Welcome to Innamincka
In Yawarawarka and Yandruwandha country on Cooper Creek at the northern end of the Strzelecki Track, Innamincka is near where Burke and Wills' ill-fated 1860 expedition to cross Australia (Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria and back) expired. The famous Dig Tree marks the expedition's base camp, and although the word 'dig' is no longer visible you can still see the expedition's camp number. These days the pub and the shop are the hubs of local life. The whole township sits within the Innamincka Regional Reserve.
