Most of the info you require can be sourced here on ExplorOz. Go to Trip Planning and click on Trek Notes. If you need even more notes you may contact me direct through my website

Hi Steve,
I did most of the treks you mentioned last September. You'll find all the info you need here on this forum, just click on the trip planing tab and go to trek notes, print it out and take it with you, I found the notes accurate and very informative.I don't go anywhere with out them now.

Happy Trails

In that area last year.....couple of notes.....Palm Valley is a great stay - beautiful place with facilities and two great walks.......couple of nights min would be the shot. Finke and northward on the Old Ghan track really p.....d us right off in September...... it had well and truly been flogged by a season of travellers - corrugations and railway dog spikes were hell....we did a u'ey.....went up the blacktop. In the East Macs, we had a great stay at Arltunga - Paddy's rock hole (frog city, at times)....fossiking etc too. Old Andado being just into the edge of the Simpson is interesting...... lovely red dunes.....the track up the Alice is ok, but I don't recall any particularly great ready for roadside disappointment all the way from Santa Teresa Mission into the Alice.

Speaking of the Red Center, is Kings Creek Station still operational?
