Information

This is the junction to Merty Merty Homestead 10km. Comes to junction with "Old Strzelecki Track" - warning, very slippery when wet but when dry a diversion path to Innamincka bypassing Moomba. The track is pretty barren but there are a few odd sights to keep you interested. The plain is dotted with numerous oil wells with brightly coloured pumps operating full-time like giant meccano sets. There are short tracks out to the well sites but due to public liability they are closed to visitors and you are advised to stay well away.

Note - if you continue east at Merty Merty its 54km to Bollards Lagoon along a firm but compacted red sandy surface with mini dunes - some 205 over 99km. At Bollards Lagoon you can camp pick up the Bore Track, another alternative track to Innamincka. Fee applies - available at Bollards Lagoon Homestead.

Also, just 15km further east of Bollards Lagoon is the corner post of SA, NSW and Qld, called Cameron's Corner. There's a small operation here - with fuel, basic camping, showers and a simple store.
