The ‘Oodnadatta Track’ and other main roads to and from Oodna are graded with reasonable frequency and can be negotiated by 2WD vehicles if there has been no rain, though 4WD would be a better choice. Do not attempt them in a 2WD vehicle after rain and think carefully about it even with 4WD. NEVER leave any roads unless you first tell someone responsible where you are going and when you expect to return - and do not even consider leaving the main roads except with 4WD, preferably in a group, and with suitable supplies and precautions. This is very unforgiving country and you are very isolated. If you should have problems with your vehicle stay with it and do not try to walk for assistance, even though it may be quite a long time before anyone else comes along! Although there is no risk if you are sensible, it is an unfortunate statement of fact that people die out here!
