The Old Ghan Heritage Trail is rich in pioneer history where early trade routes and pastoral developers used markers like the Finke River and Chambers Pillar to guide their way north.
The Trail today closely follows, if not rides on top of, the Old Ghan Railway between Finke and Rodinga. As Oodnadatta was a major rail head of the time, this map guide follows the pathway from Oodnadatta up through Mt Dare, where alternative routes can be taken to Charlotte Waters. For those seeking further tracks north, the Old Andado Track offers another path to Alice Springs. Tracks throughout the region offer the traveller varied experiences of location and terrain.
