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 via cross-country dune driving (there is no formed track), however access is not permitted to numerous of the camps as they now lie within Native Title Determination Areas, and in Queenslands Simpson Desert National Park and no permits for access are given.

Camp 18 is within the Queensland Simpson Desert National Park and access is not permitted, no permits are approved.
