There’s nothing to write about Marree other than it being the base for scenic flights over Lake Eyre and home to the most filthy, dilapidated caravan park we have ever stayed in. Lisa – if you are reading this, the ablutions were far worse than Redgum Village in Dandaragan – who would have thought that was possible?
There’s a youth centre, school for around 20 mostly Aboriginal kids, RFDS medical centre, pub, roadhouse, telecentre and caravan park. It clearly makes a living from the tourist trade going on the Oodnadatta Track or over Lake Eyre, but there is no sense of community pride that makes any effort to own or tidy the town. What a shame.
