Information

The 'Walker's Crossing' is an actual point along the Walkers Crossing 4WD track between Innamincka and Birdsville. The crossing is named for Syd Walker who worked in SANTOS Field Services Division at Moomba. He was responsible for the rebuilding of this crossing of the Cooper Creek which suffered regular flood damage. Soon after the project was completed Syd had a massive heart attack and in his honour, the men of Field Services decided to name the crossing after him and built a memorial at the crossing. Later an attempt was made to steal the plaque so Field Services removed it to Moomba for safe keeping.
