To find it, head 207 km east of Carnegie Station, 32 km west of Everard Junction or 500 m west of the Len Beadell blazed tree. There are no facilities here, so travellers need to be totally self-sufficient to enjoy the solitude and seclusion this campsite offers. A gas/fuel stove is preferred.

This campsite is located in Gunbarrel Highway
The Gunbarrel Hwy runs from the Warakurna Roadhouse to Wiluna, covering a distance of a little over 1000 km. Completed in 1958, the route has important historical significance, as it was the first road across Central Australia to the west. Visitors will travel through very remote desert country, so well-prepared vehicles and equipment are an absolute must. The magnificent desert scenery and sheer solitude of the environment make the journey worthwhile.
