Outback South Australia
Immense and with a sparse population, the outback has a culture quite different from that of Australia's populated coastal areas.
'You can feel yourself relaxing as the landscape opens out around you.'

Oodnadatta Track
Flat with little vegetation, yet this track holds the heritage of indigenous people, early explorers and graziers. It is the route of the 'Old Ghan' railway and the Overland Telegraph. It passes Lake Eyre South and follows the permanent water of the mound springs without which the history of this region would be very different.

Is there water in Lake Eyre?

Coward Springs Campground

Bookings encouraged.

An oasis, a restored and heritage-listed railway site, a place to relax and 'really get a sense of the outback and its history'. Established as a family business in 1991, we are still here as your resident hosts.


We are open to day visitors between
