There are two main routes between Birdsville and Innimincka – the locals use both, although this route – the Cordillo Downs track, is the preferred. The Cordillo Downs track is an interesting trek with worthwhile stops to explore ruins of old buildings. We suggest that this trek will take 2 days, that’s because the fatigue and stress of attempting to complete this trek in one day have been the cause of many unnecessary accidents.
Just remember, you are supposed to be on holiday – if you calculate at least 7 driving hours plus allocate time for rest stops you’ll see that this is not a trip to be made in one day – we cannot stress this enough! Check out our top 5 stops along the Warrego Way.
