This rambling overland track follows the historic route of the old Ghan Railway from Marree to Marla on the Stuart Hwy. Highlights of this classic track include the outback outposts of William Creek, Coward Springs and Oodnadatta, the ochre pits near Lyndhurst, the ruined railway siding at Farina, the Strangways Telegraph Station ruins, the mound springs of Blanche Cup and The Bubbler at the Wabma Kadarbu Conservation Park near Coward Springs. There is plenty of history to explore in these arid expanses, and in good conditions it’s accessible to conventional vehicles.
