Should you be arriving from Birdsville, the approach point of Santa Teresa at the start of VFR Route 4 is a logical waypoint to track for.
Santa Teresa is an Aboriginal community with a prominent airstrip to its north-east and some low hills to the east.

VFR Route 4 follows a track of 273 as far as Mount Ooraminna, a small knobby-shaped rock formation on the south-west corner of this compact cluster of hills, lying just to the east of the unsealed Old South Road.
This is where VFR Route 4 meets VFR Route 5. At this point, navigation is made very easy. Just turn right, towards the north, and follow Route 5 inbound as marked on your VTC.
8NM north, you will fly overhead the old disused railhead of Ewaninga, on the western side of the road and comprising a cluster of little shacks and an old fettler’s camp.
You might be waiting a while for a train at Ewaninga.
If traffic flow permits, ATC may elect to clear you straight in from Santa Teresa to Alice via a VOR radial, rather than via the published VFR route, so listen out for the specific instructions associated with your clearance. This would effectively cut out the significant dog-leg in the published route.
