I amincka is a tiny outpost on the Strzelecki Track adjacent to the magnificent Cooper Creek within the I amincka Regional Reserve. The township consists of its authentic outback pub, trading post, airstrips, homestay and the Natural Resources SA headquarters.
The area has a strong co ection to the tragic story of 19th-century explorers Burke and Wills, whose graves, and the famous Dig Tree, await discovery not far away. The pub is the social hub of I amincka and features a motel, 18-hole mini golf, Starlight cinema, and its acclaimed 'Outamincka' bar - a modern oasis where campers, visitors and locals alike can dine in air-conditioned comfort. Australia's largest billabong, the stunning Cullyamurra Waterhole, is just 16 kilometres away and is alive with wildlife and birdlife. Detour at Coongie Lakes.
Malkumba - Coongie Lakes National Park is a freshwater world of lakes, cha els, billabongs, shallow floodplains, deltas, and interdune swamps. It lies on the floodplain of Cooper Creek located about 110 kilometres west of I amincka in the I amincka Regional Reserve. You'll need a Desert Pass and a four wheel drive to get there, but once you've set up camp, you'll be richly rewarded with some of the most stunning wilderness and an endless parade of birdlife. A few days camping in this stunning location is well worth the effort, but remember to book your site and pay camping fees.
