Where have you obtained that information Franken? Who has authorised 24 hour stops there? It was clearly no camping when we went through, although it does get posted as a place to stop on various internet sites and probably on Wikicamps.

Mountainman, it is not really the start of thread. It is a comment on a place, see the related page at the bottom of this page to go to the place and view the comment. The way the site is set up comments left on a place appear in the forum.

Yep I think he's right - it appears it has recently been allocated as a free 24hr camp.

Information came from a sign at the lookout. We would have stopped there if we had of known.

Thank you Franken. We stopped in for the view only, when it was signed as no camping.

Michelle, the CLC in Alice Springs have confirmed that nothing has changed and it is still as show on the Mereenie Loop permits as No Camping. Have you had otherwise advice?

Yes agree.. i checked with them on Friday too after reading it was permitted on a site I would have expected to have the facts right. Would be interesting to see a photo of the sign at the lookout that the OP says prompted his statement! For now if the permit says not permitted then its not.

I called the CLC permit office on Friday and asked for clarification on this is in writing.



So definately no camping here.

Please note the advice posted on the Travel Outback Australia website in the trek note for Red Centre Way says otherwise.

To add to the confusion, Wikicamps names the camping area as Morris Pass Lookout. In the photo section there is a photo of the sign allowing 24 hour camping. Although it may not approve camping there are also photos of rigs set for camping.
I notice that Morris Pass Lookout and Ginty's Lookout are 7.94 km from each other.

Sorry none of us bothered to take a photo of the sign. Perhaps the next person wandering past will. I wonder who authorised the sign?

G'day franken As above, there is a photo of the sign in Wikicamps listed as Morris Pass Lookout.
If you use Wikicamps could you have a look at the photos and confirm if it is the correct place and sign.
Did you happen to save the GPS co-ordinates?
