Innamincka

Innamincka

I've only spent a few hours in this tiny town. When I visited, it was with outback pub broker, Peter Moore, who was calling in for a visit to publican Kim who owned the Innamincka and the Birdsville pubs at that stage. I remember it was a scorcher of a day, over 41 degrees, and we had to wait in the relative cool of the bar for the temp to cool down enough for us to take off on the dirt strip.

After we finally took off, we called into the historical Dig Tree for a look. It's only a short flight away, 23nm up to the north-east and well worth a landing at the Nappa Merrie Dig Tree strip to walk down to the billabong and read up on those last fateful days of the explorers Burke & Wills. Get the lowdown before you go, as you don't want to get the airstrip confused with the Nappa Merrie strip very nearby.
