Newikie Creek should be accessed from the north via Dust Hole Creek Road.
From Burra follow the Barrier Highway/A32 for 15km (to Mount Bryan), then the Mount Bryan East Road take White Field Rd/Dusthole Creek Rd to the start of the walk, stopping at the gate above Newikie Creek. There will be a 750m walk-out/walk-in for walkers. Only 4WD vehicles should attempt crossing the ford at the Newikie Creek.

Please note that the entry and exit of the creek on White Field Road before the Dust Hole Creek Road junction and Dust Hole Creek Road south of the junction will be treacherously slippery when damp or wet.
