Information

Madigan’s Camp sites are references to explorer and geologist Cecil Thomas Madigan who, leading a party of nine men made an epic crossing of the North Simpson Desert, by camels, in 1939. Madigan took 35 days to make his west/east crossing.

Madigan's Camp sites were all marked with small plaques on yellow painted star pickets in 1994 by Owen Correa Outback Expeditions. These day's 4WD explorers have begun to retrace Madigan's route of this 1939 expedition - thereby following Madigan's Line.

Camp 19 is just outside the eastern boundary of the Queensland Simpson Desert National Park however it is located on private pastoral property (Adria Downs).
