Simpson Desert Regional Reserve to reopen March 15

Caravan World — 22 February 2009

Travellers and experienced 4WDers will again be able to access the Simpson Desert Regional Reserve as 6pm on March 15, 2009.

The SA Department for Environment and Heritage closed the reserve during the summer months out of concern for public safety due the extreme weather conditions that frequently reach between 40 to 50ºC during this time.

For travellers seeking to cross through the Simpson Desert Regional Reserve, a Desert Parks Pass is required.

For further information contact the reserve on 1800 816 078.
