INNAMINCKA is an isolated outback settlement which is nothing more than a pub (a good one with quality accommodation and above average outback meals), a general store, fuel pumps and an airstrip on the Strzelecki Track. It is located beside the mighty Cooper Creek and, being 464 km north of sealed road, is a natural stopping point for refuelling both car and tired humans. Its importance lies in its proximity to the famous Burke and Wills Dig Tree and the romance of being in the middle of nowhere.
Location: Innamincka is located 1,164 km north of Adelaide via Broken Hill and 1,058 km via the Strzelecki Track. It is 464 km north-east of Lyndhurst on a dirt track.
No one is sure what Innamincka means but it is likely to be a corruption of ‘Yidniminckanie’ a word used by the local Yawarawarka Aborigines to describe how the rainbow serpent had disappeared into waterhole.
The Strzelecki Track is mostly unsealed but with a few short sealed sections to facilitate overtaking. It links Innamincka to Lyndhurst, passing through the Strzelecki Desert. The 475-km track was pioneered by bushman Harry Redford in 1871 and is passable to conventional vehicles during the dry season, although caution is required. A shorter route is available via a public access road between Moomba and Innamincka, making the distance 458 kilometres
This plate comes standard as a flat and non-embossed plate and for a little more cost we are able to give it a pressed out embossed border, so you have a choice. Please select your preference from the drop down menu.
These novelty number plates are made from high quality aluminium and the artwork applied by a dye sublimation process with a lovely gloss finish. They measure 37 x 13 cm, exactly the same as the traditional fully embossed type of plate and look just like our other Aussie made novelty number plates; even the mounting holes are in exactly the same positions, so they can easily be hung on display indoors or outdoors. One great advantage the flat non-embossed version is that owing to the absence of embossed border, and being just under 1 mm thick, it’s quite flexible and will flex about 10 cm from the centre, so can be mounted on curved surfaces.
Each embossed rim style plate is sealed in a clear plastic sleeve, and each flat non-embossed plate is shrink-sealed in plastic film, so both types are ready for retail display, plus we offer the option of fixing them to a cardboard display card, so they can then be hung and displayed on the same display racks that are used for the other Aussie size plates we sell. To see what the display card looks like please click here. For protection during delivery we use extra packing materials to ensure they arrive in tip-top condition

Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
