Lyndhurst Area – South Australia
At the junction of the Oodnadatta and Strzelecki Tracks around 600 kilometres north of Adelaide in South Australia, is the small community of Lyndhurst.
Described as the ‘southern gateway to the deserts’, it is the last town on the sealed road and the outer reach of mobile phone reception.
The start of the true outback!
There are many interesting sites around Lyndhurst such as the old Ghan rail siding sheds and town cemetery.
Venture a little further north up the Oodnadatta Track to view the spectacularly coloured Ochre Pits or to explore the old ghost town of Farina.
Travel five minutes up the Strzelecki Track to view the intricate talc stone carvings of local identity Talc Alf.
All are easily accessed, with care, in a 2wd vehicle. If you would like to experience a taste of the outback, make Lyndhurst your next destination.
