Innamincka Regional Reserve
Innamincka Regional Reserve is a park of contrasts. Covering more than 1.3 million hectares of land, ranging from the life-giving wetlands of the Cooper Creek system to the stark arid outback, the reserve also sustains a large commercial beef cattle enterprise, and oil and gas fields.
The heritage-listed Innamincka Regional Reserve park headquarters and interpretation centre gives an insight into the natural history of the area, European settlement, Aboriginal people and Australia's most famous explorers, Burke and Wills.
From the interpretation centre, visit the sites where Burke and Wills died, and the historic Dig Tree site (QLD) which once played a significant part in their ill-fated expedition.
Shaded by the gums, the waterholes provide a relaxing place for a spot of fishing or explore the creek further by canoe or boat.
Innamincka is 1046km from Adelaide. Access is via the Strzelecki Track via Leigh Creek.
Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
