The Strzelecki Track is an outback track in South Australia, mostly unsealed but with a few short sealed sections to facilitate overtaking, linking Innamincka to Lyndhurst. It passes through the Strzelecki Desert.

The 459 km track was pioneered by bushman Harry Redford in 1871 and is passable to conventional vehicles during the dry season, although caution is required.
