Witjira National Park

Published: 22 April 2021

Witjira has been subjected to a large rainfall event that has resulted in extensive damage to our tracks. Please exercise extreme caution when driving due to severe rutting, washaways and pot holing. There is a high risk of vehicle rollover at deep rutting’s for vehicles, especially for those towing trailers and caravans. We recommend high clearance 4wd vehicles only. There is also significant flood damage West of Purni Bore and may be residual water still on the track. Use extreme caution and drive to track conditions.

Please note the Pedirka Public Access Route and Bloods Creek Tracks are closed until further notice due to flooding and rain damage. Access to the park from Oodnadatta and Marla is via Mt Dare only.
