner.


This trek note is in the new format including reverse driving directions.
