Many readers will be familiar with the legendary Pink Roadhouse in Oodnadatta, and the equally legendary proprietors Lynnie and Adam Plate.
Adam was tragically killed while participating in a car rally in Adelaide on August 24th. Adam made a massive contribution to Outback tourism over many years, first proposing the name “The Oodnadatta Track” back in 1980, and erecting hundreds of informative and often humorous hand-painted signs throughout Central Australia.
A more detailed tribute to Adam will appear in the next issue (#53) of the Bobby Dazzler Newsletter in a few weeks. Our deepest sympathy goes to Lynnie and her children.
