Farina Station to Warrina Siding

We had a walk around the ruins of Farina before heading north to Marree. The mice plague is alive and well in Marree and we were reluctant to do any shopping here. The Lake Ayre Yatch Club were a great source of tourist information before heading off onto the Oodnadatta Track. Our first stop was to let the tyres down to avoid tyre damage and then onto Lake Ayre South - amazing to see so much water in the middle of nowhere ! The only bird life here were seagulls !

From Lake Ayre we made our way to the mound springs - The Bubbler was just as the name suggests with water bubbling out of the ground - apparently its warm but we weren't allowed swim !

On to William Creek Hotel - another business affected by the mice plague - we stopped for a beer and a shower (bore water) before heading on to find a mouse free camp site for the night. We ended up stopping near the Warrina Siding and had a quiet spot all to ourselves.
