This campsite is located in Anne Beadell Highway

Traversing some of the most remote terrain Australia has to offer, the Anne Beadell Hwy was constructed by Len Beadell over a period of 9 years, commencing in 1953. He named the highway after his wife, Anne. However, the description ‘highway’ is a little misleading as the track is often very narrow, twisting and sandy, stretching from Laverton through the Great Victoria Desert to Coober Pedy in SA. There are several places along the way that are suitable for camping but few or no facilities are provided. You need to carry your own firewood and drinking water. The longest stretch without fuel is about 750 km from Coober Pedy to the Ilkurlka Roadhouse. Travellers need to be well-prepared and totally self-sufficient. The following permits are required for travel through this region.
