Can anyone tell me if you can get from Finke to Horseshoe Bend and then from Idracowra to Chambers Pillar rather than having to head north to Maryvale then back south to Chambers Pillar Thanks.

We were there in Sep last year. The only way in from Finke is via Maryvale.

I agree with Gary. However, I think the people on Idracowra Station are running their own tours and I believe these include access to Chambers Pillar. When I was there last year I couldn't find anyone who had come through Idracowra.

Thanks for that i love getting there too but this is part of a 10,500km trip and i wanted to see both Chambers Pillar and Ayres Rock without too much back tracking.

Finke to Chambers Pillar via Maryvale is a very pleasant afternoon's run - up the old Ghan line to Rodinga is great. Don't do what we did in Septe 2003 and cut across Maryvale - they don't like it.

Hi Steve,

Idracowra were forced to close this access years ago as it got abused. These days theres heaps of 4wds out there, so they are forced to keep that access to themselves. Only access is via Maryvale. Hugh Stock Route is the usual access back to the Highway (Rainbow Valley is just north of the intersection).

Cheers
