DOWN THE STREZLECKI

I was asked by a friend to put some pics up of when I went down the infamous Strezlecki Track in SA.
Honestly the track ( or road ) is always in good condition most of the year round, due to gas and freight trucks running up and down it all year from the gas fields to Adelaide and its surrounds. Attached are a few pics from when I chased a group of mates around on their BMW off road bikes and we shot down the Strez track, turned off at the top of The Gammon Ranges, where we wandered down the eastern side of The Flinders.

Strezelecki Track goes from Innamincka to Arkaroola, a distance of about 428 km. The track follows the stock route blazed by a cattle thief (cattle duffer), Harry Redford, who drove 1000 head of stolen cattle from central Queensland to Adelaide. He was caught, but when it was realised that he had pioneered a new cattle route across the outback he was let off, becoming a famous cattle drover. 

Some places of interest along this track are Burke and Wills' "Dig Tree", Coongee Lakes, the Cooper, for fishing and camping, and a short sidetrack from the old Strzelecki Track near Merty Merty homestead leads toCameron Corner, where 3 states meet. Montecollina Bore, SA, Arkaroola Village, SA, Strzelecki Creek, SA, Burlieburlie Waterhole, SA,Nappacoongee Waterhole, SA. A permit is required to visit Coongee Lakes.
