most of the gcr is aboriginal land and bush camping would be in breach of the permit(s) camping is permited at docker river campgrounds for under $10 and is worth the stopover for the veiws of the peterman ranges from the lookout in the morning

Providing you stick to the road (say 50m ) i can't see the problem. Nobody will arrest you for camping on the side of the road. Our tax dollars maintain it anyway.

Fred,
The DIA website states that camping is not allowed off the main road. The statement is on this page of their website (link is also found from our permits page).

We have needed to pull the odd bush camp alongside the road and they are extremely hard to find and certainly not ideal so we wouldn't advise that you would be any better off looking in the scrub rather than stopping at the designated stops.ExplorOz

According to the permit there are only three places you can stay : Warburton, Giles, Docker River. You may not be arrested but you could have the carp beaten out of you by an unhappy local, or worse, your vehicle damaged.Bob
