Oodnadatta Track - 12th September 2009
After being very bored the previous day driving down the endless bitumen of the Stuart Highway to Coober Pedy, we decided to take a different type of route to the Flinders Ranges: going along the Oodnadatta Track. After heading across to William Creek, it was a slow, scenic trip down the eastern 200km section of the track to Maree, as we followed the historic route of the Overland Telegraph and the original Ghan Railway, with its barren desert and artesian springs. The old outback pubs of William Creek and Maree at either end of the stretch provided some welcome refreshments on the hot, windy day.
