Innamincka
 This tiny settlement is built around a hotel and trading post on Cooper Creek. The first European explorer to visit the area was Charles Sturt, who discovered the Cooper in 1846 while vainly searching for an inland sea. It was also the final destination of the ill fated Burke and Wills expedition. In 1860 all but one of Burke and Wills party perished near the creek. John King survived owing to the outback skills of the Aboriginal people who found him. Innamincka was once a customs depot and service centre for surrounding pastoral properties, but now mainly services travellers, many of whom come from the south via the intrepid Strzelecki Track. Four wheel drive enthusiasts flock to this remote reserve, a lush watery paradise set against a backdrop of the stark arid outback to tackle the terrain, but there is more here than just adventure driving. The area’s wetlands are internationally significant, particularly Coongie Lakes, which provide a vital refuge for waterbirds. Closer to Innamincka is the Cullyamurra Waterhole, on Cooper Creek, where visitors can see Aboriginal rock carvings.
