It is signposted off Namatjira Dr, 88 km west of Alice Springs. Bring drinking water. Note: generators are not permitted.


This campsite is located in West MacDonnell National Park

Stretching 170 km across the West MacDonnell Ranges west of Alice Springs, this is one of the most visited parks in the Red Centre. Its highest peak is 1531 m Mount Zeil, in the far west, and its gorges contain beautiful waterholes, startling white ghost gums, and retreats for wildlife. The park is connected by the 223 km Larapinta Trail, as well as by a multitude of shorter walks. A world-class bicycle path also leads through the park from Alice Springs. Most of the park trailheads are accessible by 2WD.
