Information

The first main junction where the track ventures east from Dalhousie Springs into the Simpson Desert is called Freeth Junction. This junction intersects with ‘Rocks Road’ which is an ‘Emergency Use Only’ track that heads south through Macumba Station to Oodnadatta. This is a very rough and rugged track and permission to travel on it must be sought from both National Parks and Kidman Pastoral Company.
From the signpost at the junction there is no obvious track to the south which would be the Rocks Rd. Freeth Junction may be thought of as the place where the Finke River ends and soaks into the desert.
