Section 10 – The Googs Track to Coober Pedy
The Connie Sue Highway is one of Australia’s outback tracks constructed in the early 1960’s. Today the Connie Sue is only travelled by a few keen 4WD enthusiasts, but for adventurous types, it provides a shortcut to the Anne Beadell Highway where it intersects at Neale Junction. The Anne Beadell Highway extends over 1350kms. This highway features rarely used tracks that are often very narrow, twisty and sandy and there are times when the vegetation encroaches. Travelling is predominantly over red sand, the conditions vary from fairly hard and packed surfaces to very soft. There are some sections where the track is corrugates with some washouts.
Main attractions / sites to see include endless dune, dunes and more dunes, plus ruts, ruts and more ruts, oh and some washouts!
