Lyall Oldfield has been dubbed ‘The Mayor of Marree’. In fact, Marree doesn’t have a mayor because there’s no council. I think it’s under the jurisdiction of the Outback Communities Authority. Marree has a progress association to take care of town business.
Lyall is descended from one of the first white settlers in the area. He’s quite a character, full of stories about Marree’s heydey as a railway town, and the Afghan cameleers.
You’ll find Lyall at the Marree Outback Roadhouse, along with a meal, supplies and lots of groceries!
