Suburb Overview

Oodnadatta, South Australia, is a small town surrounded by an area of 7,800 square kilometres with cattle stations in arid pastoral rangelands close to the Simpson Desert, 1,011 km north of Adelaide and 112 m above sea level. It can be reached by an unsealed road from Coober Pedy or via the unsealed Oodnadatta Track from Marree to Marla or from the north via Finke, Northern Territory. The name is derived from Arrernte utnadata, meaning " mulga blossom".

The population was 229 in 1976 and 160 in 1986. The 2006 census reported a population of 277.

John McDouall Stuart explored the region in 1859. The route mapped by Stuart in his journeys of 1857 to 1862 was adopted as part of the Overland Telegraph Line route. By the 1880s this route was being used by camel trains, led by cameleers from Afghanistan, both of whom were especially brought to Australia for the task of hauling goods into Central Australia for use by pioneer settlers. Camels were the only pack animals capable of taking on a six-week journey in often extreme heat, through sandy terrain. When train travel arrived, many of these camels were left to run wild in the outback where they number in the tens of thousands today. Many Afghan men and their families eventually settled in Oodnadatta and Maree, some marrying into the Aboriginal community.

Oodnadatta became the terminus of the Great Northern Railway in 1890, and remained so until the line, which then became known as the Ghan in honour of the Afghan cameleers, was extended to Alice Springs in 1929. Oodnadatta's busiest era was World War II when Australian Army and Air Force set up local facilities to service troop trains and fighter aircraft en route to Darwin. In 1981 the line was moved to the west, to avoid seasonal flooding and Oodnadatta, formerly a government service centre and supply depot for surrounding pastoral properties, became a residential freehold town for Indigenous Australians who, moving from cattle work, bought empty houses as railways workers left. Increasing tourist traffic along the Oodnadatta Track and an emerging mining industry keep the village alive. The Aboriginal school is the biggest employer.

Oodnadatta has a desert climate and has also recorded the highest reliably measured maximum temperature in Australia: 50.7

The name Oodnadatta has been used as a name for a crater on the planet Mars.

The Pink Roadhouse is a focal point for the town, providing petrol, a general store, meals, post office facilities and canoe hire. Although they really have canoes, it is not clear where to use them in the surrounding area unless the local waterholes are recently filled.

Oodnadatta is serviced twice weekly by the Coober Pedy Oodnadatta One Day Mail Run. The OKA mail truck also carries some general freight and passengers. Road trains bring weekly supplies of food and fuel etc. from Adelaide. Royal Flying Doctor Service and charter flights use the Oodnadatta Progress Associations' local all weather WW2 airstrip which houses an automatic weather station.

There is a museum in the old Ghan railway station, and a staffed Medical Centre. The railway station comprises a large and imposing Victorian-era home built for the station master's family, with verandahs on three sides, very high ceilings for coolness, and a cellar. Abutting the station-masters residence is the railway station office itself. The whole precinct has been kept in very good condition since the line closed, making it an interesting and worthwhile destination for anyone interested in rail history and early settlement.
