Oodnadatta Track / Oodnadatta - Cities, Towns and Localities

The iconic outback drive, the Oodnadatta Track, is a drive into history, following the route that 19th century explorers trekked, who themselves followed in the footstep of the Aboriginal people of the region, who had used this as a trading route, following the artesian springs and waterholes to be found along the way.

This region played an important part in the traditions and culture of the Indigenous people, with dreaming trails crisscrossing the area. The Oodnadatta Track crosses the traditional lands of three Aboriginal groups, and today a number of Aboriginal people live in the region, together with descendent of the Afghan cameleers, who had settled and married into the tribes, as well as Europeans and white Australians.
