Googs Track was built by 'Goog' and 'Dinger' Denton along with Denis Beattie (Jenny Denton's brother) from June 1973 through to August 1976. A mammoth task by men with a true pioneering spirit. The track today provides 4-wheel drivers with a great means to seek adventure and experience a virtual 'mini' Simpson desert. Travelling over roughly 300 sand dunes climbing up to 25 metres, will test your driving skills with sand whilst taking in some pristine country through the Yumbarra Conservation Park and Yellabinna Regional Reserve. Googs Lake and Mt Finke offer popular camping locations with a relaxing environment. Although travel from South to North is recommended, this is a two-way track and drivers need to be aware of on-coming 4wds.
