Marree is a small town located in the Outback of South Australia and marks the start of The Oodnadatta Track. Despite its size, it is a town rich in history and character.
Marree has a rich history that is closely tied to the early days of European exploration and settlement in Australia. The town was once an important stop on the old Ghan railway line and played a significant role in the development of the region. Visitors can explore the town's historic buildings, such as the old telegraph station, old railway stock and learn about its fascinating past.
