Dig Tree camping area
Hugely popular with tourists passing through, this historic site is where explorers Burke and Wills were expecting to meet the remainder of their 1861 expedition party; however, all they found was a blazed tree and a limited amount of supplies buried. Burke later died under the tree. The campground is beside Cooper Creek with signposted access off the Adventure Way. For supplies, including drinking water, travel 55 km south-west to Innamincka, SA. Dogs are permitted if you advise the ranger in advance.
