Maralinga tour

We are thinking of doing this tour later this year and I'm planning our route. We'll go north up the Ooldea Rd but would like to return via Watson on the Trans line and then south down to the Eyre hwy. ExplorOZ calls this the Maralinga via Nullabor Roadhouse Rd. Does anyone know the condition of this track and/or requirements for permits. I've emailed Maralinga to seek their help too.

Just got a reply from Maralinga Tours saying the road is doable. That's good enough for me!

From Maralinga Village, it’s bitumen all the way down to Watson.

From there south it’s a single, slow track but easy, with sections of limestone on the track.

When you eventually reach the Old Eyre Highway, turn right and it’s only a short drive to the Nullarbor Roadhouse.

We drove from Watson to Disappointment Cave, then turned SE in 2018.
You need a permit from Yalata for the last bit.

Cheers,
