Day 8 - The Birdsville Track - Clayton Station

Wilpena Pound - Blinman - Farina - Maree - Clayton Station Campground

Waking up to a brisk -1 degrees this morning, we pack up the vans and grab some souvenirs, speaking at the Rangers Station it got to -5 at 5:45am this morning and it showed on our water hoses....

We leave Wilpena Pound and make our way north towards Blinman, but a quick stop at the Great Wall of China.. Looks amazing...

Turning left at Blinman we hit the dirt again on our way to Lyndhurst then onto Farina for lunch at the historic underground bakery. Back on the road again towards Marree... the start of the Birdsville Track...

Leaving Marree we begin our drive on the whole reason for this trip... The Birdsville Track. We make our way along the track to our first stop, passing a camel draw cart to the Clayton River Campsite. This place is amazing.... Hot showers, toilets and a spa bath.... Kids jump in while we set up for dinner and get the fire raging.... looks like we were lucky here, had the whole place to ourselves..... After a good feed of hamburgers its head to the pillow for a short squirt the Mungerannie...
