Marree

Once known as Hergott Springs, Marree has a rich history. A staging post for the large camel trains carrying wool and supplies in the early days, it became an important railhead from 1940 to 1980.

Today, Marree is the starting point for outback adventures, including trips up the Birdsville and Oodnadatta Tracks. The Arabunna Aboriginal people still have strong ties to the area and celebrate their heritage and culture at the Arabunna Aboriginal Community Centre. Also worth a visit is Marree’s replica mosque, all that remains of ‘Ghantown’ whcih was once home to more than 60 cameleers, their families and 1500 camels.

Museum Park features the old mail truck used by outback mailman Tom Kruse on his run from Marree to Birdsville.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
