Shitbox Rally 2012 – Day Three

Day Three – Tibooburra to Innaminka, 404 kms, all unsealed.  Via Old Strzelecki Track.




We may have given the Amigos a little Top Gear bump…

Cameron Corner – the boundary between three states.


Sand dunes heading West from Cameron Corner.  So many sand dunes…

Somewhere after the sand dunes we took the wrong turn and a small group of us ended up on the Old Strzelecki Track, when the route was supposed to go the long way via the Moomba gas fields.  The track had recently been badly flooded and parts were bypassed, flooded, and deeply rutted.  It was fantastic, and a little bit scary – given how far we were from any help.  Eventually we made our way through and rejoined the development road and continued to Innamincka.

Welcome to Innamincka, population 12.  Surrounded by the Strzelecki, Tirari and Sturt Stony Deserts.
Beautiful spot to camp on the Cooper Ck, and a great pub.
