Oodnadatta  South Australia

    •   Show me: a map of Oodnadatta

Oodnadatta lies in northern South Australia on the Oodnadatta track and is a convenient stopping point for travellers. The name is derived from a local Aboriginal word meaning "blossom of the mulga".

The Pink Roadhouse is an unmissable landmark in the town. Painted bright pink, the roadhouse seems to do it all - hot food, groceries, post office, fuel and mechanical repairs.

As you travel the length of the Oodnadatta Track, you will see information signs at various points of interest erected by the folks at the Pink Roadhouse.

The railway closed in 1980, and the old railway station has been converted into a museum that records the history of the surrounding area and the lives of stockmen and railway workers.

4WD travellers can head to the thermal ponds at Dalhousie Springs where you can bathe in the warm water, and visit the nearby ruins of Dalhousie Station. Adventurers can take their 4WD to Witjira National Park and the Simpson Desert, where the red sand dunes stretch all the east to Queensland.

Before you head to the outback, check out our outback travel tips.
