During this years trip to Oz I rented a beautiful 4wd Toyota Landcruiser Ute for the rugged drive to Lambina.
It’s about 235km from Coober to Marla then another 45km on a narrow single lane track through the outback on Lambina Station. But this year the road was chained and a “No Trespassing” sign was posted. Very discouraging. So it seems the mines are now completely played out and closed. Everyone I talked to in Coober was puzzled with this news. But all was not lost as we made a side trip to Mintabie to see the new diggings there.
