    Brissy to the rock , the long way .

    So the planning for the next outback adventure is underway , for a bit latter this year . Will be going via the Odnadatta track .
    Been thinking a couple of ways to get down to Farina ( because we loved it last time ) , either out through Hungerford and make our way down , or back out to Inniminka , across walkers crossing track to the Birdsville track and turn left , (only reason for that way is we have never done Walkers , and the family loves Mungarrine pub ! )
    But i would like to get the good oil on what peoples must see things heading up the odnadatta trk , the not so commercial for lack of a better word , pretty keen to see / get into the painted desert , will have a couple of weeks to do between Marree and Uluru , and would like to get to Mt Dare and Dalhousie as well , then spend some time around Uluru , then if time allows home via the Plenty hwy .
    So ya best bits between Marree and Uluru , and yes I'm towing the van in my profile pic .

    I would happily spend weeks in the corner country , absolutely loved our time out there. Noccundra pub , excellent free camping on the Willson river across the rd , or if you need power or water camp at the pub , Yowah opal fields and Currawinya nat park not really corner country but well worth the small detour , as is Hungerford. dig tree fantastic if ya like your history , Burks grave out of Inniminka ( he picked a ripper place ), camping on the Cooper at Inniminka is fantastic , Cordillo Downs wool shed Sturts stoney desert , Birdsville big red sunset Compulsory, Mungarrine pub , still one of my favorites ( if i had the $ 1.2 mill i would call it home ! ) Old Phil was amazing to chat with , fantastic wet lands and a magic bore pool !
    Strezelki track , basically a highway lots of trucks , but heaps of history at some of the ruins and grave sites , Farina , another favourate great history , lots of ruins easy spend a couple of days there , got me a bit excited just writing this !

    Edit: gotta say 1 of the real highlights for us and the kids was spending a couple of hours parked at the old Cooper ck ferry , the station manager from Mungarrine station pulled up for a smoke on his way south , he showed the kids heaps of photos , and told them of station life , then offered us to spend a few days at the station , but unfortunately time did not allow , totally regret that decision big time now !

    Dont forget to throw in a couple of opera nets to get a free feed of yabbies along the way.
    last time I was at Camerons Crn it was only a shed that served drinks no outside toilets.
    Had an absolute ball there probably should of stayed the night but pushed and made Birdsville
    in the dark

    Oodnadatta track is full of history and things to see , the track was ok from Maree to Oodnadatta but the last bit to Marla is rough as guts and a spring breaker .
    Would have done the detour to Cadney park through the painted desert but have done that before , in hindsight it would have been the better option .
    Farina I agree is a must and to get there in the months they are baking bread is a must , cheese , bacon and herb pull apart loaf is to die for .
    If I do the innamincka thing again I will camp along the walker crossing section out of the town reserve because the water holes are much deeper .
