The Birdsville Track…

The legendary Birdsville Track is a journey I thoroughly recommend and like the Oodnadatta it was an easy outback track to drive.

Check out this part of the world. The Birdsville Track was tons of fun!

Stayed tuned for more adventures as we head from the desert to the coast.

Oodnadatta Track…

The legendary Oodnadatta Track is an unsealed, 615-kilometre road between Marla on the Stuart Highway, and Marree in the northern Flinders Ranges and at the southern end of the Birdsville Track.

The track traces the route of the old Overland Telegraph Line and the Old Ghan Railway.

Along the way were remote settlements, lots of history, quirky desert sights and the enormous, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre.

There were some creek crossings, a few rutted and flooded sections from the recent rain, mud, dust, heat and millions of flies but the landscape was beautiful and camping under the night sky with millions of stars was amazing.

South of Alice – South Australia bound…

We left Alice hoping the rain gods had permanently headed north.

No one could tell us if the Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks had opened but with a clear forecast for a few days to come, we pointed Harry Hilux south and headed through Heavitree Gap then turned right at the sign which said ‘Adelaide’.

As Alice disappeared in the rear view mirror, we set course for our next big adventure.

The long road north of Alice…

This blog records our adventure from a previous trip as we continued north of Alice Springs along the Stuart Highway.

We travelled through more of the unique outback towns of the Northern Territory as we followed the long straight road through to Kakadu, Darwin and Litchfield.

This was our second visit to the Top End, when only months earlier, we had exited from our more rugged crossing of the Gulf Savannah – another epic adventure on our recent Australian trip.

Join us at the crossroads and head north to Darwin… or east and read all about our Gulf Country experience. 

The road to Alice Springs and the West and East MacDonnell Ranges…

As Alice disappeared in the rear view mirror, we set course for our next big adventure.

Travel north with us to Darwin… or stayed tuned as we head south for the Oodnadatta Track.
