Marree, SA

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.
